I have hiked this trail many times, and I love every inch of it. It does get narrow in parts, and if you're afraid of heights, this section can be scary. I have never felt unsafe hiking this trail. It's a long hike and usually people don't hike it both ways, so pack it light and bring lots of water. There are water stations, but I wouldn't trust it. Most people hike the eleven miles one way and then camp out. I also recommend finding a house to rent on the island. There are a ton of great deals for renting and it is much more fun than a hotel. Take a look at Kauai Vacation Rentals on their FB page.
