This trail is completely overgrown 1.5 miles in. Usually use the app for trail running, but past a certain point the grass was upwards of 6’ tall and footing not so clear. Trail was interwoven with pig or hunter trails. Yes, saw lots of dog tracks at the beginning which tends to indicate hunters...not something I want to be walking around in 6’ tall grass knowing hunters could be nearby. Trail was basically an access road to the point it got overgrown. Oh well, was hoping to put in a solid 10 -14 miler given its connection to the other side of powerline. Got in 2 miles before I turned around. Couldn’t run past 1.5 miles or so

This trail is no longer maintained. It's mostly used for ATVs. There were quite a few swampy areas I waded through - the water was up to my thighs. About 2 miles in, it became impossible to see the trail. Rather than getting lost I turned around.

Was a decent trek but I wouldn't recommend it - there are way better trails in Kauai.

Only take this trail if it's few dry days passed - when it's wet its not possible to go through. I couldn't make all the way because of that and I hadn't enjoy walking near the powerline much.
