A beautiful paved hiking trail. At entry it looks like screams from Jurassic park. You can drive and park throughout or walk. Paved trail, with most beautiful nature views. Highly recommend.

I am so happy they reopened! My hike up here was one of my highlights of my few months on Oahu, this is such a hidden gem! If more people knew about this being free and having the most picturesque landscape of volcanoes, we’d all be doomed. Get there early in morning and enjoy the peaceful uphill walk. Take pictures, soak it all in. I read some reviews saying the man shews you away from taking pictures on THE MAIN INSTA worthy street and yeah... he kinda does without speaking, but it didn’t stop me from taking my time, taking selfie’s and even asking someone to snap some. Once you turn the corner the views get even better.... when you make it up to the top there’s a visitor center and I picked up a pamphlet that helped me identify birds and continued walking through the lake. I read some reviews that they recommend bringing a car since it’s so long and spaced out but I ubered here and did all walking myself and I have no regrets! I spent 3-3.5 hours here. I sat on bench listening to music and enjoying my morning - definitely could have done everything in 1.5-2.5 but why be rushed!? Nature is beautiful

Great place to go for a stroll. Lovely atmosphere and beautiful views. Probably my favorite of the five botanical gardens here on Oahu

I discovered this place on instagram and went early in the morning (7.30 am). Initially I was afraid about the reviews had previously read on tripadvisor about the photo policy bias. When I arrived, the road was closed but there was an entrance open for pedestrians. I took great pictures in the main entrance road, where this spot is located (see picture attached to my review). Later, around 8am, Ms. Olive arrived in her 4x4 car as per it was stated on the comments. I stopped taking pictures, but she was very nice. She explained me that officially she could not allow to take pictures, but that she didn't care as long as the road was closed to traffic and even offered to take a picture of my partner and I together! I have to say that when we were leaving, a family of asian tourists came to take a picture and she shouted at them and told them to leave immediately, so I was confused with that. Anyways, she was kind with me. Later in the afternoon, I came with my car to drive through as the road was open by that time. I strongly recommend not only going there to take pictures at the famous spot, but also to drive with your car inside the garden. The roads are very well maintained and the garden is very large, so there are lots of nice spots with the view of the mountains behind. It is very relaxing to drive slowly around such wonderful nature and get off for a walk. I would recommend at leats 1.5 hours to visit the garden.

The carving on the mountains live up to its hype on social media. My kind struggled to process of how surreal the place is. Though the pictures you see on instagram, too dangerous to take in real life. Also, wear mosquito repellant. Bugs are huge as hell.
