Hey hikers! I am coming to Kauai for 10 days, and will be spending about 4 days by myself. I am planning to camp in the Koke'e state park campsite, and do day hikes around the park. I have been looking at the Alakai swamp trail, the Kukui trail into Waimea Canyon, and the Awa'awapuhi Trail. My questions are: 1. Are these safe to do as solo day hikes? I have quite a lot of hiking experience and I know what I am doing, but I don't want to get lost. Are the trails easily marked? Also - is there any issue of being a woman alone in the wilderness? Here in my hometown a few women have been assaulted in our big city parks. 2. Are most of the trails in Koke'e park accessible with a rental car? I am planning to rent a cheap car, nothing fancy. I don't want to get stuck in a ditch somewhere!
Thanks for your help!!
