Big trees, free range chickens

You'll know you arrived when the trees get much larger and the chicken population gets dense again. You're also almost at the end of the journey to the BEST VIEWS ON PLANET EARTH... read more

You'll know you arrived when the trees get much larger and the chicken population gets dense again. You're also almost at the end of the journey to the BEST VIEWS ON PLANET EARTH! (As long as the clouds aren't fogging in everything).

Depending on your energy and fear-of-height levels these mountains are all about drama. Bring your binoculars and cameras. Great selfie backdrop, just watch where you are on the edge.

Beautiful ocean views from the lookouts on the Waimea Canyon Road, and great hikes and birding in the Kokee State Park. Rain showers can blow in anytime so gear up and wear good foot wear for the many clay based trails.

We visited the Na Pali Coastline from the top (here) and from the ocean (catamaran). It is ALL spectacular. There is plenty of parking with easy access to many of the trails. The views go on forever...just when you think you have seen the best your next stop is just as awesome. This is a must see on your vacation.... More

If you are here on a nice day, you will have a view that ranks among the best in the world. This is a place that everyone should see when in Kauai. It can be hit or miss as fog is often present. Sometimes you get fog drifting through the mountains which can be beautiful by itself. Lovely Place

After having seen the Napali Coast from the ocean aboard a wonderful catamaran dinner cruise, we decided to drive up and see it from the top overlook. We were not disappointed after the fog cleared for just about five minutes. There are several view points in the park and the trail is easy. I recommend that you spend a bit... More

Great way to see Na Pali coast for free from above. Too bad the swamp trail was "strongly unrecommended" for days / weeks? when we were there: too muddy
