Around 10 miles going up a mountain. Two lanes. Place to stop to overlook but not necessary. Winding roads. No gas stations. Great views driving up and back. Nice small town at the bottom with local eateries and shopping. Once at the Grand Canyon of the Pacific free parking and restroom. Handicap accessible. Local food truck. A local that says... More

Read the other reviews if you want hiking specifics on the park. This review is more about the camping experience. Suffice it to say all the hikes and overlooks are spectacular...but watch-out if its wet. To call the red clay substrate around there "slick" is something of an understatement. Tread carefully and don't get too close to any drops, especially... More

This park has some great trails and lookouts that all have great views. Many lead to overlooks of the Napali coast which are incredible. There is a small museum/visitor center/gift shop. There is also a restaurant that has its own gift shop, coffee shop and bar. They also have a campground and cabins for rent as well as a pavilion... More

This is a two hour round trip hike that meanders up and down through the forest and back up to a ridge that looks out into the valley below. Hike down to the start of the small falls where there is a small pool. If you walk carefully around the pool to the right you will come to the cliff... More

The park is breathtaking. There are so many beautiful views from the road. It was getting late so we just drove around and didn't hike around. It is very pretty. We're use to the parks in Colorado and Koke'e is just as beautiful. The weather can be unpredictable but it's a must see.

Great views and phenomenal scenery. A true gem! Many views are easily accessible from the road turn offs but there are also several great hikes with more stunning views for the more adventurous.

Really fantastic park that should be attractive to all types of people: active, leisure, family, adventures. Be careful to study the weather in advance.

This would be a great trip just driving up here. A great trip just staying on paved paths and lookouts. But is the best when you lace up those hiking boots, pack water and head out on the trail! So much beauty words cannot describe. This needs to be experienced on foot immersed in the varied and unique environments.

Taking the drive up from Waimea to Koke'e is a must for any visitor to Kauai. For my money, there is no more beautiful place in the world on a clear day. Stop at each overlook, have a picnic or buy lunch at Koke'e Lodge, and pick a trail to hike for the afternoon. We chose the Pihea trail, and... More

Our family found this a great family excursion for New Years Day! We visited the museum. Had a beer and some pie, and played frisbee in the lawn area. I could have stayed here all day!
