Kauai, 4 mile out & back trail, medium difficulty.
Elevation gain: 1,100ft (from 200 - 1,300ft)
Nounou Mountain rises from the leeward (Eastern) lands of Kauai. Local legend tells of a giant who feasted so much at a party in his honor that he laid down for a nap and never awoke, and since the hike up East Nounou Mountain trail takes you straight over his head and up his nose, you might want to cross you fingers that he doesn't wake up while you're around.
This is a nice little hike if you're in the area, and a great way of sampling some of Kauai's exotic plantlife and bird population.
