Fabulous views of Hanalei Bay, the Makaleha Mountains, and, weather permitting, one of the longest waterfalls you’ve ever seen are your rewards for toiling up this muddy and precipitous path. You climb toward the Makaleha Mountains, which culminate in Mount Wai’ale’ale, the wettest place on earth—though it is very unlikely you will see it. Long, long Namolokama Fall is the source of the Wai’oli Stream on the north side of the ridge, and the Hanalei River flows down the other side into the bay. Start at what looks like the continuation of the road below the cemetery, heading eastward. Boards with wire mesh have been installed and grass seed planted to keep the road from washing away and to make hiking easier.
