Hiking on Kauai any time of year is pretty much the same in terms of temperature. Light shorts and top that can get wet then dry multiple times during the day are the best.

The key is to be aware and prepare for the conditions you might encounter. For camping / night long pants and some kind of hoodie are nice.

My friends are hoping to do a one way hike from Kalalau beach in December via a zodiak charter.

Its not that bad, but you do need to be cautious and bring plenty of water or water filter! Aloha We are coming to kauai to hike Napali Coast early October with our 6 & 8 year old children. What do you know about trail safety, drop-offs, etc. How far is Hanakoa falls from the beginning of this trail? Then again, if someone took younger children I should hope I could make it :-) If you hike / walk / run on a regular basis this hike is very doable in 1 day. We're very light campers and were wondering if it was cool to harvest the Taro to make poi. Thanks for the compliment Mitch and the interesting question.

Also, how to get there without a car as we don't want to leave a rental car at the trailhead for 6 days. Hello, We're considering hiking the Kalalua Trail (entire hike) in November and are wondering what the conditions are typically like then. November can be nice but I know better than to predict conditions after 30 years on Kauai. I ran the trail in 2 hrs 16 minutes once and have hiked with a pack in 4 hours. Also if the Taro is relatively easy to find along the streams. Taro does grow wild down the Na Pali but I have never eaten Kalo from there.

This is because it can get slightly cool and breezy in the valley streams and shade.

Once you start hiking again the shell quickly comes off.

My preferred stuff is Patagonia Capiline (other brands too) because it dries super quick and provides sun protection.

If I'm gonna hike back in one of the valleys I'll bring an ultra-lightweight shell that packs to softball-size.I've written up some advice about this hike here: The most amazing hike i've done. Watch out during rains or for any sudden change in stream level. Is it possible to make it to Kalalau by nightfall if we start early in the morning? I noticed someone mentioned taking young children - is this advisable?I live on kauai, and a freind and I did this hike in and out in one day... I've seen many tourist (and locals) get stranded for a few days on the opposite sides of some of the rivers here (DO NOT TRY CROSSING IF YOU AT ALL DOUBT THE CONDITIONS) there have been many fatal accidents on this stretch of coastline. just bring enouph water and make sure you hit it during dry weather. I don't think I can make the entire 11-mile hike however, I would like to see Hanakoa falls. We're not planning to bring kids but the information on "narrow trails at great heights" and loose rocks makes me nervous.The difficulty of this trail and remote location of Kalalau Valley make this a pristine nature experience off the beaten trail.Some say that Na Pali is one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world.When it rains - and it can rain very hard at times - no shell will keep you dry and comfortable inside.
