Little kids and Kauai

Up until a week ago my husband and I were going to spend a quiet week in Kauai but then I invited some friends to join us who have 3 little guys (8,5,3) so although we'll still do some of the things we planned I need to get some kid friendly things on the list. We'd like to hike with them so we're looking for 3-4 milers round trip. Recommendations? Donna

"Good Areas to Hike with Kids?" is a question you'll find on the right.

I looked there and the only answer I found was if they were going to put the kids in a backpack not really what I was looking for.

Check out my trip report blog at http://kauaiflamingos.blogspot.com - there's a tab called Kauai Activities with Kids and I list a few hikes.

If you read the Good Areas to Hike with Kids thread carefully, you'll see that most of the hikes on the island are described, not just for people carrying babies but for all hikers. KauaiHiker is a great local resource who frequently hikes with his young (4? 6?) daughter.

Berry Flat Trail in Kokee is one I have bookmarked for our next trip (when our oldest - now 3.5 - will be forced to move under his own steam because he is getting too darn big to carry).

This is a good website with trail descriptions - obviously easy to moderate hikes will be best for little ones: http://www.kauaiexplorer.com/hiking_kauai/

Here's the link to trail descriptions in Kokee/Waimea. http://www.kokee.org/kokee-state-park/trails

Also, a great guidebook for families is Kauai Underground by Lenore Horowitz.

This is one of my favorite hikes to take the kids on.

That's quite a change from "quite week" with the hubby.

I say hire a babysitter and go out as couples. Order pizza and let the kids catch frogs.
