The Incredible Hike Hiding In Kauai You've Never Heard Of
By Megan Shute|Published June 13, 2016
With more than 10 years of experience as a professional writer, Megan holds a degree in Mass Media from her home state of Minnesota. After college, she chose to trade in her winter boots for slippahs and moved to the beautiful island of Oahu, where she has been living for more than five years. She lives on the west side but is constantly taking mini-road trips across the island and visits the neighboring islands whenever she can getaway. She loves hiking, snorkeling, locally-grown coffee, and finding the best acai bowl on Oahu.
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?
