Lapakahi State Historical Park Trail is a 0.9 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Hawi, HI that offers scenic views and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round.
This is a great little hike for the kids to take a step back into Hawaiian history. I will be going again soon and take a bit longer to explore the surrounding area.
Beautiful trail, clearly defined and a fairly easy hike. Great views of the white lava rocks lining the beach as well as visible ruins of the old historical Hawaiian native village (complete with still standing grass huts "PILI"). A nice dry setting for the most part with lots of wildlife in and around the water, and plenty of scenic views!
Gorgeous dry climate setting on the Kohala coast, a historically noteworthy ancient Hawaiian village site, with only ruins now remaining. A charming replicated PILI (a Hawaiian native grass) hut at the trail head where you can shoot some fun pictures of youselves with it and the beautiful coast view in the background. Hot, dry and sunny, so have your hats, sunscreen and lots of water ready!
