The Garden Island Newspaper reported that on August 19 more than 200 people gathered at the Hanalei School cafeteria to discuss a proposal that would limit access to Haena State Park to 900 daily visitors via a controlled entry system, and create beach access by way of an elevated boardwalk.

The impetus for this proposal, which has been assembled by the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), comes from the realization that with roughly 2,000 daily visitors, “the end of the road” on the North Shore of Kauai is one of Hawaii’s busiest parks, and it faces significant issues pertaining to large crowds, lack of parking and too much traffic.  The proposed plan would limit daily visitors to just less than half of the current average traffic.

DLNR is seeking public input on the proposal up until September 8.
