Description:

One of Kauai's most stunning natural features is the Waimea Canyon. Being ten miles long and over half a mile deep this is the largest canyon in the Pacific. The valley gorges, craggy outface, and rugged landscape makes it a must-see destination that's great for photos. Mark Twain once found this canyon to be grand enough to comment on after it made a very deep impression on him, he called it the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific".

A variet of tours are offered in and around the canyon. Learn the history that made it, how rains cascading down from Mount Wai'ale'ale's summit slowly carved the colorful layers of rock into the great geological feature seen today. Located within Kokee state park, which includes 45 miles of trails worth hiking, this canyon is a great location to put on the list when visiting Hawaii. Remember that trails are rated by difficulty and should be researched before being taken on. You'll find trails that are good for hikers of all skill level.

The main access road is the Walmea Canyon Drive and has several exotic lookout points. A jacket is recommended for the cooler temperatures. Don't forget the gas because there is no service station in this area, and no one wants to get stuck.
