Waimea Canyon Lookout

Viewpoint in Waimea Canyon State Park

This breathtaking vista, at an elevation of 3400ft, stands at the intersection of several almighty raw red cracks in the earth. The views here are very different in the morning, when it’s usually very misty, from the glowing russet tones of the late afternoon. Koai‘e Canyon, clearly visible splitting away east of Waimea Canyon, is accessible to backcountry hikers.
