Awesome trail. Hiking until the end is through the rain forest. It gets very slippery when it rains but should be manageable with hiking shoes. One of the best trails in Kauai

Even though it poured rain for over 2 hours of this hike, having it clear up for 10 minutes at the ending viewpoint made it worth it. Trail was a little slick and very muddy from all of the rain. Waiting 30 minutes at the end of the trail for the downpour to stop was worth it, looking down on the ridge lines and ocean was amazing (though very short-lived). I’d also recommend going in the morning, and bringing something waterproof to store your electronics in, because rain is pretty much a given this time of year. Rain jacket is a plus for warmth, though it will likely be soaked through pretty quickly. The rain also makes the narrow path out to the tip of the viewpoint very slippery, be careful!

Amazing vista at the end

Stunning view from end of trail. Bring water. Go early as clouds tend to gather later in the day.

A perfect hike, a must do! The trail is easy to walk on and the Vista at the end is worth it!

Lente descente sur le haut des falaises. Vue sur le Pacifique 750 mètres plus bas: Impressionnant!
Première partie un peu glissante. Des bâtons sont bienvenus après la pluie.

A good hike to stretch the legs on with stunning views at the end. Don’t let the ascent profile worry you it’s a nice climb out

Wet and slippery going down the ridge most of the way, but the sun came out right at the end of the trail with an amazing rainbow and a miraculous view! Hike out was much easier as it started to dry up, but still testing how well your shoes can grip the mud.

Great views but mundane trail descent. Hike back out has 2-3 step section, but for the most part wasn’t that hard.
