Actually, I'm lying. It's a great place. The only thing better than the park is the view. You'll squiggle your way up through residential areas, certain you've made a wrong turn somewhere. But if you're still on Round Top Drive, you're on the right track. The only thing better than the sunset photos you can take from there are the... More

Get all your picnic stuff together and go here! H-1 SE to exit 23. Left at the end of the ramp, NE onPunahou to Nehoa, turn left onto Nehoa to M Makiki. Turn right onto Makiki, which turns into Round Top, and later Nutridge is on the left of Round Top. The picnic areas, restrooms and vies are on Nutridge.... More

This is a great place to visit and take in all of the view it offers. This was included in one of our tours and it was well worth it.

Don't be put off by the two hour drive up the mountain, this place is worth the drive. The roads are very good and wide enough the whole way. $15 per vehicle park admission and reasonable, but with the toilets not working at the top of the mountain one wonders what you're paying for. I wish we had more time... More

Nice panoramic view of Honolulu. Not sure it's really worth the long, windy drive up. Great spot for picture taking.

We just made a short stop for some photos from the view point. The park also has an area for picnics which we did not use.

When I went to the park, the park was nearly empty, so I was able to take my time and take several pictures. It is a beautifully kept park and overlook. It is a must visit for anyone visiting Honolulu. Bring a lunch and enjoy the atmosphere, wildlife, and view.

Great place to bring a picnic lunch. A little difficult to find at first and not advertised as a tourist destination.

The view is amazing, I've never been there when it's been crowded and the drive makes the trip fun. Once you enter the park, follow the signs to the left to park closest to the lookout platform. It affords you a commanding view all the way east and west of the coastline of south Oahu. Great spot to take some... More

This is a "Must stop" for any first time visitors to Hawaii. You need to come up here and get a lay of the land. Would be a great spot for a picnic or just a few photo's. The drive up may leave some queasy, but the view is worth it.
