Grab your camera! Enjoy an an easy, delightful 1/4 mile to 1/2 mile stroll in the inland and heart of Kauai. Many shaded picnic tables to rest and enjoy the beauty and peacefulness here. Discover Cinnamon trees, passion fruit vines, Papyrus, and the famous Kauai Rainbow Eucalyptus tree grove. If stream conditions are good, take a swim in the swimming hole or refreshing stream. Picnic table is at the swimming spot too.
A fern filled jungle hike with only an elevation gain of 400 feet. Native ferns, Hala trees, strawberry gauva trees abound. At the scenic lookout rest spot, enjoy sweeping distant views of Mount Waiele ele, Wailua and the Kipu and Kalaheo mountan ranges. The first part has exposed roots, and is muddy and slippery.
In one mile, we ascend 1,000 feet through a lovely trail through a tropical forest filled with bird songs. At the plateau, Mount Wai'aleale, Mount NouNou, Kipu and Mahalepu mountain and Poipu side are ours to see. We can rest at picnic stop or we can continue another hour before our descent.

NouNou Mountain Hike
Up, up we hike with the furthest destination of the "chin" of the Sleeping Giant mountain. It's a heart and lungs work out and the hardest hardest trail we do. We enter the quiet and majestic grove of Cook Pines that tower 150 feet above our heads. At the end of the trail, at the sheltered picnic area, we enjoy the 180 degree vistas of Kalalea mountain ( King Kong Peak) sweeping ocean views and Mount Waieleele.
