Fodor's Expert Review Kokee State Park

Waimea and Waimea Canyon Park (National/State/Provincial)

This 4,345-acre wilderness park is 3,600 feet above sea level, an elevation that affords you breathtaking views in all directions and a cooler, wetter climate. You can gain a deeper appreciation of the island's rugged terrain and dramatic beauty from this vantage point. Large tracts of native ohia and koa forest cover much of the land, along with many varieties of exotic plants. Hikers can follow a 45-mile network of trails through diverse landscapes that feel wonderfully remote—until the tour helicopters pass overhead.
