We're just back from our second visit to Kauai and the Big Island of Hawaii after a 7 year absence. We chose the Kauai Trailblazer book since it covers so many hikes which my wife and I do to unwind. What we found this time were a whole lot of places a few paces off the standard tourist track. Their take on Kauai is different from all the other guides since it mainly lists all the freebie adventure possibilities. Getting on the trails and snorkeling costs zero and since they put alot of detail in their directions like round trip distance and difficulty it saved us precious vacation time. We got alot of mileage out of it.

The writing is clear and the color section spectacular. We didn't notice the Best Of section at first but once we got there we referred to it constantly. Their picks on where to snorkel in certain areas were the BEST and even knowing where to enter the water and check for outgoing currents was valuable. A super purchase for a much needed vacation in paradise.

My husband and I went to Kauai for the first time on our Honeymoon. This book was a great reference. We love adventure and were able to find all kinds of activities and navigate the island in our rental car. We would have missed out on so much of the island without this book.

My wife and I spent two wonderful weeks on Kauai, and this book allowed us to skip the "what is there to do here" step. Instead of fumbling around and wasting a few precious days trying to figure it out once we got here, we read through the Kauai Trailblazer and set our plans in motion. A great book for first-timers (like us)!

We found Kauai to be the most beautiful island of all. This guide is insightful, lively and contains all the necessary trail information, very clear and organized with full page maps that kept us oriented. It made itinerary planning a cinch and we devoted a half day to hiking every day. Everything was just as they described. Most books don't point out the possible dangers out in the water and along the trails. This one prepares you for them all.

The guide is subdivided into geographic areas and the stops list all the activities possible - just like the title says - hikes, snorkels, bike rides, kayaking, surfing - you choose. Each area has its own personality and the authors go into detail characterizing each. We knew the North Shore was for us just looking at the pictures.

Our trip was a huge success.

I really enjoyed this book. Very helpful in finding the hikes I was interested in. Strongly recommend it for someone interested in doing things off the beaten path.

We visited some of the most beautiful sights in Kauai thanks to the descriptions and instructions in this book. Every detail is included in the book. I'm so glad I bought it before our trip. If you plan to hike, bike, snorkel, or kayak I highly recommend ordering a copy.

This is an indispensable resource if you're headed to Kaua'i (which is the coolest place I've ever been) About 75% of Kaua'i is inaccessible via roads, so if you want to see it, you'll be hiking/flying/sailing/snorkeling. Kaua'i Trailblazer is a must.

I also really like The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook.
I haven't left yet but feel that this book includes lots of great information if you are planning on getting out and exploring the island.
It includes a list of all trailheads on the Island and great info on how to get there, etc..
