Moalepe trail connects to Kuilau trail. It takes about an hour and 45 minutes one way. I started on the Moalepe side and got picked up at the Kuilau side. Although it was raining this time, I've hiked this trail in the sun before and it's beautiful. You won't see any waterfalls or views of the ocean but there are several spectacular views of sweeping rain forest valleys. Along the way you'll see ti plants, Ohia trees, and many other native plants you won't see at lower elevations. The trail is very easy, very few difficult hills and I've seen people run it before. It's a nice, easy trail to give you a little workout on the Eastside of Kauai.
Basic but entertaining hike- best part is past the "end" of the trail where the picnic area is. Trail to the right here takes you to a more narrow ridge with very tropical views and eventually a small waterfall. I would recommend for someone that wants some alright views that aren't incredibly hard to get to but not on the side of the road either.
