“Steep climb”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

I dove up there this time in a rented Mustang convertible. What a fabulous drive and great views. A lot of cyclists on the road, so be careful if trying to drive around the switchback curves fast. I've ridden up it on a bike...very steep climb, but worth eh effort.

“Great drive!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Everyone should experience this drive! Beautiful and peaceful with bamboo forests and Cooke pines, the lookout is unreal with a panoramic view from Haneole to Ewa, amazing. Great place for a few hikes too.

“Wonderful surprise!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

The views are extraordinary from here. I would recommend this park to everyone. BTW, a scene from "Blue Hawaii" with Elvis was filmed on the lawn:)

“Great views, great drive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

Diamond Head has better views but just outside Waikiki this is a great spot and even better drive, especially on a bike or in a convertible. Its a slow drive but worthwhile if you want out and about a little. Pack a lunch.

“No View can match this one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

If visiting Honolulu, you owe it to yourself to take a drive up Round Top Drive on Tantalus to Puu Ualaka State Park.

Don't forget your camera, as you will see one of the greatest views you have ever seen in your entire life.

Breath taking does not even begin to describe whot you will experience. This is really a case of Seeing is Believing.
