We saw a lot of different hikers on this trail but make no mistake this is a challenging hike especially on a hot day. Coast line was gorgeous and beach at the end of the trail was pretty. Hike to waterfall was very slippery but...More

Koke'e State Park is a quiet, beautiful campground with access to be the best day hikes in the area. Each designated campsite has a source of water. The restroom/shower is not super-clean but certainly sufficient for a campground. Only cold showers though and be sure...More

The number one attraction on Kauai is the Napali Coast. And, there are lots of ways to see it. Helicopter and boat are the two most expensive ways, with a sail and snorkel trip costing almost $200 per person. Hiking the Kalalau Trail is another...More

Great stop to see the idyllic Kalalau Valley. Can be cloudy, but worth the drive. Be sure to go beyond this point for the second look out. Stay a while and enjoy the awesome views

Took the drive up to Koke'e State Park and then a short hike on Pihea Trail. The views of Kalalau Valley were jaw dropping! A perfect hike for anyone who wants to go just a little further than the fenced in / tourist filled viewpoints!

We were overwhelmed by the beauty of the area. Period. End of discussion. It is a drive but "get out of town" and leave early. We wish we could have made it a two-day trip because there is so much to see.
