Kalalau Trip Report- June 2019

My intention was to start early and get to the trail head as soon as I could but I made more new friends at the hotel and ended up having breakfast with them and talking a lot longer than I should have. I then parked my car and got a ride to the trail head. There are usually 3 parking attendants on duty at any one time (although there were only 2 when I showed up).

  1. Great commentary and description of the hazards before and after starting out. It will be nice to see fewer hikers in Koke’e State Park now that Kalalau is open. The Napali coast is not to be missed if you visit our beautiful island.

  2. Great trip report. How was the valley? Is the waterfall at the end of the beach still there?

    Cheers, Mark

  3. Thanks so much for the wonderful post. Just wondering if we plan on spending a night inside the park do we need two entry passes (as the pass/ticket I purchased notes only for sunrise to sunset on a given day.

    1. In order to spend the night, you’ll need a camping permit. That is different from the reservations you have. Only 60 people a night are given camping permits vs. 900 visitors per day.
