Enjoy an invigorating hike to the summit of Nounou Mountain and then quench your thirst with a well-deserved beverage at the Kauai Beer Company. The mountain is known as the Sleeping Giant because from afar, it looks like an enormous human figure is lying across its top. While hiking the mountain’s iconic East Trail, you will learn the legend of the giant at the summit and behold some of the most gorgeous scenery on Kauai. Although the hike isn’t quite four miles round-trip, there will be plenty to see, as the trail winds through a guava and ironwood forest. The higher you hike, the more spectacular the views, which will stretch all the way to sea. During stops along the way, the guide will describe the indigenous flora and fauna and point out the magnificent sights below. And what better place to recall the highlights than over a freshly brewed Hawaiian beer at a microbrewery in Lihue?
