“Nice view, didn't get into the valley.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

We didn't drive down the 25% incline road. Tried hiking down and made it 1/3 way before turned around. We compared it to the Pololu Valley and trail and thought that was better.

“Great Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

This walk down to the beautiful beach and then across to hike up the other side was a really workout but absolutely worth the magnificent views.

“A hard walk down into the valley but with a spectacular beach at the end”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

We opted to walk into the Waipio Valley with friends rather than take an organized tour. The walk down into the valley is very steep and of course the walk back up is even harder! (it took us about 30 minutes to walk back up at a very slow pace). But it is well worth the effort with a spectacular black sand beach at the end of the walk. Thenwalk is along forested area with fantastic views along the way. If you have a 4 wheel drive car, by all means use that and take a picnic lunch down with you. There are no facilities at the beach other than a very primitive toilet so make sure to take lots of water as the walk back is very dehydrating

Our guides, Omar and Travis were very knowledgeable and fun. The views of the waterfalls and the valley were tremendous. We had a great time.
