Directions from Kahului: On Hana Highway (360) drive 3.5 miles past Kailua Village going toward Keanae. At this point, there is a parking area with picnic shelters above the road.
Left trail is more of a hike than the right. The top is just a grassy area with not much of a look out. Some of the look outs and strange plants along the way were the best part. Very muddy after the loop.
This trail provides an opportunity to get out and stretch alone the road to Hana. There are geocaching opportunities as well. The trail is very easy, steps in some locations, but mostly a lot of beautiful trees and views. There is at least one smaller connecting trail, but we just went on the loop. Took less than 30 minutes. Great little walk in the woods.
There is a main trail, but there is also a deviation towards the river which I enjoy goingto. at the end of that is a large pool which can be rather deep in some spots. There is never anyone else there whenever I go. it's a very private spot, right off a well worn path.
