Waipio Valley Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"When you were dreaming of visiting Hawaii, did you linger over photographs of a broad, Eden-like green valley sealed off from the outside world by sheer, thousand-foot-high walls? Chances are that valley was Waipio Valley. This is your chance to spend some time in it. Take a few minutes to walk down to Waipio Overlook to enjoy the view of the valley.
Rain-drenched, dazzlingly green Waipio Valley is one of the Big Island’s most famous beauty spots. However, some of the waterfalls may be dry: their streams are tapped “topside” for irrigation, so there’s little water left to cascade down into the valley. The overlook offers the best views you’re going to get unless you decide to tackle the switchbacks you’ll see zigzagging up the west wall of Waipio Valley. This is an excellent place to take your photos of Waipio, too."
