This is an ideal place to view the taro fields and the mountains behind, before descending into Hanalei along the north shore road.

My wife and I stopped here. It is an amazing view. It looks out over a valley and onto a mountain range with numerous waterfalls. The only problem is the clouds kept covering the mountain view.

We stopped here after the road to Hanalei was closed due to a mudslide. Beautiful views! Even if you're going to Hanalei, stop here for a photo op.

Worth a stop, pretty spot right along the road between Princeville and Hanalei. There are two places, one offers views of thetaro fileds and mountains and the other of Hanalei Bay and the mountains.

Lovely scenery from this lookout point and easily able to park. Sadly the weather wasn't great when we were here so quite misty but still beautiful.

You pull off the road and there is this terrific view from your sixth grade geography textbook. So wonderful that land is being set aside for conservation!

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.
