  • Pretty lookout with large parking lot along the way up the hill. I did enjoy some of the other lookouts more, but this was a nice quick stop.

  • Loved it. The first time we went, we couldn't see anything because of cloud cover below us. The second time, we thought we went on a clear day, but still couldn't see much by the time we got up there because of clouds. Both times we went in the afternoon. Later, locals told us to go in the morning when it is less cloudy. Still beautiful. The air really is thinner up there. Makes it harder to breathe.
  • It's really showing it's age. The Ni'ihau view is almost overgrown and the sign has seen way better days. The good news is that they're resurfacing the parking lot. The bad news is that you'll need to park on the road and that can be hazardous. Still, it's worth the stop!
