This hike is so spacious, easy, and fun! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time here and the view of Na Pali Coast was breathtaking! We saw lots of pregnant women and families with children here as well!

Rent a car, take the family, views r amazing. Check out all the vistas while you're visiting. Carry a light rain jacket just in case as it rains here off and on all day. Not usually heavy, just passing showers.
