Kilauea Falls still not accessable ?

We are going to Kauai for the first time in Jan 2014 and we really want to do the hike to this waterfall . Is it true that the trail head is closed due to a new home being built on it ? Is it enforced ?

Thanks in advance

Lesley

It is my understanding from a post a few months ago that it is closed. If they are building a home and its private access I do not recommend you try and sneak in.

You can private message kauaihiker. I think he is the one that posted the information on its access.

Here I found it:

This was from August but I doubt anything else has changed.

If it is private property, you would be breaking the law by trespassing

Please do not ask for information on how to break the law.

Kilauea Falls is on private property and is inaccessible to visitors. I don't see this ever changing.

I thought that the owners might have granted permission to cross their property once the construction was completed . I was in no way looking to trespass and "break the law"

I suspect it's a liability issue.

As pzp has indicated in this day and age there is no way anyone is going to needlessly open themselves up to multiple liability issues. Public access would need to be well public...

If you owned a brand new multi million dollar home, would you open up your property so people can possibly fall and get hurt? I didn't think so....

The Wai Koa Loop Trail near Kilauea is on private property that the owners allow the public to enjoy.

If I owned it, I would charge the public admission to see it. Why not? It is a shame that we cannot go there.
