It was pretty, but kinda boring we did the self guided tour with the book, which we were charged $50 bucks and thought that was with a guided tour but wasn’t, it was hot and little shade, and the book and markers didn’t add up making it more confusing.. if I was to visit Kauai again I would pass this up

Much educational value. Interesting to learn aboriginal history of Kauai expressed by trees, Shrubs, vegetation and flowers. We were there in January which is an off time to see flowers in bloom. Many spectacular views from the top of the trail.
