Thumb Backside of Road to Hana

Road from Hana, Stop at Seven Pools Ranger Station to see if the back road is open for all types of vehicle

Road from Hana. Some blind corners you had to beep your horn to alert oncoming vehicles

























Road from Hana. Weather permitting, you should make the round trip.
This would be the ultimate Hawaii Adventure Bike ride!

OK, you tell the wife she has a beach day, and you rent the KTM 640 Adenture R for $179 per day, she is happy and you are very happy.

Man, the pictures just keep getting better and better. Sorry to hear about the get-off on the bicycle...but what's a good adventure without a crash or an equipment failure?

Oh and back on page 2 the pictures of the flowers and waterfalls are stunning. I'm a sucker for waterfalls.

Cool2 Kauai

Kauai, oldest & northwestern most of Hawaii's 4 major islands is also smaller, less populated, more rural, and more laid back.





We drove 375 miles in the 4 days in Kauai. We used two days in the north & two days in the south.
We stayed at the Sands Hotel in the town of Kapaa, which is on the mid-east coast.


Day 9: Tuesday, an early morning flight from Maui. We took the Northwest Coastal Highway and did some hiking on the various beaches and parks.


Day 10: We took the Northwest Coastal Highway to the Hanalei Bay Area and did a mountain hike on the Kalalau & Hanakapiai Trails.


Day 11: We took the southwest Coastal Highway for a road tour of the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. Toured the Red Dirt Shirt factory.


Day 12: Huey 500 helicopter ride with the doors removed .

Hanalei Bay Area

Kauai is home to more sandy beaches than any other major island in the Hawaiian chain.

view from our mountain hike, Kalalau & Hanakapiai Trails

Kalalau trail stretches 12 miles along rugged Na Pali, while Hanakapiai Trail tracks along the first 4 miles of the Kalalau trail ending at Hanakapiai Beach.



One of the Views from our Hike, Ke'e Beach. Located literally at the end of the road, The famed Kalalau Trail begins at the western end of the beach. Several movies and min-series have been filmed here such as The Thorn Birds and Castaway Cowboys.



Another view from our mountain hike, The Na Pali Coast. It has been featured in many movies including Jurassic Park, King Kong, and Raiders of the Lost Ark. "Na Pali" means "The Cliffs" in Hawaiian.

Nice pictures and report, did you manage to stop at Keanae on your way to Hana? My wife's great grandfather from China first settled there and married a local had many kids to help work the taro patch.
Aloha.

Thanks Foot dragger, The flight there and home wore us out. Before we left, we tried to bicycle and work out as much as possible. I worked a bunch of 12 hour days and weekends before and after the trip. We tried to do everything possible in Hawaii, as I know I may never go back. We even went to see a Don Ho show, that is when you know that you have done everything in Hawaii.

We not have much time for Keanae, as we did the Hana Round trip in one long day. Here is a Keanae Pano you will enjoy. Linky We did miss the walk down to Hana's Seven Pools.

I guess, if I had to do it all over again, I would still do the bicycle ride WFO. There were a few bikers that pedaled up the mountain, but not I was not one of them.

We did not get any food pics, and only two bike photos. Don't know what I was thinking.

My one regret of the trip, is that we did not schedule a trip up Mauna Kea. We did see it from the distance, but of course it would of been hard not to notice that monster mountain from the distance.
