Great hiking to waterfalls and the glorious coast. Be prepared for muddy trails. Many people find a single walking pole to be advantageous.

It's about a 20-mile drive along the Waimea Canyon road, then this park is at the end. The only way to go farther is to hike. The views of the Na'pali coastline and the razor-edge volcanic ridges are spectacular. Bring your binoculars.

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.

This is certainly worth the 22 miles drive up the canyon to look into a valley along the Napali coast
