Need to Know

Bring walking sticks if it’s been raining.

Description

Kalepa Ridge Trail starts at Kalalau Lookout. There is a small gate at the base of the fence to the left of the Lookout. Certain parts get pretty steep and if it’s been raining it can be really slippery. Advise to bring walking sticks for extra traction.

Although there are no signs for it, the path is easily visible. Trail is a mile out and a mile back. Brings great views and the occasional mountain goat herd or two. Trail has some brush along the path, to avoid legs getting small cuts, I advise bringing long pants.
