Hiking Magnificent Kalalau Trail
We packed as light as we could. Sleeping on the beach — how hard can that be?
I guess you can’t say you’ve been to Kauai unless you’ve been to Kalalau beach. Only boat, helicopter or legs can get you there.
First 2 miles are awesome. You are fresh, clean, and smell nice.
2-mile mark. Feels great. 9 miles more. Water tastes like flowers.
Destination Hanakoa valley. You can camp overnight there.
Past 6-mile mark. Views are just unbelievable. Knowing that you are 50% there helps. Helps a lot.
You can finally see your final destination.
Just 1 more mile and you get to this
Stay more than 1 night. Enjoy, explore, count the helicopters.
After another 8 hours we made it back. Rain and hikers turned the trail into mud bath. The food never tasted so good. The bed couldn’t be any softer. Can’t wait to get back and do it again.
