Pull off the highway and take a couple of pictures. Great view of the valley, and a reasoanbly safe (by Hawaii standards) place to pull off.

A few hour guided hike and the views were spectacular. The morning fog lifted and the view below was fantastic.

The overlook is simply a viewpoint or pullout at the side of the road. There are no trails or walkways involved. There are several places nearby in Princeville, in Hanalei or the lighthouse where you can walk with a pram.
