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.

This Lookout will sneak up on you as you start the decent into Hanalei Valley. There is very little parking but it's worth the effort for the amazing photo opportunity you will have on a clear day!

This would be a good stop for those who haven't seen a view similar to this before (mountains, river and planted fields). It was worth a quick stop, but no need to spend 30 minutes here. It was actually a letdown after all the raving...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.
