Er führt durch schönen Wald, vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten und es gibt oftmals Wildtiere zu sehen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als moderat einzustufen. Es gibt verschiedene Aktivitätsmöglichkeiten. Die Route ist das ganze Jahr über zugänglich.

As of 2/20/19 - the road leading to the trailhead is closed. Typically accessed from Homelani Cemetery, but entrance gate to Bog Trail is approx 12 miles in from Cemetery. The Bog Trail is almost exactly 1.0mi in length one-way and ends in a look-out. The Bog Trail winds through a misty and moisture-laden swamp, which is a feast of interesting multiple types of ferns (eg fiddle ferns) and entirely moss-clad trees/branches. Multiple Oha’i trees are found on the trail. In middle of mile-long trail is an open plateau with different plant life. Entire path is planked, but wet (expect to get shoewear soaked). A concern with this trail is its remoteness, which is actually part of its allure, limiting the number of us who can enjoy its beauty and novelty.

Plan on getting wet and be sure if your footing as it can get narrow and slippery. An amazing experience!

Typically accessed from Homelani Cemetery, but entrance gate to Bog Trail is approx 12 miles in from Cemetery. The Bog Trail is almost exactly 1.0mi in length and ends in a look-out. The Bog Trail winds through a misty and moisture-laden swamp, which is a feast of interesting multiple types of ferns (eg fiddle ferns) and entirely moss-clad trees/branches. Multiple Oha’i trees are found on the trail. In middle of mile-long trail is an open plateau with different plant life. Entire path is planked, but wet (expect to get shoewear soaked). Its certainly an interesting walk, worth the trip up. If you like the flora and experience, you’ll like Akala’i Swamp Trail on Kauai, which is the highest swamp in the US, and has similarities. First time I tried to reach the Bog Trail I ran up from the Homelani Cemetery, passed the Waikolu Lookout, entered the Kamakou Preserve but had to turn around at 11mi in due to hydration concerns. On advice from a local resident was told to consider a trailhead on Rt 450 across from One Ali’i Park II , just east of Kaunekakai. There is a gate there, but you can climb thru the pedestrian entry on left of gate. This entire access to the Bog Trail measured 7.2mi each direction, so my R/T was 16.4mi when including the Bog Trail itself ... a very significant reduction in distance to the Bog Trail gate. However, the first 3.0mi up from the trailhead had average grade of 11%, which I walked 2/3s of. After entering treeline, you’ll hike/run thru conifer forest, staying on main forest trail (avoid smaller offshoots) and pass a DLNR weather station on your right. Then, trail which has been heading north suddenly veers east and eventually joins the Molekai (actually Kamakou) Preserve Road onto which you turn right. Be aware that this alternative access to the Bog Trail is a strenuous one, taking 6;00hrs R/T with significant parts of it at running pace, that tested my endurance as much as the 22mi run from the Homelani Cemetery the week before. The fact that there is often drizzle, mist, and cool temps allow you to control sweating, fluid loss at/near Bog Trail. Do take windbreaker. The run back is entirely runnable but steep, so if knees are an issue you may have to walk parts. A concern with this trail is its remoteness, which is actually part of its allure, limiting the number of us who can enjoy its beauty and novelty.
