Start your trail on the dirt road entering into a forest covered with dense bamboo trees and reach the footpath. At first, you need to cross a small river to enter into a tropical forest of mosses, ferns and orchids. A watchful trek on the muddy road through the forest will lead you to an open grass meadow from where the road gets narrower and the canopies become thicker. The forest becomes dark with tall bamboo trees growing. You may also need to stoop in order to pass the low lying branches. The trail broadens as it passes through the dense forest of bamboo trees, Hau trees and Uluhe ferns.
After walking for another 1 mile through the forest, you would come across a second stream, which you need to cross to reach an open field on the banks of the river Hanalei. You will get to see a complete picture of the river with the green mountains and valleys. The river is not suitable for swimming so do not take risks. You can also go for an unofficial hike beyond it following the Pig Hunting Trails to explore the valley.
