Wailua Falls

Kauai, Hawaii, 96746

Praktisk info

Wailua Falls ligger cirka 8,3 mil utanför staden Lihue. Medan det finns spår som leder nerför den branta klippan mot botten av de dundrande fallen, är spåren branta, exceptionellt farliga och officiellt begränsade för vandrare. För att nå fallen, kör norr om Lihue i cirka en mil tills du når Ma'alu Road, och sväng vänster för en fyra mils resa in i de dimmiga kullarna.
