We drove to this while using our Shaka Guide driving tour app. It was interesting to see. There is a swinging bridge there but it was raining so we didn't spend much time out of the car.

I remember trying hard to find my way to the Bridge, and you drive through a lot of lower income housing areas, where people have tarps and broken down cars scattered about. The area itself wasn't as picturesque or impressive as I thought it would...More

Arrived there after seeing the Hanapepe swinging bridge not too far away. This is in a more remote area that is not very touristic. The ditch itself is not really attractive. The bridge next to it is cool but my wife thought it did not...More
