What would I find fun about an adventure in a swamp?

As it turns out, quite a lot. The Alakai Swamp Trail is a true aloha hiking adventure full of eye candy for nature lovers. Its namesake “swamp” isn’t a true swamp, but a misty high elevation native rainforest and bog system near the plateau of Kauai’s perpetually damp Mount Waialeale. The 8-mile roundtrip trail (which includes a brief connecting hike on the Pihea Trail) offers multiple unforgettable lookouts and birds galore. Both trails are part of the Na Ala Hele Trail and Access System, a collection of state-managed treks found throughout the Islands.
