The Incredible Hike Hiding In Kauai You’ve Never Heard Of

When most people think about hiking on Kauai, they ultimately think of the beautiful but grueling 22-mile round trip Kalalau Trail on the island’s Na Pali Coast. But there’s a little known hike found in the town of Kilauea that’s perfect for everyone – no matter your age or skill level. The moderate 5-mile Wai Koa Loop Trail meanders through the Wai Koa Plantation, by serene lagoons, a historic dam, and a majestic mahogany forest.

This place is, quite simply, the stuff dreams are made of. Isn’t it cool that you could most certainly spend an entire lifetime exploring Hawaii, and still not know every hidden gem the islands have to offer?
