Once you are equipped with the specialized zipline equipment, your trained guides lead you on a short hike to the first zipline.
With a gradually sloping hill falling away from the take-off of the first zipline, you are able to ease into the experience. On the second line, you zip off of a shear hillside, where the ground quickly drops away. This line crosses a different valley than the first zipline, and this second valley is covered in native Hawaiian Uluhe fern—which is a vibrant green color and looks spectacular in photos.
Leap into the air on the third zipline which has an even quicker drop off. Look down and see the unmistakable light green leaves of the Kukui, Hawaii's state tree, below you. The lush beauty of Kauai astounds you at every turn.
On the fourth zipline the speed is taken up a notch. While racing along the line, views of the Pacific Ocean begin to appear in the distance. This line lands on the tail end of a ridge where two valleys converge.
Fly over a third valley, not previously crossed on the zipline tour, on the 5th line. The longest line of the tour, the new valley stretches out in a broad sweep on the mountain side, while rapidly dropping away on the ocean side.
