Directions: 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.
Water is available from streams, but purify before drinking. Trail and Waimanu Valley are year-round game mammal hunting areas; wear bright colored clothing.
Camping: Reservations for permits may be obtained for the nine campsites by contacting Hawaii District State Division of Forestry & Wildlife not earlier than one month in advance.
