Water for the hike is available from streams, but purify before drinking. This trail and the Waimanu Valley are year-round game mammal hunting areas; wear bright colored clothing. Reservations for free permits may be obtained for the nine campsites by contacting Hawaii District State Division of Forestry & Wildlife not earlier than one month in advance.
General Information: Do not use any trail or access road that is not delineated by name and color and that may also be displayed on these maps. The marked features are managed for public recreational use. Other trails or roads that branch off from the public features may be on private property, and are not managed for any public recreational use. Access is subject to adjacent landowner approval, and if used without authorization, you will be trespassing and possibly putting yourself at risk.
Directions: From Makapala, Highway 240 leads off Highway 19 at Honoka`a to the eastern edge of Waipio Valley. A steep, four wheel drive road extends from the lookout down into the valley. Upon reaching the valley floor, take the road to the right, then follow the beach to Wailoa Stream. The road ends at the stream. Ford the stream and follow the horse trail on the dunes to the west side of Waipio Valley and the beginning of the trail.
