After 4 years, we finally hiked down into Waipio Valley! It was spectacular and scary (25% grade) and awe inspiring in the end. As you can see from the picture of the mangled car, it's 4-wheel drive ONLY! No cheating on this one. We ate a picnic lunch, the boys frolicked on the black sand beach, and we even managed to get a ride up in the back of an acquaintance's truck. Lucky thing...the people coming up looked super miserable!
Activities like these might just persuade me to consider a second (more rugged) vehicle.
