Description

Ahupua'a O Kahana State Park is a popular park on the windward side of Oahu. The park is in one of the wettest valleys on the island, but the lush forests and views make up for it. The park is free to enter, and dogs are allowed on leash. There is camping at the park for a small fee. The park is a "living park" which means there are Hawaiian families that still live in the park. There are quite a few interesting cultural/archeological sites in the park including a temple, fishing shrines, stone buildings, and much more.

This trail is very steep, and can be dangerous when wet. Please be respectful and do not leave trash. Do not park along Trout Farm Road, as your car could get towed. Instead, park at Swanzy Beach Park. Show more
