Hiking the Spine: Honopu Trail

There are so many different hiking trails in Kauai and Heinz and I just spent time on a few. Honopu trail is a trail that isn't well marked and a bit sketchy, so you won't find a lot of people if any on the trail.
 
There is no trail head sign. We found the trail head by reading about the trail before hand and kind of figuring it out. I am so glad we found it. The second best hike of the trip.

The trail is narrow and overgrown in spots.
 

 
 
 
Once you get on the ridge or the spine, everything opens up and beauty is revealed.










Looks like weather? You don't want to be caught on the spine if weather starts up. It is very steep and gnarly.
 
 
Looking down at Honopu Beach. This was truly a full circle moment for me, well for both of us. From being all the way down on Honopu Beach and now on top of the spine looking down. Doesn't get much sweeter than that.
 



So happy! It was an amazing hike in an amazing place.
 
Until next time,
Happy Trekkin'.
