KALIHIWAI FALLS HIKE

Looking for spectacular waterfalls on Kauai? Then trek along with us exploring all five tiers of Kalihiwai Falls! On this Kauai hike, you’ll also view the beautiful terrain of our pristine private ranch.

Of all Kauai adventures, this tour alone gives you access to the top of Pu’u O’ Henui (a 500-foot gain). Here you’ll enjoy stunning 360-degree views of the entire north shore! Then you’ll hike the lowland rainforest, learning about Kauai’s history, flora and fauna. Next scramble down a 10-foot rock wall and cross a waterfall, secured by a safety belt and assisted by your guide. You’ll be amazed at the view of the waterfall tiers – from the top down!

At the lower tier, you’ll have an 80-foot waterfall all to yourself. Enjoy an hour here – swimming, exploring the falls and relaxing with a delicious picnic.

Then your Kauai hike continues up-valley alongside several streams. You’ll cross a waterfall again and scramble back up the 10-foot rock wall, secured by a safety belt and assisted by your guide. Total hiking time is three hours, and hiking distance is approximately four miles across varied terrain. This tour is rated moderately strenuous with rough hewn stairs and multiple stream crossings.
