The Path

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Ke Ala Hele Makalae. Coconut Coasters LLC is proud to offer the following information, provided to us by the Kauai Path project. The Friends of the Path kindly remind you to be safe and respectful while enjoying Ke Ala Hele Makalae, the path that goes by the coast. Please 'kokua' by sharing and practicing the following pathway etiquette recommendations:

  • Be Courteous - All path users should be respectful of other users regardless of their mode of travel, speed, or skill level.
  • Keep Path Clear - Use no more than one-half of the path when in a group.
  • Be Predictable - Travel in a consistent manner. Look behind you before changing position on the path.
  • Keep Right - Stay to the right of the path except when passing. Move back or to the right once safely
  • Respect Private Property - Stay on designated paths or roadways. Avoid shortcutting switchbacks.
  • Signal When Passing - Give a clear warning by voice, bell, or horn before passing.
  • Yield to Slower Traffic - Cyclists yield to pedestrians; wheels yield to heels.
  • Respect the Path And 'Aina (Land) - Keep litter in trash receptacles; observe and protect wildlife from a distance.

Kauai Path is a community organization with the vision of Kauai residents working together to preserve, protect, and extend access island-wide through the design, implementation, and stewardship of non-vehicular paths.
