The Best Hike In Hawaii Might Be The Awaawapuhi Trail on Kauai

"This is the most unreal view I've seen on a hike," according to David Chatsuthiphan, which is saying a lot considering Chatsuthiphan runs the popular blog Unreal Hawaii, which is devoted entirely to unreal views and hikes.

The Awaawapuhi Trail on Kauai is, at the outset, an unassuming hike. After three miles of intermediate hiking, however, perseverance and patience pay off. "The view at the end of this hike," Chatsuthiphan says, "is one of the most breathtaking I've seen in Hawaii."

Kauai is famous for its Na Pali Coast, and most tourists take a boat tour to see the views from the ocean. That's all well and good, according to Chatsuthiphan, but "this trail puts you right on top of one of those spires of the Na Pali." Pretty hard to beat.
