hiking Waimea Canyon, Hawaii with kids

The most popular way to see the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific” is Canyon Trail, 3.6mi (5.8km) with a short side trip on Cliff Trail to the lookout.

The goal is Waipoo Falls where Kokee Stream drops into the canyon.

I thought the “moderate difficulty” trail might be a bit much for the kids, but there is so much to do and see, they were entertained throughout.

Our only problem was worrying about any of them falling hundreds of feet off the edge of the cliff.

In the end, they all made it back to the trailhead, almost under their own steam.
