Hawaii Route 50 begins in Lihuʻe and heads west. The road passes through the only major shopping center on the island at the intersection with Route 58. From there, the road passes through the countryside and several small communities. There are numerous agricultural farms and plantations set up along the route. The National Historic Landmark known as Russian Fort Elizabeth is located where the highway crosses the Waimea River.
The last major sugar cane plantation on Kauaʻi is along the route west of Waimea. West of Waimea, Route 50 serves only as an access road to 4 major sites: Pacific Missile Range Facility, Polihale Beach, Kekaha Town, and Waimea Canyon via Route 550. The only public services available west of Waimea are a collection of tourist shops and a convenience store at the base of Route 550. Route 50 is named after Kaumualiʻi, the last king of the island of Kauaʻi.

Famous quotes containing the words description and/or route:
“As they are not seen on their way down the streams, it is thought by fishermen that they never return, but waste away and die, clinging to rocks and stumps of trees for an indefinite period; a tragic feature in the scenery of the river bottoms worthy to be remembered with Shakespeares description of the sea-floor.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“no arranged terror: no forcing of image, plan,
no propaganda, no humbling of reality to precept:
terror pervades but is not arranged, all possibilities
of escape open: no route shut,”
—Archie Randolph Ammons (b. 1926)
