Really want to go sometime between the 28th and July 3! Message on IG if you plan to go @kmanno

No doubt about it, this trail was hard! I had a series of extraneous problems that affected my experience on the trail, but the experience made me unlikely to ever hike this one again. The tourist helicopters are a huge distraction and they really detract from the vibe and natural beauty of the Nā Pali Coast.
Crawler's Ledge is not so bad, but the short section immediately west of it is more dangerous than any other portion of the trail. When dry, the trail is unstable, powdery dirt, but when wet, it's a Slip'n'Slide of doom. There's nothing to hold onto and the wrong step can lead to an untimely demise, so it's best to hike when it's not wet.
The State is ramping up its efforts to clear out squatters in the Kalalau Valley, so the increased presence of park rangers (and their helicopters) is ruining the feel of the place. The squatters won't bother you, but the State certainly will, so make sure you've got a valid permit if you go. If I ever visit this portion of the island again it'll be by boat.

Nice hike to get us back into the swing of things. Only real downside was I used a ton of deet-free mosquito repellent and still got bit 22 times! Otherwise the views were great and trail was well-marked. We did the lower first and then the upper.

Hiking this with my brother on the 25th early in the morning to see the sun rise over the island. Contact me through instagram or email if you'd like to join!

Totally worth the effort! I got a little dizzy at one point at the very top of the stairs, so I recommend climbing with another person.

someone else doing the hike on 24th or 25th of june? let me know! Hiking in a group would be more fun. :)

Worth the hike and less muddy than some of the other trails after a rain due to the some rock on the trail. A few mosquitos to plan for--but not too bad. In the end a beautiful waterfall.

This is a short, muddy woodsy trail. Be sure to bring lots of bug repellent, we got eaten alive. The waterfall was pretty, but not our favorite hike.

This trail was alot of fun but over crowded by tour buses. We did run the trail back down which was alot of fun. I would recommend going on a weekday and going early.

looking forward to enjoy the hike tomorrow. would really like to meet up with someone who has completed it before. please let me know. thanks


Anybody doing this in the next 24hrs? Looking for a hiking partner. I'm in good shape and and respect the land.

Hiked this trail this morning. Becareful there is alot of contruction in the neighborhood going in. Added some trail markers along the way to make it easier to follow. It was an amazing view at the top worth every bit of the hike to the top!
