Astonishing, majestic views of the Canyon. Waimea Canyon was definitely the most interesting and beautiful part of Kauai. We spotted some mountain goats during the hike. Make sure your footage is secure if you decide to explore beyond the main trail, as it can be very steep. Quite a few helicopters hovering around.

Gorgeous hike. Probably one of the best. I'd give yourself 6 plus hours if you want to see everything.

Must do! Challenging, adrenaline rush and awesome payoff at the end!

Wonderful view at the end- keep in mind it's paved and entirely inclined at the beginning with no shade!

Easy out and back trail with a very nice fall at the end!

Trail has a sign that says it's closed.

went during rain so really muddy kind of slick.. would not wear flip flops.. multiple switchback across stream.. was almost waist deep in some areas.. would not take small children... moderate difficulty is about right.. great jungle trail feel..

Good hike, lots to see. Lots of people will be there when you get to the top.

Definitely one of the best hikes I've ever done in my life!!! The trail by itself is absolutely amazing, it's like walking in a botanical garden... The views are superb and the bath under the waterfall was awesome. Probably the best hike in Kauai!

Beautiful! The bamboo forests were unique and so magical. Found a couple little pools right off the trail to cool off in. Passion fruit and guava trees all over the place.

Outstanding.

One of my favorite hikes. The water is always nice and cold and is a great reward for all the walking.

Easy short hike, lots of small pools you can just chill in.
