Hiked this in two days and camped overnight at Kalalau beach by the ocean. BEST hike of my life!! Also the most challenging. I did several others in Kauai before ending with this one, and it will definitely stand out from an all-around standpoint. So glad I did it, with my boyfriend, as I was daunted by the reviews and weather (tons of rain) leading up to it. Not for the faint of heart!! I'll never forget it or the incredible views of the Na Pali coast!

Definitely one of the best hikes in Kauai and of my life! Best bang for your buck!

Awesome views of Waimea canyon - tough too but not too long - an easy day hike that can be tacked onto another. I would do this one again!

Very cool shorter trial with a hairy ending up at the giant's head! Make sure you go all the way up to the top, past the picnic area! Easy access from Kapaa so a nice day hike.

One of the best hikes of my life! Incredible views, absolutely stunning! Did it twice on the same trip and would do it again!

Says it is kid friendly but the trail can be steep and have loose footing with the sand/gravel over the rocks. Good hike and doesn't take that long.

The highest value ridge hike on the island. Best views on the shortest, safest, reasonably trafficked, and well maintained trail.

be sure to have decent grips on your hiking shoes!

Nice ease trail. historical locations

Hey guys.

Solo traveller looking to hook up with people to do this hike which is definitely on my bucket list. I will be in Waikiki Dec 25-Jan 7. Any day is fine, I'm flexible.

Please let me know if I can join you or your group.

Beautiful views with some interesting military history, but very crowded. I am a fairly experienced hiker, and round-trip it took me about 45 minutes. Probably wouldn't do it again, but it was definitely worth doing once.
