On the edge of a beautiful Waimea Canyon trail in Kokee, you will find this rim view full of water falls and often rainbows, with views of the spectacular canyon in many directions.  See old Koa trees at their biggest and best.  Certain areas of this trail were protected by the last hurricane and have old trees still standing.  Need a 4WD for this adventure.  That I have.

Rainbows galore on the ditch trail overlook

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Outstanding spot to see rainbows in all directions with cliff and canyon views in all directions.  A jewel of Kokee is this spot and only a fairly short hike along the ridge.

The Beginning

Waimea Canyon, the Grand Canyon of the Pacific

 

Discover the vast array of hiking trails in the Canyon, from the valley floor to high in the Waialeale Alakai swamp.  From dry red dirt to lush grey mud and green swamp plateaus.  To views across the mountains to the oceans, always different, always spectacular, always a joy discovering the infinite ways Kauai shows off her beauty.  Come join me on a Hike Kauai Adventure Tour.  And this is just the beginning.
