Kalalau Rim Hike
September 14, 2013
Here’s one of our favorite hikes for views of the Na Pali Coast. You just go to the left at the green fence at the Kalalau Valley lookout at the end of the Waimea Canyon Drive. You hike the ridge and you see views right away, unlike the more known-about Awaawapuhi and Nuulolo hikes most people take. Those are each 7 miles round-trips, and this one’s only a couple of miles. This is a scenic unmarked hike that starts at the Kalalau Valley Lookout. If you want to hike the Na Pali, check this one out first. The Kalalau Valley Lookout is at the end of the Waimea Canyon Road out west (In Kokee). The Lookout has a green metal fence around it, and the trail starts to the left. GO EARLY, because clouds form as the day goes on, and can obscure the view! Take the trail off to the left by a narrow gap between the 2 metal posts on the green metal fence. It’s to the left side as your looking over the Valley lookout. Take a walking stick, a buddy, and water with you. The trail will start off steep at first, but levels off. It takes about 50 minutes to get there from Poipu.
