Queen's Bath is beautiful once you are there, but the trail down is very steep and dangerous. Sturdy shoes are a must and don't attempt it after a rain. We were there in March and the surf was too rough to enter the bath. Still...More

We are in our 60's and did not go down there. It can be very dangerous. Need good shoes and agility.

Unfortunately we were in kauai for a rainy week. I cannot emphasize enough what a mess this trail is when it's wet! There are so many beautiful views on this island, I think there are better options. Only about 8 parking spots nearby, otherwise you...More

A beautiful experience! The very steep rocky trail is a challenge. You need to have everyone very fit! Can be dangerous if there is heavy surf. Also, do not attempt after a heavy rain! Very nice! Highly recommended!

We went after two days of rain, it was extremely slick! I highly suggest tennis shoes and a walking stick if wet. Beautiful views, crabs and waterfalls along the way. I would not recommend in wet weather with flip flops. We saw many falls in...More
