Happy to report I had the opportunity and was lucky to hike the Kalalau Trail. I hiked it, flew over it it a helicopter, sailed in front of it. Take a good attitude and your time on this hike! Take a good camera, water, nutrition and enjoy! I wore some old running shoes and that were fine but going down I wish I would of had hiking shoes or some shoes that provided toe protection against rocks or were a bit more grippy. If your not up for hiking up 2.2 miles into the beach at least go to the 1/2 mile lookout! But since your there just go to the beach. I sprayed on insect repellent and sunscreen at the car before the hike and it did help. Lots of people on this trail so easily done on your own. I saw a woman trail running this with no water as part of her workout routine. Parking can be luck of the draw. No parking signs are posted all over in between parking lots on the road so it's worth it to just take another swing through the lots if they are full as someone will be leaving. I would say this was my favorite experience on Kauai.
