An extremely easy walking trail that showcases native endemic vegetation & views of Waimea Canyon. Waterfalls visible. Great little pit stop if you're short on time &/or have children & can't do a long, strenuous hike. Wonderful picnic area.

Iliau, an endemic plant to Kaua'i's westside, grows along the path -- hence the name: Iliau Nature Loop -- is located in Waimea Canyon State Park. Not far after mile marker 8. It has the same trailhead as Kukui Trail.

Native vegetation are identified in signs along the path. There are excellent views of Waimea & Waialae Canyons. Waterfalls visible in the distance (pending cloud coverage). Great for young kids &/or sightseeing in a hurry. There's a small covered picnic area that makes a wonderful quiet spot to relax.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
