At 6,380 feet, Palikū is on the east end of the Wilderness valley at the base of a rain forest cliff. The campsite is reached starting at the summit via a strenuous 9.3 mile (15km) hike on the Sliding Sands Trail or 10.4m on Halemauʻu Trail. Clouds and fog often roll over the top of the cliffs behind Palikū, and rain is common. The extra moisture makes this spot exceptionally cool and lush.
