Kaua'i Path - advocates for access

Ke Ala Hele Makalae, The Path that goes by the Coast, is the name that has been given to the Kauai Path; a multi-use trail system envisioned to connect Lihue and Anahola.

This six phase project is close to completing Phase II. With nearly seven miles completed, the first two and a half miles in Lydgate Park, many ask where did the money come from? The primary source of funding is 80%, from the Federal Highway Administration specifically earmarked for transportation alternatives, such as this multi-use path.

The path has been designed with public input for all parts of the project, phase by phase.

This project will help protect public access to the coast for generations, as well as providing an alternative transportation resource

A non-profit advocacy organization, the Kaua'i Path, has been formed to gather community support, and to establish and implement access to Kauai's mauka and makai recreational resources, and encourage alternative modes of transportation.

It is hoped that this project will be enjoyed by many visitors as well as found useful by residents.

Conservation of Kauai's coast and heritage are top priorities of non profit, Kauai Path.
