It's close

We followed the directions to get to the trail. Came to a government controlled area with no access to continue. Security guard also told us that all hiking and trails were closed inside the area. Complete bust. He said there were some trails around there but wouldn't recommend leaving your car there.

The Palehua-Palikea hike is what Stuart Ball refers to in his book, as one of the best trails on the island. We completed the hike in the early morning (sunrise), in the clouds and rain, and I'd have to agree that it was still one of the best, rain and all.

However, this is not a very accessible hike, as it is no longer owned by the Nature Conservancy, and was sold back to the state. However, it is maintained by those who live on the property, and volunteers.

They do community hikes, on the 1st weekend of the month. So if you want to do it, you must get a hold of the Palehua Ranger. He is awesome, and will give you a good understanding of the area, along with some history, etc.
