The Nounou west trail is incredible! Despite being strenuous and steep, and having to climb with all fours at times, the view at the top was unmatched! Not recommended for kids and people that are not physically fit,also not recommended at night or when dark...More
It is not easy hike but it is also not the most demanding. It is worth the climb. The view from the top is amazing. You can see most of the east Kauai. And on the way there are some guava trees and if you...More
Getting to the top of this trail you are rewarded with stunning views. It is a trek though! If it rains it’s going to be a muddy, slick walk. Add that to some pretty steep sections and it is a hike to take seriously. Follow...More
The trail was wet, muddy, and treacherous. But for the adventurer, this is a excellent trail. You will be challenged and the views from the top are breathtaking. Picnic tables at the top if you want to rest/eat. Be prepared to get muddy and wear...More
Definitely strenuous, but worth the effort. We're late 50s, early 60s in decent shape. Wish I had my poles with me! It's really doable without, but would have been nice. Slippery in some places so be careful. Lots of younger folks barefooting it for better...More
Just outside the town of Kapa'a, but well worth the short drive. I would classify this as a Moderate hike, about 3.5 miles in total, plan on about 3hrs depending on how much time you spend on the top. Make sure you pack water &...More
For such a low elevation, the hike was surprisingly challenging. The humidity made the hike a challenge. Bring plenty of water. There are a couple of rock scrambles that are moderately difficult for smaller children/teens. Make sure you wear appropriate footwear: no sandals! The view...More
I am over 50, so this trail was a kick in the pants, for me. Good thing I had a younger person with me to help pull me over some boulders. The trail is worth the trip and the views are breathtaking! Lots of friendly...More

if im not mistaken, the beginning is the same. However, about 50-100 yards up the trail splits and go right or left ( east or west). we took the well traveled east (Left) route. its was moderate to diffult. A local gentlemen said the other was more difficult and put you on the other side of the mountain. it also would require you to back track to get to your vehicle. The main left path had lots of pictorial spots and views...

Take the Haleilio rd in Wailua, parking is at a sharp curve to the left. This is the east trail head. Go early, bring water. Near the top, you will join with another trail; on the way back down be sure to look for that spot... More
Take the Haleilio rd in Wailua, parking is at a sharp curve to the left. This is the east trail head. Go early, bring water. Near the top, you will join with another trail; on the way back down be sure to look for that spot so you don't accidentally stay on the wrong trail.
