“Interesting views under any lighting conditions”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

This is one of our favorite views to photography whenever we are on the island. There is interesting light throughout the day: just before sunrise is one of the most peaceful; just after sunrise introduces some harsh shadows, but the golden light makes up for it, Mid-day light can also be interesting if you have some good cloud cover; end of day light has long shadows, but still worthy of an interesting photo. You really can't predict it given the changing clouds, but thankfully, this view is a 'low commitment' stop if you are in Priceville...no hiking required. My only complaint is I wish the town would consider pruning some of the trees to maintain a good panoramic view of the valley.

An artist was there when we were there just to add to the postcard perfect view of the taro fields below.

“Great lookout poing on the north shore”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Easy access just pull over on the side of the road where it says lookout area. There are two stop areas great for pics and viewing on the green mountains and waterfalls when it is clear out. The second stop area you can see Hanalei bay which is pretty. Great picture opportunity.
