Stash a copy of Kauai Trailblazer in your daypack. It lists dozens of places - some lesser known - to hike, paddle, bike, snorkel and surf. The "Best Of" listings are a quick reference to winner locations and activities.

Midwest Book Review
An outstanding guide for families and outdoor enthusiasts with an interest in hiking and exploring Kauai. If you're Kauai bound, begin with a thorough perusal of Kauai Trailblazer.
Virtual Bookcase
The essential guidebook for visiting Kauai. Contains all the information you will need to enjoy the island: what to bring, where to go, what to do. I explored the whole island and found myself discovering out of the way places that otther guidebooks didn't include. It is very current, clearly written, well indexed with easy to use maps. If you're going to Kauai, you MUST have this book to get the most out of your too short vacation.
