Kauai Waterfall Hike

Kauai Adventure Series: Private Waterfall Hike

January 9, 2020

At Timbers Kauai – Ocean Club & Residences, our central location in Hokuala and knowledgeable adventure guides make exploring the Garden Isle’s natural bounty as convenient as it is effortless.

In the same amount of time it takes to venture from Hokuala to Poipu’s sunny beaches, you can just as easily be hiking through a tropical rainforest on the North Shore. With the help of a handpicked collective of local experts, our team will happily facilitate your adventure however you define it.

This month, we’re showcasing a family-friendly private waterfall hike and swim, which has become a favorite of many of our Owners—several of whom have done the hike numerous times.

The waterfalls are nestled in the Hule’ia National Wildlife Refuge surrounded by a bamboo forest and lush, tropical foliage.

“This is definitely one of my favorite trips we offer. It is the perfect introduction to the natural beauty of Kauai,” said David Burden, Jr., Timbers Kauai’s unofficial Chief Adventure Officer. “It is an absolute must-do for first-time visitors and a constant highlight and favorite for our Timbers ohana, too.”   

Nestled in the Hule’ia National Wildlife Refuge surrounded by a bamboo forest and lush, tropical foliage, the double waterfall excursion begins roughly 15 minutes from Timbers Kauai. 

Just 15 to 20 minutes into the hike, adventurers reach the 25-foot Bamboo Waterfall, and just 10 minutes beyond that, the 75-foot Hule’ia Falls comes into view. At Hule’ia Falls, a rope ladder allows adventurers to climb behind the veil of the waterfall and experience a unique and powerful perspective of the rushing water. 

Climb behind the rushing waters of Hule’ia Falls.

After spending some time relishing Kauai’s natural beauty—or even taking a dip in the refreshing water—it’s just a 15- to 20-minute hike back to the starting point. Make sure you pack your camera or have your mobile phone teed up for amazing photographs.

The two-and-a-half hour tour includes snacks and refreshments provided by Timbers Kauai. Water shoes are also provided.
