The Kalalau Trail along Nā Pali Coast of Kauai is probably one of the most beautiful trail I have ever hiked. Never have I done a hike quite as strenuous nor one that runs approximately 11 miles (one way) long along the island’s north shore from Keʻe Beach to the Kalalau Valley.

The drive to the trailhead of the trail was lush eye candy. I wish I had taken more photos while on the trail but to be honest, photos don’t compare to actually being there.
