Many hikers travel to Hawaii with the sole purpose to hike Kauai’s NaPali Coast Trail.  The cliffs of the NaPali Coast drop straight to the ocean below and the rugged scenery is a wonder to behold.  Kalalau Valley, the end of the NaPali Coast Trail, used to be home to over 6,000 indigenous inhabitants prior to the arrival of the western world in Hawaii Nei.  Kauai is blessed with many of the most outstanding hiking trails in all of Hawaii.  Waimea Canyon and Koke’e State Park encompass several distinct eco-systems within a small radius.  One of the most rewarding aspects of hiking on Kauai is to set off on your trek through a high altitude forest and suddenly find yourself at the edge of a cliff looking 3000’ below to the ocean.  Hikes for any and all ability level abound on the Garden Isle.  Our travel guide of Kauai hiking trails is a great resource for those looking to hike Kauai while on their vacation.
