Scottish-American naturalist John Muir said of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt. However most expert hiking enthusiasts crave more than dirt, they seek adventure and challenge. Lucky for them, Kauai is home to one of the most difficult and challenging hikes in Hawaiʻi—Kalalau Trail.
This 22 mile round trip trek is the original trail used by the ancient Hawaiians who made their home in Kalalu Valley and other remote locations along the Nā Pali coast. Beginning at Keʻe Beach, the Kalalau Trail offers the only land access to the otherwise inaccessible rugged coastline.
