I saw this spider hiking in Kauai. It was pretty big and had a really big spider web, any idea what it is?

Orbweaver from Hawaii

Hi Adam,
This is an Orbweaver in the family Araneidae.  We posted a photo of this member of the genus
Argiopeonce before, but we never determined a species identification.  They are not considered dangerous, though large specimens might bite if carelessly handled.
