Interior Trek Tour

Interior Trek Tour
Kauai Eco-Tours

This is a hard core trip! 10+ miles one-way, of rugged terrain beginning in the rain forests at the top of the Wailua river valley then on up to the base of the Makaleha mountains and finally “down the hill” to Princeville. The trail generally follows the power lines connecting the North shore to the power grid of the island. The first 4 miles or so are almost totally uphill through the beautiful forests above the Wailua river valley drainage with Uhau Lole stream to the Southwest and Keahua stream to the Northeast. On your way up this side of the trail a clear day will afford excellent views of Mt. Waialeale (the center of the Garden Island) to the west and the Makaleha Mountains to the East, which you can enjoy when we stop for lunch at the top of the ridge. The last 6 miles or so are up and down, generally declining elevation on the rain beaten and sun bleached plateau above the Hanalei river valley. This is a tour that few will attempt because of its difficulty but you will be rewarded with scenery that few have ever seen. We have many more tour offerings. Please contact us for other suggestions if you do not see what you want here.

Comments from others tours


The guide was a lot of fun that provided a lot of great information about the local fauna. Good workout.


This was a very enjoyable experience. The tour guide was very informative and accomodating. The scenery and vegetation along the trail is amazing. I highly recommend this trail especially for those who may not be used to hiking in mountains.


Peter took my fiance' Alex and I on a great trip out across the Na Pali coast on the Nualolo trail in May during our week in Kauai.
It was great to have Peter along to describe all of the plants, animals and terrain features that we came across. This trail covers many different areas of forest, dry scrub and misty highlands. The vistas out on the headlands were really beyond description. Hanging out over the nearly vertical 2000' cliffs that tumble down into the lush valleys of the West coast and all the way down to the glittering azure blue Pacific - it felt like we were flying!

As mentioned in the description, this trail is not one to undertake lightly as it is physically taxing as well as quite long if you aren't racing through it - which you should not!

Peter will take you on a tour of his island that you would not otherwise experience, so sign up and have a great time!
