Beautiful hike to the point. The hike is along a flat, dirt road/trail, but you are exposed at all times. Remember your sunscreen and water. Enjoy!

The trek up to the towers is paved and easy. If you choose to continue the loop it will get fairly technical. At times the trail fades. Use your app to stay ion track and have fun. Beautiful views of the bay, ocean and Koko Head Trail.

Paddling on the Wailua River was nice but I would not do it again considering the slippery and muddy trails, crossing the tributary with a rope, the crowds at the falls plus the costs of renting the kayak with a guide.

It was alright. Not the pretty hike along the water we were hoping for. The highlight was the Alan Davis Beach.

Out and back two mile kayak trip was nice. 1 mile out and back hike to the falls was VERY muddy (ie slippery) and not easy for a 69-year-old MS patient. You cross one fairly rapid river and two streams.. lots of rocks and tree roots. Nevertheless, it was well worth the effort. The falls were truly spectacular.

Family friendly hike. Wear good shoes or hiking boots given the terrain, rocky and loose. Great seaside adventure.

Wow; the view, the perspective given the ledge and drop off, and an awesome spot for raw Hawaii surf. Definitely tread cautiously and if you can take the ladder down to the surf.

Beautiful! So glad we came. Must wear hiking shoes and bring water.

Mud, mud, mud. Won't be back.

If you are not in awe of the magnificent combination of natural beauty on display in this short but stunning hike, well, you either don't really like nature or your eyes are closed. What it has is a diversity of island landscapes, mixed terrain, ocean sounds with views of a crystal blue bay, mountains and whales. It also has a vast array of plants and birds. It packs in a lot in a very short distance. Stop reading and start living. Cheers!

Nicely maintained gardens, although it was wet after recent storms it was still educational and fun. Certainly, would go back and bring others.

Nice day trip but don’t go after it’s rained - way too muddy. Seen too many people and kids slip and fall. Lots of tour groups so secret falls was a bit crowded. Being able to kayak on the Wailua River was pretty awesome!

It was a good morning walk. Not strenuous but wear shoes that have some protection- the lava rock can be brutal on the feet. It gets crowded mid morning. Don’t mind the campers when you get to the end- go explore.

Nice little walk, I honestly can’t consider this a hiking trail.

This was one of the best hikes we’ve been on in Kauai. We used Wailua River Kayaks and would highly recommend them. We were the first ones down the river and the paddle up was really nice.... we were also the first ones to the falls so we were able to get some really nice photos. It’s definitely worth doing first thing in the morning because the rivers gets pretty crowded.

Very much enjoyable space
We went through an alley and there was rope to hang on to for the decent. A few memorial plaques help confirm the need to be aware of caution of surroundings.

The Koko Head Rim Trail is a 4 miles hiking loop with fantastic views of Hunauma Bay (an old volcano crater) and the furthest most point on Oahu. The route has no shade, so bring water and wear sunscreen. Child and pet friendly.

Here's the route:
1. After departing the parking lot, take the entry road uphill and turn right at the T intersection.
2. Continue to the gate at Kalanianaole Hwy 72
3. Cross the road to Hunauma Bay entrance
4. Turn right on the service road and cross the gate
5. Continue to the top (1st mile)
6. Turn down the trail and head along the Hunauma Bay ridge to the coastline
7. Continue up and over the saddle ridge
8. At this trail point, decide if you want to head down to the ocean cliffs or follow the loop (2nd mile)
9. Continue on the loop back up to the paved road (3rd mile)
10. Follow this road back to your vehicle (4th mile)

Here's the comprehensive video for the hike:

Nice hike, flat all the way. No cardio. Beautiful view of the ocean & the rocky lava beach

This trail is amazing although you start on a pavement. It is possibly short trail, but you will stop many times to enjoy places and views on Hanauma bay, Koko crater, arch, big waves, maybe also a lot of whales (as we saw them in january). Landscape is from different planet, don't forget to go down to the sea level to see the arch, beatiful surroundings! Bring a lot of water, as here it is always very hot (unlike on short Koko crater railway hike, where you dont need much water). Walking is easy here, for everyone, but can be complicated near the arch in steep passages.

Be sure to bring plenty of water and sunscreen as it is exposed to the sun the entire way. Mostly flat but beautiful hike. We also saw a monk seal relaxing on the beach!

It’s an ok hike, great views but please be aware of the elements! It can get unforgivably hot! Bring water and sunscreen.

Easily one of the most peaceful and beautiful getaways on the island.

Fantastic views! Bring sunscreen!

It’s a nice a nice walk ...if you need extra adventure, try heading up the mountain towards the pillboxes.

This isn’t really a trail... but an amazing place to catch a sunset and whales in the winter!

It was really flat and long but it is totally worth it!! The view is amazing!

Beautiful hike. There is no shade at all so it definitely gets hot I suggest to go early and bring lots of water! At the end you go into the bird sanctuary and at the end there are lots of tide pools. It’s gorgeous.

We kayaked out there and once we were at the peak we saw two monk seals off the north side of the island in the water. They chased around a sea turtle for a minute. I have seen birds in burrows around the island as well. It’s a scenic hike and getting to the island is half the fun. We caught waves on our way back.
