We stayed in the park at the cabins at Koke'e Park. Wouldn't necessarily recommend staying there because it's very remote and takes ages to get everywhere else, but as somewhere for day trips I'd highly recommend. Waimea Canyon is a must see. We also tramped...More

Majestic views at two lookouts that do not disappoint. Make sure to get up to Puu o KIla Lookout early as clouds can roll in and you can't see anything. Also, the Awa’awapuhi Trail is a must. It's about 6.2 miles round trip, so a...More
