12/5/16 -  The Kalalau Trail, Napali Coast State Wilderness Park, Kauai  is OPEN.  Practice safe treks - do not attempt to cross streams during bad weather conditions.

 

Nāpali Coast State Wilderness Park

Nāpali Coast is a very special place. The pali, or cliffs, provide a rugged grandeur of deep, narrow valleys ending abruptly at the sea. Waterfalls and swift flowing streams continue to cut these narrow valleys while the sea carves cliffs at their mouths. Extensive stone walled terraces can still be found on the valley bottoms where Hawaiians once lived and cultivated taro.
