A local recommended an excellent, unique â€” but extreme â€” hiking adventure:
Get used to the mud. Most of the time, itâ€™s easier just to go right through the middle while looking for submerged rocks and logs. If you do have hiking boots, itâ€™s best to avoid overtopping them.
Maybe too extreme, or too dirty, for me.
Whatâ€™s reassuring is that the 0.9 mile-long (1.5 km) tunnel is perfectly straight and you can see the light at the other end the whole way. It takes 20-30 minutes to reach that light. When you get there it is like a door onto another world.

It’s called Secret Tunnel to the North Shore in the The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook
There are actually a second. And a third tunnel. Rarely visited. Difficult to find.

Thanks to Andy Kass for posting these trip reports.
I think I’ll go lie on the beach instead.
