The Unrivaled Canyon Hike In Hawaii Everyone Should Take At Least Once

Located in western Kauai, Waimea Canyon is often referred to as the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific,” and though the expansive canyon is not as big – or as old – as its Arizona cousin, you will surely never experience anything quite like this geological wonder in Hawaii. And while the lookout provides some stellar views of the canyon, no trip to this renowned state park is complete without a hike on the Waimea Canyon Trail.
