This trail is at the 17-mile marker as you head up to Waimea Canyon and the Kalalau Lookout. We stopped at the museum and the lady at the desk said that it was the first dry day in the last 5 and this trail should be ok. It was definitely muddy along the way, especially the first 2 miles or so, but eventually we came out of the forest onto a beautiful ridge with view at the end that were just spectacular. It's all downhill on the way in, so be prepared for all uphill on the way back and give yourself enough time. We packed some sandwiches and some fruit & sat an enjoyed our lunch while taking in the view, plus it gave us some time to re-charge before heading back up on the trail. You'll definitely want some hiking pants, hiking shoes and some insect repellant - and your camera once you get to the view at the end!
