A great hiking park. We hike with our small children through the foilage and discovered tiny waterfalls in the jungle. Then we came upon views of Waimea Canyon and goats galore.

Beautiful scenery up on the Na Pali coast. Amazing views, plenty of parking and facilities at various view points. Well worth visiting but worth seeing by sea or air too if you can.
