Bring a bag of cat food

Great photo op, but there are many feral cats that have been dumped in the forest. It's so sad. We have done this drive before and remembered to purchase a bag of cat food in... read more

Yet another nice stop on the road to (or from) Hana. Beautiful views, ample parking, places to picnic, decent restrooms and a great opportunity to stretch ones legs. Also, another fine option to enjoy the natural beauty of this island. Certainly worth the time for, at least, a quick stop.

Great stop with plenty of parking. We could relax and enjoy the stunning view. We walked around the area a little. Worth stopping.

We stopped for a quick lunch on our way to Hana. The views were incredible, and the black sand beach was amazing!

This is a nice park and worth a look if you have time. There were plenty of trees there native and transplants. The size of the trees is quite astonishing. See for yourself, pictures don't get all of the view.

About 12 miles into the drive, you will come to this wayside. There is ample parking, but it can fill up. There are restrooms, picnic tables and a large grassy area. There is also a viewpoint to see the Ke'anae Peninsula, along with a couple nature trails.

I've rated 5/5, but don't be fooled: this spot IMHO is nothing more than a great photo opportunity. If you're doing the Road to Hana, be sure to stop here for a quick photo and possibly a snack or pee break.

We used Shaka Maui guide and they suggested this as the best bathroom stop. As far as flush enclosed toilets go I guess it was except there was a plugged up toilet so one less stall available. Come on people flush the toilet why continue to go, throw and not flush?!?! There are picnic tables to eat your lunch/snack and... More
