Anyone on Kauai?

Aloha,
I just moved to the Kapaa area and was wondering if anyone on the forum lived here as well. I'm going crazy wanting to take my Jeep out!!

Hi Matt,
I did get a chance to go up to the end of Kuamoo Road a few weeks ago on a dry day. Pretty fun ride and really beautiful views! I'm definitely interested in trying out other places. Maybe we can get a ride together.
Great hearing from you,
Randy

^I guess the dirt's always browner on the other side of the fence. I have to admit that Moab is pretty special as are many other mainland places, but Hawaii is pretty special too. We could swap Jeeps by mine won't let anybody else drive him. Aloha!

Hey. Newb to Hawaii. Here getting married on Tuesday and had to leave my jeep at the home sadly. We are considering renting a jeep while we are here for a day sometime within the next 9 days. Anyone have a suggestion of where and what to do? Have 6 others with me and some don't like wheeling. Have to get two jeeps.

Congrats on getting married! I see lots of people doing some crazy stuff with rental jeeps. I would certainly advise you to opt for the insurance although if your caught offroad that will void any policy anyway. Since I am new to the island I will defer any answers on where/when/if to go on other jeepers with more knowledge than I have. I will say from experience that the soft sand will eat a rental/Sahara with street tires really quick. Air down and momentum is your friend!
I have no problems with my Rubicon now though!
If you are looking for some good "beach spots" to take the jeep and hang out PM me and I can give you some spots..

Awesome. Thanks for the reply! Yea I've seen some less than capable sahara's rocking the Bridgestones haha. We live on the east coast at the beach so I am familiar with beach sand driving luckily. If they decide to go to the beach or ride with someone I will deff pm you. Thanks again.

Head up to wailua if you get a chance. Theres a place at the end of kuamo'o road we call Loop Road. When you reach the spot where the water crosses over the road you'll know your there. There are numerous trails that stem off that one main little trail but those Are mostly hunting trails. I've taken my jeep there when it was stock before and i've seen lots of rentals there.
Oh and if you like swimming in cool mountain water you'll like it there.

Watch out for mountain pigs haha. There are a lot around the island especially up in the mountains.

An absolute must do? Have a good time and soak up the views.

I've seen the other trails that run off of the main "Loop road"trail and I wondered where they went. I figured they were probably for hunting. I wasn't sure if it was kapu to take these trails so I just always stay on the main trail. Some of them look like they might be cool trails and would have cool views.

They are awesome trails! While hunters do use them you can try them out. Just be careful of the hunters. Most of them are dead ends with little to no room to turn around.

Hopefully when work starts to slow down I'll have a little more free time to take an off road cruise.
