Waipoo. Waimea

Welcome to Luau Kalamaku

Several large waterfalls fall into the valley to feed the river which flows from the foot of the largest falls at the back of the valley out to the ocean. The rooms had all of the trimmings and it was definitely an amazing experience to spend a few nights at. The first viewpoint is a slight detour to the right, while you are still in the forest area. There are different starting points to the trail but all end at our desired destination- The Waipoo Falls. Exercise special caution during wet weather as the downhill trail can be slippery and dangerous.

Waipoo Falls

Simply choose the size you would like. Waipoo Falls is a 800 foot cascading waterfall that can be seen from various lookouts along the canyon road. However, a closer starting point for the Canyon Trail is on Halemanu Road. You can also snap magnificent pictures of the canyon from the Waipoo Falls Trail hike, a 3. Observe the beauty of the site while you drive down its main road, then turn toward the Spouting Horn blowhole on Kauai's south shore.

Canyon Trail to Waipoo Falls — The Last Adventurer

It is the best hike to me because at four miles roundtrip, it is accessible, it has stunning views of the canyon from inside the canyon, and it ends at the top Waipoo Falls. I've been backpacking and exploring epic locations around the world for the last four years. Both lookout points are great photo opportunities not to be missed at any cost. Buyer to do their own due diligence. We had no trouble seeing this waterfall during our visit as it was pretty much viewable from the road from a handful of overlooks. During the summer months, there will not be much flow at all and it may even be dry. If we could give 10 stars we would.

The Canyon Trail is a moderately strenuous hike located between mile markers 14 and 15 on Hwy 550. Then sit back and prepare for a spectacular Hawaiian Kauai luau show filled with hula, fire dancers, and a story that is sure to touch your heart. More Kauai Blog Posts I spent an entire month exploring the island of Kauai. Fully fenced yard for pets and children. It also allows the hiker the chance to swim in a waterfall, which is a once in a lifetime experience. By this pool is where we end the hike with a lunch, pause to enjoy the great quiet, and if you like a swim.

Hike the Waimea Cliff/Canyon Trails on Kauai

Face mounts give you quality that would be expected in the galleries of New York, for the walls of your home. When we send an email with a link to submit an activity review, we may include a coupon for savings on a future trip, to encourage review submission. The reality is you will only see the stream that becomes the waterfall. The patterns, colors, and textures of the rock formations from inside the canyon are just hard to imagine until you get down this close. This is a busy hike due to its ease of access and short duration but you can still find plenty of areas to zen out and enjoy the moment. Where to stay on Kauai Save money on Kauai by staying at an Airbnb! The unremarkable Cliff Trail from the lookout is unnecessary for the trek to the falls.

For an excellent overview of the Cliff and Canyon Trails, see our short video: Email subscribers: follow this link to see the on this post page. Hiking boots are not recommended. This is an easy 4 mile family hike and is great for people on both ends of the hiking spectrum. This is a paved public road but it is open only to 4 wheel drive vehicles. The flow of Waipo'o Falls depends a lot on the amount of recent rain. Make sure if you are drinking water from any streams or fresh water sources you purify your water with a purifier is certified to filter microbial leptosporosis or giardia not all do.

Stay well and we look forward to hearing from you. The trail ends at the top of the 800 foot waterfall along a fragrant Awapuhi Ginger lined stream where will find yourself perched high above the canyon floor with a spectacular view of the canyon below and magnificent photo opportunities. We publish both positive or negative reviews, when they meet our content guidelines. They call it the Grand Canyon of the Pacific and this hike will show you exactly why! You can also send us an email at for any inquires. Remember you will want to do lots of activities and get a rental car as well maybe so saving a couple of hundred a night by staying at the Kauai Shores Hotel compared to the Marriot will give you the resort vibe but not be extravagant on your budget. The views are just a short walk from the parking lot.
