Secret Falls Trail
(2 miles, +100/-100 feet).
Our last hike in Kauai was my favorite! It was very short, but to get to the trailhead we first had to paddle on the Kailua River, which was GORGEOUS!
It was about an hour paddle to the trailhead where a hundred kayaks crowded the shore. We carefully placed our SUPs in some tall grass away from the fray and then donned our Tivas for the one mile walk to Secret Falls.
I jumped into the falls while Half Cookie soaked in the scene. It was crowded but lovely all the same.
When we got back to the paddle boards we decided to explore all the inlets on the way back. They were wonderful!
Soon we were done, but we had one more encounter outside the Target in Lihu’e.
