The Puu Hinahina Lookout provides an expansive view into the Wimea Canyon, which is often called the “Grand Canyon of Hawaii.” From this viewpoint you can peer across the 10-mile-long, 1 mile-wide, 3,500-foot-deep canyon to numerous waterfalls and colorful rock formations. Also, you can see all the way down to the Pacific Ocean from atop the canyon walls and catch a view of the forbidden island of Ni'ihau 17 miles offshore.

In addition to the great views from Puu Hinahina you can access a system of trails from the locations. Clearly visible signage at the location provides directions for hiking options around the Wimea Canyon.
