From Honolulu/Waikiki, take H1 West to the Likelike Hwy. Take Likelike through tunnels, then move to the right lane to take Kahekili. Continue straight as it turns into Kamehameha Hwy (83). Continue past Waihole until you see the signs on the right for Kualoa Ranch. As you round a bend and see white fence and a field on your left, pull left into the driveway through the white fences. The visitor center is here, with ample parking. Ka'a'awa Valley is actually the next valley north along the highway, but the offices for all tours and activites are here at the visitor center.

The only ways to see the valley, also called Kualoa Valley, are either the bus tour, horsebackriding tour, ATV tour, or KOS 4x4 Hummer Tours. Kos Hummer tours will take you deeper into the valley, accessing more Lost filming locations than the other options on its off-road tours through the valley, and also provides a Lost filming locations package on request.
