As there are many reviews already, I will try to keep mine short. This is a great place to visit for all ages. You can do as little as just drive the roads and look out the windows at the INCREDIBLE views to as much...More

Don't miss the opportunity to see this amazing sight! I now know why it's known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific! If you're prone to motion sickness, you might want to take a Dramamine for this drive.

We stopped at each of the three lookouts and found spectacular views at all of them! The restrooms don't all have soap dispensers, so be sure to take hand sanitizer.

We did not have the time to hike since we had taken a biplane flight earlier in the day. However, we did the drive along the canyon. The views were awesome. Really did live up to the 'grand canyon of the pacific' title.

Beautiful vistas, easy drive with pullout parking sites for views. If u r interested in hiking there r plenty of trails, but can also just do the view spots for fantastic views.

take the drive to the north shore and enter there to waimea and you won't get behind any tour buses they go in from the other side. 7-8 in the morning is a good time

Look at weather reports but it should be pleasant but may be a little cool.
