Powerline Trail Complete 9/09
All My Condos in Kauai

Follow My Powerline Trail Blog

I revisited the Powerline Trail Sept, 2009. This trip I wanted to do the trail end-to-end. Both ends have merit and I will do the ends again but never end-to-end. The Powerline Trail from either end starts as an old utility road. After about 2 miles in the Powerline Trail is just that, a trail. The middle 3 miles however is a hog trail with tall 6’ grass and is wet. It’s hard to see where you are walking and you are going to get muddy. I just didn’t find that much to see or have fun moving through the grass. Thank goodness that Kauai has no snakes. This is the first trail that I would rate FORGET IT. There are too many other nice trails on Kauai. I would recommend either the Powerline South, or Powerline North ends that I have reviewed before. Both are a great trip.
