police were waiting for hikers when they came back down.

Great exercise, great view of a small waterfall, great views of a breathtaking canyon.

Not so great being inches away from slipping 1500 ft to your demise. I'd consider this a moderate hike, but also fairly dangerous, especially in slippery conditions.

An absolute must! We hiked to and from Hanakapi’ai Beach, which is quite rewarding. We saw a few people with flip-flops, which is extremely dangerous. Wear good hiking boots/shoes. It’s very muddy and extremely slippery (especially closer to Hanakapi’ai Beach). There are lots of uneven rocks and you have to cross a small pond at one point. The Nā Pali Coast views along the way are breathtaking! Add this hike to your Kauai priority list! Kudos to those who hike the 22 miles!

Beautiful coastline

Good work out. Brought our 7 month old dog and he seemed to love it. If you take the right side maunalaha trail, you will ascend up faster and be at the top in no time. Once at the top then its all downhill. If you want to ascend up slowly then take the left side to Kanealole trail. Its a loop that connects to other trails. Makiki valley trail is very shaded and beautiful. Bring some bug spray.
