Stuart Ball lists this trail as "the best day hike in Kaua'i and perhaps on the Hawaiian Islands." I can most certainly vouch for that! The vistas here are eye popping, jaw dropping, MIND BOGGLING! Nu'alolo Valley and the Na Pali Coast along with it are just simply spectacular, the world class of all world classes!

On this day, we started on the Awa'awapuhi Trail, crossed on over to the Nu'alolo Cliff Trails with the Lolo Vista Point at the end of that trail, and finally huffed and puffed our way back UP to the trailhead of Nu'alolo Trail to complete an 11 mile "horse shoe" (12 mile loop if you hike the final mile on Koke'e Rd from Nu'alolo trailhead to Awa'awa'puhi trailhead). We eliminated the final mile by parking two cars on both trailheads.

While not 'dangerous' (still be cautious with ANY trail ANYwhere), the views more than make up for the somewhat boring hike on the trail itself. I strongly recommend this hike!

However, the only catch is that during the start of the hike, one actually hikes down to the Lolo Vista Point and then climb back up seemingly forever back up to the trailhead. Keeping this in mind, don't get too overly excited while hiking to the vista point, you will need all the energy you can for the return leg, the leg that goes back up to the trailhead.
