Wailua Valley State Wayside

Wailua Valley State Wayside information

Lonely Planet review

Back on the Hana Hwy, just before the 19-mile marker, Wailua Valley State Wayside lookout comes up on the right, providing a broad view into verdant Keʻanae Valley, which appears to be 100 shades of green. You can see a couple of waterfalls, and on a clear day you can steal a view of Koʻolau Gap, the break in the rim of Haleakalā Crater. If you climb up the steps to the right, you’ll find a good view of Wailua Peninsula as well. Now, how’s that for a package? A word of caution: the wayside is signposted but it comes up quickly after turning round a bend, so be on the lookout.
