Kauai Ultimate Off-Road Ranch Tour

459 reviews
Go off-roading in Kauai on a 4x4 tour of Kipu Ranch, a historic landscape of mountains, valleys, and the secluded Kipu Kai beach. Get a lesson in driving a 4WD vehicle, or ride as a passenger if you prefer. Follow a guide to reach hidden and remote parts of the private ranch you’ll recognize from movies like Jurassic Park and The Descendants, stopping to take photos at each spot.

One of the most popular trails in Waimea Canyon. It can be tough and is not for those unprepared or with small children. There are parts that were very muddy, despite not having rained much. I suggest bringing poles or grabbing one by the trailhead. This is one hike that has an end goal and is well worth the effort once you get there. There are a couple nice vantage points along the way, but once you get to the top the views of the canyon are spectacular. You actually go back down to access a small pool and a couple points that put you at the very tip top of the falls you viewed from the road across the canyon as you drove up. Beautiful spot to just rest a bit and take in the beauty before the long trek back.

Beautiful hike with several viewpoints over the canyon . Trail has a lot of ups and downs and was very muddy due to the usual Kauai showers, thankfully I had my walking stick. Some slipping and sliding but nothing too dangerous

We visited once on a Friday and had to climb over some fallen trees. I assumed it was just part of the experience. But when we returned 6 days later they had been cleared. This is a must-do hike!

The hike back was a killer- but we are so happy we did it! I would not suggest bringing kids on this hike.

To be clear, we didn't hike the trail, we only drove up to the main overlook ($5 parking fee). No photos can do this place justice. Google maps will always tell you that it's "very busy" but it's certainly not overcrowded. Moreover, the drive up and back on Waimea Canyon Trail is absolutely gorgeous.
