The Kalalau Trail, is located along the Na Pali Coast, which translates to the Cliffs in Hawaiian. This end of the island is one of the most beautiful and remote areas on the Hawaiian island of Kaua‘i.
In order to access this trail, you will need to park at the Ke’e State Beach to begin the 22 mile roundtrip trek.
Experienced hikers can complete the roundtrip 22 mile trek as a day hike, but the average hiker requires a two-day minimum and will need to camp along the trail. Camping is only permitted on the beach in the Hanakoa Valley.
For conservation reasons, camping is limited and you must have a permit in order to camp along this trail. For those uninterested in hiking deep into the Na Pali Coast, excellent views are available at the 1 mile mark. The hike is ranked as one of the top 10 most dangerous hikes in America because of the remoteness, high winds, and rugged cliffs.
