Nice view of the valley, but if you're staying in Hanalei/Princeville you'll drive past it frequently so it's not so much a "destination." The views in late June 2017 were a bit obstructed as some of the trees and growth have blocked the view of...More

It really just looks like something you'd see on a postcard! An easy stop that is well worth the time.

This is beautiful overlook. Below are taro fields, and other fields, with Hanalei Bay to your right and the mountains to your left. Worth the look!

Great scenic turnout for viewing the farrow fields and the mountains on your way to Hanalei. Across the street is the Princeville Center.

Scenic view- and worth a quick (5-10 minute) stop. Ample parking to pull over and take it in. Not something to plan your day around, but if you happen to be in the area it's worthwhile to take a gander. 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.
