This very popular short, though rugged, hike gives you a sample of the Kalalau Trail along the famous Na Pali Coast. The entire Kalalau Trail follows the windward coast for 11 challenging miles to its end at Kalalau Beach, but you can experience a bit of it without too much effort. The glorious views begin almost as soon as you start the climb above Ke’e Beach, with its classic turquoise bay wreathed with tropical foliage and flowers. The overlook at the end of the hike reveals the long Na Pali coastline, lying at the base of some of the sharpest, most vertical, most dramatically beautiful cliffs in the world.
