    Kauai Backpacking/Hiking

    Anyone made it to Kauai for some hiking or backpacking? I've got a permit on the Kalalau for next week, but we've got plenty of time to explore.

    Looking for some hot spots if ya got 'em.

    WTF, Kauai, you're every where now. Have fun.

    If you plan on going to the Maldievs in the future at least invite me along.

    Head for the Waimea Canyon road and Kokee state park. Lots of falls in the canyon, and then lots of trails on top, some with terrific views of Kalalau Valley below. But go early, very early: My experience was days usually dawned clear, but then it was either misting or raining by noon if not before. Bad part is that this is about the farthest possible place on the island from the Kalalau trailhead, which should be your first priority. Jealous.

    X2. X3 on the Jealous part too. I think I still have some crapy photos of waimea canyon and a hike my wife and I went on. I'll see if I can find them and post a couple.

    I just got back but I didn't do much hiking. A little to a "secret" waterfall off the Wailua river on a (5 mile water and 2 on foot) kayak trip.

    You may have seen this site already: http://www.hawaiitrails.org/island.php?island=Kauai

    As mentioned, I think this is one of the best hike/backpacking trips in Kauai: http://www.kauaiexplorer.com/hiking_...lalau_hike.php
