I will be traveling to Kauai in May and want to camp a night before hiking Kalalau. Haena seems to be the closest location. Would we need to drive to the trail head in the morning or is it walking distance? Since it is a weekend night Hanalei is another option. It is near stores/restaurants which could be nice. How do the campsites compare? How is the drive from Hanalei to the trail? Are there any shuttle services? I read that leaving your car overnight at the trailhead can be dangerous.
Any advice is appreciated.
