One of the more popular Kalalau Trail adventures is to hike 2 miles in to Hanakapiai Beach. It's a popular stoping point for good reason. You can continue on for the rest of the 9-mile hike (11 miles total) or go inland 2 miles to the Hanakapiai Falls but many stop here in wonder.
What we were absolutely stunned speechless by, were the hundreds of cairns that stood proudly with hope, on the rocks before the beach itself.
How many hands had made many a cairn and wished their hopes came true?
