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.

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.
