This is a wonderful place to visit but I highly recommend you take a helicopter tour as there are only two roads and so much you can't see by only driving. Take hikes to see all the beauty.

We were fortunate to visit the Huleia National Wildlife Refuge which started on Kayaks from the Nawiliwili Harbour. We paddled the Huleia River about 4 kilometers, taking about an hour. Then we were taken on a short walk through part of the refuge where we took a minibus to where our hike began down to Jungle Falls. The path was slippery at times but it was an enjoyable trek to reach the falls. For those of us more adventurous, we took a dip in the cool pond of water at the base of the falls. To say it was refreshing is an understatement. We returned from where began the hike for a picnic lunch before returning to the harbour, but on the way back we made a short stop to view the Menehune Fish Pond.

Breathtaking area with beautiful scenery. When you take the road to the Menehune Fish Ponds you are along side of the wildlife refuge and the best place to get an overview is from the Menehune Fishpond Overlook.

or along the Hule'ia stream in a Kayak. It is closed to public visitation. Hule’ia National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1973 and is located in a valley between the Ha'upu range and along the Hule’ia River next to the Menehune Fish Pond. The refuge is home to endangered Hawaiian waterbirds found on Kauai. The refuge can be observed from the 'Alekoko (Menehune) Fish Pond lookout. Outstanding views.

We drove through the refuge on the single lane road. It was nice but the trail was the highlight. We hiked up a very steep and often muddy trail. I would recommend you wear hiking shoes for traction. At http by the transmission lines you look out over the bay. The view was breath taking. On the other side you could see the valley which was also breath taking. I am so glad we kept on trekking through the mud.
