Hawaii's Department of Land and Natural Resources has announced Haena State Park and Na Pali Coast State Wilderness Park will reopen to public access by the end of June.

Both parks are on the northwest side of Kauai and have been closed since record rainfall caused damaging floods in April 2018. The flood waters wiped out park infrastructure and caused landslides along the famed Kalalau Trail in Napali State Park.

Repair work is currently underway, and when the parks reopen the number of visitors will be limited, the DLNR announcement said. Parking spaces will be limited and there will be a fee, and a shuttle will be available to take visitors with reservations to the parks. 

The exact date the parks will reopen is expected from DLNR in May.
