We stopped at the pier during our trip to the canyon. The pier is neat to see but not worth the trip. The water was very muddy and brown. There was a family having a picnic on the end of the pier and they were...More

We stopped here whilst out for the day visiting Waimea Canyon and as we were interested in the history of it we walked out to the end. Take the time to read the information boards.
