Stopped here while touring around the park. Great views and places to park to enjoy the scenery. Worth spending a day in the area or longer if you want to hike.

This hike is so spacious, easy, and fun! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time here and the view of Na Pali Coast was breathtaking! We saw lots of pregnant women and families with children here as well!

If the clouds don't persist, there is a beautiful view. Special note at viewpoint at the end of the road, it is not a good idea to hike past (to the right of) the viewpoint and down the hill. There are no guard rails. You...More
