On occasion parts of the Kalalau Trail is closed to visitors. Sometimes this is due to trail maintenance or a planned event like it was last summer for the feral goat and pig hunt. When these planned events happen, the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), Division of State Parks does not issue permits during that time period. This can be disappointing if you were planning a trip for that time period but at least you can find out ahead of time that there are no permits available.
Na Pali Coast on Kauai, Fox Island in Alaska, Sardinia, Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, Chilean Patagonia, and five more breathtaking views. It’s no wonder we made the list. If you’ve already been across the grueling trail, why not visit the coast in a kayak?
Thanksgiving Break 2010, at the last minute my friends and I decided to hike the entire Na Pali Coast and Hanakapi`ai Falls for a total of 26 miles. We hiked 11 miles on the first day and 15 miles on the 2nd day. We passed by some of the most magnificent landscapes I’ve ever witnessed, vivid sunsets, remote waterfalls, and even witnessed fire dancing at the hikes end. Kauai is truly a garden island paradise.
