As pointed out by several sites describing this trail, OFFICIAL PERMISSION is absolutely required from Kamehameha Schools/ Bishop Estate who owns the land through which you access this trail. Recently there has been a growing number of visitors trespassing through the locked gate, despite signs. Because of liability concerns, fears of danger to the delicate ecology of the area, and increasing vandalism, some quite serious, there currently is a paid guard there who will take photos of anyone approaching, and their cars, inform them that there is a process to acquire permission, and of course turn them away if they don't have any. Btw---very few, aparently, are granted permission to access this trail. There are other trails that lead to the summit of Mt. Hualalai, but they are also accessed through KSBE property.Show more
