Kauai Trails and Hikes

Kauai is a great place to hike regardless of your hiking ability. I have
put together a web page of several of our favorites that you can do
with a limited vacation. Also there are some great web sites out there
detailing all of Kauai's Hikes.

Sites Along Kuamo'o Road in Kapaa/Wailua

    There are so many great sites to see along Kuamo'o Road which
    turns into Waikoko Forest Management Road just past the
    Keahua Forest Arboretum. If you are looking for something to do
    with the Jeep you rented, you can take the road all the way to Mt
    Wai'ale'ale and see Blue Hole. I wouldn't recommend a car without
    high clearance past the Jurassic Park Gate. (The road condition
    often is very poor even for a Jeep!)

                                          DIRECTIONS:
    Take Highway 56 north from Lihu'e toward Wailua. After crossing the
    Wailua Bridge, turn left on Kuamo'o Road at Mile Marker #6. Coco Palms is
    located on the corner. The Historic Sites are on the left side of the road.
    Opaeka'a Falls Lookout is approximately 1 1/2 miles. Keahua Arboretum is
    approximately 8 miles.

                  Ke'e Beach / Na Pali Coastline

     Ke’e Beach is literally at the end of the road, and probably the
    most visited beach on Kauai. The famed Kalalau Trail begins at the
    western end of the sandy beach. Swimming,snorkeling,and scuba
    diving is very good here. Also there is good shore fishing near the
    reef channel. There are restrooms and picnic facilities.

    * Be sure and get to the beach 30 minutes before sunset.
    Turn right on the beach and walk down the beach at least
    100 yards. You will then be able to see the sunset right
    down the coastline. Every night is different!

      Na Pali Coastline / Kalalau Valley Lookout

    This fifteen-mile stretch of rugged coastline on the northwest
    shore of Kauai literally means "the Cliffs." Much of Na Pali Coast is
    inaccessible due to its characteristic sheer cliffs that drop straight
    down, thousands of feet into the ocean. Sailing, rafting, helicopter
    and hiking are the best ways to experience Na Pali's myriad of
    natural wonders. A must-do Kauai activity.
    From the far west side of Kauai you can go to this glorious
    lookout which provides you with a panoramic view of the Kalalau
    Valley, the largest valley on Na Pali. This point and the less
    frequented Pu'u o Kila Lookout provides the greatest views of the
    Pacific. The Na Pali coastline continues on to Ke'e Beach.

         Kilauea Lighthouse

    Kilauea Lighthouse is the northernmost point of the main Hawaiian
    Islands. Built in 1913, it had the largest clam shell lens of it's kind.
    In the 1970's its light was turned off and this landmark was
    replaced by a low-maintenance light beacon. Native vegetations
    and an informative visitor center attract thousands of tourists to
    this site to bird watch and whales when in season. The overlook is
    a great place to come see the sun rise.

                           Princeville / Queen's Bath
                       Hideaway and Pu'u Poa Beach

    This gorgeous resort area was named after Prince Albert, the son
    of King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma who died in 1862 at the
    age of four. The area is renowned for its ocean bluff
    condominiums, full-service resort hotels and spas, world-class golf
    courses, excellent shopping and international restaurants. Great
    beaches: Pu'u Poa and Hideaways and a great little hike and swim
    to Queen's Bath. Queen's Bath is one of the most unique and
    refreshing swimming areas on the island. The "pool" is carved into
    a lava shelf and is the size of several large swimming pools

                                 Kauai Waterfalls

    Wailua Waterfalls- This majestic, 80-foot tiered waterfall is
    located close to the roadside lookout for everyone to enjoy. The
    falls were made famous when they were featured in the opening
    scene of the popular television show, Fanasty Island.
    Waipo'o Waterfalls- Is a fantastic waterfall on Kokee stream
    dropping 800' on two tiers. It is located in the heart of Waimea
    Canyon, the Grand Canyon of the Pacific.
    Opaeka'a Waterfalls-The falls are approximately 150 tall and
    flow year-round. There is a nice viewing area off Kuamo'o Road.

                                  Waimea Canyon
             The Grand Canyon of the Pacific

    Waimea Canyon is the largest canyon in the Pacific. The canyon
    measures 10 miles long, 1 mile wide, and more than 3,500-feet
    deep. It was carved thousands of years ago by rivers and floods
    that flowed from Mount Waialeale's summit. The lines in the
    canyon walls depict different volcanic eruptions and lava flows that
    have occurred over the centuries. Numerous lookouts and hikes
    offer terrific views of every aspect of this natural wonder. Koke'e
    Museum and Park has hiking maps of the area and has cabins for
    rent. There is also a restuarant located at the park

    Be sure and get to the summit before 9:30, that's when the
    morning mist rolls in and covers Kalalau Valley.
