Lodging, picnicking and easy family nature hike (0.7-mile loop trail) in a native 'ohi'a forest at a 2000-foot elevation. Trail passes through the beginnings of an arboretum of the Island's native plants. Additional trails in the adjoining forest reserve, including a 2-mile horse loop trail.

No one around. Lush, dense rainforest. Trails in pretty good shape with good signs (although AllTrails app was still key at times). We didn't do the route shown on this page, but did a different 2 mile loop.

Easy, yet so beautiful and peaceful. If it's wet, be careful as you can slip and fall.

Beautiful foliage, lush and wild. Easy trail. Very shaded and damp on this day

Forest trails are all shade, great for mid day hike when other trails are to hot.

Wild coffee, passion fruit, stink horn mushrooms can seen here.

Great hike with kids. We went with a 6 & 2 year old and it was just the right length. Interactive trail, with the info pamphlet at the start that talks about the forest. My 6 year old enjoyed scouting the white tree markings that are trail indicators. Lots of birds, lush surroundings, cooler temps, beautiful park, bring a picnic and make a day of it. The trail was a little muddy and there are mosquitoes, but neither were too bothersome.
