16 miles north of Waimea
There are a lot of hiking oportunities in Waimea Canyon, we did the Po'omau Canyon Ditch trail, a 8-mile hike with spectacular vistas into Po'omau Canyon.
Starting point is the Mohihi Camp Road, a dirt road, going off the highway at Koke'e Lodge. After 1.5 mile you'll come to a sign saying: 4wd only. Leave your car there (unless you happen to have a 4x4 of course) and walk another 0.7 miles until you get to the entry point of the trail to your right. The way back is via Kumuwela Road until you get to Mohihi Camp Road where your car is waiting.
The whole tour makes a good day hike...and don't forget to pack in something for lunch, at the end of the ditch trail is a perfect spot for that...
