Pololu Valley Lookout - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
The google map satellite view of this part of Hawaii does not zoom in far enough to see the beauty of this part of Hawaii (August 2007). The view from here is stunning, but in this picture looks a little poor because of the numerous cars parked beside the road. I would love to have had more time to explore this part of Hawaii further and walk in the valleys and see the waterfalls. It s famous and has been used in numerous films.

The area is broken up into numerous forest reserves and access is by foot only for the most part.
Travel and Getting There:
Take the H19 (north from Kailua-Kona) to Kawaihea and Spencer Beach Park. Then take the H270 for about 30 miles through Kapa'au to the very end close to Keokea Beach Park and Keokea Bay.
