My wife and I hiked the Pihea Trail in late June 2007. It had a nice combination of spectacular views and interesting vegetation. We hiked from the overlook to the intersection with the Alaka'i Swamp Trail.
This was a muddy trip, but lots of fun. The high elevation meant it was cool and pleasant to hike. I particularly enjoyed the vegetation changes along the way--the moss, ferns, and bromeliads get more interesting as you approach the swamp.
I wish we had more time to take the Swamp Trail all the way to the end. One more reason to return to Kauai!
