Waimea Canyon Lookout

Waimea Canyon Lookout information

The most scenic of the lookout points along this stretch of Waimea Canyon Rd is Waimea Canyon Lookout, signposted 0.3 miles north of the 10-mile marker, at an elevation of 3400ft. The prominent canyon running in an easterly direction off Waimea is Koai'e Canyon, which is accessible to backcountry hikers. Conventional tour buses go no further than this lookout (but the state is planning to widen the road to Kalalau Lookout for buses).
