Hike Distance?

Terrain: Hardy family, approximately 1 mile round trip, recommend non-slip footware, trail can be slippery when wet.


Start your adventure at Kee Beach and proceed up the Kalalau Trail which is one of the most beautiful and famous trails in the world. Because this is such a popular hike you may have to wait for a parking space. Although your prize will be found in 1/2 mile or less we would recommend that you pack a lunch and plan to continue your hike another 1 1/2 miles to Hanakapiai Beach if you have the time.

Approximately 1/4 mile on the Kalalau Trail you should pass a trickling waterfall on your left which may or may not be trickling depending on the rainfall. You will come to a breathtaking ocean view on your right. Proceed to 6 log steps. From the top of the 6th step take 40 paces. This will take you thru the 1st switchback (hairpin turn) and on the left you will find a V-shaped tree. Your prize lies under the tree to the right, next to the V-shaped tree under some rocks.

Please be discreet as this is such a well traveled path and secure back under the rocks so that the box doesn't wash away in a heavy rain.

Kee Beach is a nice respite at the return of your hike and a popular sunset spot.

We can only visit every 2 years since we live VERY far away so it would be great if you can keep us updated as to the condition of the box.
