Lovely canyon with greens and clay coloring. Interesting topography. Crowded roadways and parking lots. Go early to miss afternoon clouds which can block your view.

Sadly when we got to the top it was rainy and foggy. We could not see anything in the canyon. The road had a lot of twists and turns and could cause car sickness but overall not bad.

This 40-mile round trip drive takes you to many beautiful vistas. This landscape was a bit unexpected on an island of lush rainforests. The waterfalls were really flowing given all the rain while we visited. No gas station on the road, so be prepared, and there's not much for food along the way.

If you are going to Kauai you must stop here. There were some local girls selling some island goodies. It wasn't too crowded. The day was cloudy so the colors weren't as vibrant but it was still very pretty !! There are some fun hikes in the park. It is also nice that they don't charge money to see the park.

Really beautiful! Not the Grand Canyon, but nothing else is. It is easy to see and a lovely drive. We stopped at the little museum. Eat before you go, or take food.We didn't have the greatest weather, but it was still beautiful.
