Parking is horrible. The wife and I arrived around 12:30pm. We had to park about a mile up the road. So we actually started 12:57 pm. Made it to the beach in about 1hr 20min. Took a couple of pics. And turned up the path...More

Stunning views of Napali Coast, breathtaking waterfall & jungle so green you may never want to leave! Just ask the creepy zombie squatter we saw! This is not an easy hike! Start early, eat a hearty breakfast, bring at least a gallon of water per...More
Great hike! If you are new to hiking take your time as the trail in the beginning is really rocky when you start at Ke'e beach. Its a gradual incline and decline. We started at 7:03 am and got to Hanakapi'ai beach at 8:00am. Hung...More
7:10a start time - 2:55p end time = 7:45 total hike time ... this included 45 minutes at Hanakapi'ai Beach & 75 minutes at Hanakapi'ai Falls. We had plenty of food, but only had 70oz of fluid each & wished we'd had even more because...More
What An Adventure. We went in January and the trail was super muddy. The hike was challenging but well worth the effort. Take a swim at the Falls. Exhilarating. We did allow enough time at the Falls and found oursselves coming down in need the...More
View from the Kalalau trail on the way in are unbeatable. 2 miles of fairly easy hiking and then 2 more to the waterfall. Last half mile into the waterfall requires some easy bouldering. Get to the trail head early. My wife and I got...More
One of the best hikes I've ever been on. We started at 10, got to the falls at 1, spent about an hour there, and got to the car a little before 5. INCREDIBLE day. Unreal scenery.
This is a difficult hike- 4 miles each way. Take water!! You are treated a lovely beach after 2 miles. The stream crossings were difficult, but gosh, the reward when you reach the waterfall!! This was the highlight of our trip!!
It seems like half the couples in Kauai are expecting so I'll highlight my pregnant wife's experience. My wife is 5 1/2 months and just completed the hike to the falls with a return trip to Hanakapi'ai beach two days later. The trek to the...More
This is a four mile one way hike to a secluded waterfall. At the end, do not miss out on swimming in the pool under the waterfall. The water is shockingly cold but worth it after hiking four miles on a warm July day. Be...More
