Took the drive up to Koke'e State Park and then a short hike on Pihea Trail. The views of Kalalau Valley were jaw dropping! A perfect hike for anyone who wants to go just a little further than the fenced in / tourist filled viewpoints!

We were overwhelmed by the beauty of the area. Period. End of discussion. It is a drive but "get out of town" and leave early. We wish we could have made it a two-day trip because there is so much to see.

Kokee State Park is located just north of Waimea Canyon State Park in the northwest corner of Kauai. To get there take Highway 550 north from the town of Waimea (this road ends in Kokee State Park). The Kokee Museum is located inside this State...More

The trails are very poorly marked and the trail is no more than a goat track....be very careful even on something marked 'Moderate' or easy....this is misleading
