I live on kauai, and a freind and I did this hike in and out in one day... I've seen many tourist (and locals) get stranded for a few days on the opposite sides of some of the rivers here (DO NOT TRY CROSSING IF YOU AT ALL DOUBT THE CONDITIONS) there have been many fatal accidents on this stretch of coastline. just bring enouph water and make sure you hit it during dry weather. I don't think I can make the entire 11-mile hike however, I would like to see Hanakoa falls. We're not planning to bring kids but the information on "narrow trails at great heights" and loose rocks makes me nervous.Its not that bad, but you do need to be cautious and bring plenty of water or water filter! Aloha We are coming to kauai to hike Napali Coast early October with our 6 & 8 year old children. What do you know about trail safety, drop-offs, etc. How far is Hanakoa falls from the beginning of this trail? Then again, if someone took younger children I should hope I could make it :-) If you hike / walk / run on a regular basis this hike is very doable in 1 day. We're very light campers and were wondering if it was cool to harvest the Taro to make poi. Thanks for the compliment Mitch and the interesting question.
DLNR State Parks Fees and Permits Latest info about campsite closures from DLNR.Rated a '9' out of '10' in degrees of difficulty by the Sierra Club. Plus, there's detailed Kauai vacation maps and neighborhood info... A tough hike but arguably one of the best in Hawaii.Extreme inclines and declines throughout entire 11 miles. Loose rocks underfoot and from eroding cliffs above. I highly recommend going the entire distance in one day because the camping is MUCH better at Kalalalu.If you are afraid of heights and ledges you are not going to like miles 6.5 to 8! I've only hiked the first two miles in to Hanakapi'ai Beach and back and it was a fantastic hike! About 13.5 tough miles if you want to do a day hike (which I have and it's great).I've written up some advice about this hike here: The most amazing hike i've done. Watch out during rains or for any sudden change in stream level. Is it possible to make it to Kalalau by nightfall if we start early in the morning? I noticed someone mentioned taking young children - is this advisable?
