Pull over, jump out of your car, have a quick look, read the informational sign, and you’re done. It’s a nice view, but don’t make a special trip.

Pull off, get out and have a look down the valley. If you are lucky and it is clear and sunny - the view is breathtaking. The mountains form a backdrop for the emerald green of the cultivated fields. Could be a postcard for Hawaii.

This is a good place to get out of the car and stretch your legs and enjoy the views. I wouldn’t think that you would spend much time here - maybe 5 to 10 minutes. But it does give you an opportunity to enjoy the...More

The view has been obstructed by weeds and overgrown vegetation. There is a decent sized parking lot for the lookout. There are free roaming chickens that will chase you once you get out of your car. Not worth a specific trip here but worth a...More

The overlook is simply a viewpoint or pullout at the side of the road. There are no trails or walkways involved. There are several places nearby in Princeville, in Hanalei or the lighthouse where you can walk with a pram.
