This project is the culmination of over a decade of effort to create this one-of-a kind nature trail showcasing Hawai‘i Island’s high-elevation wet forests and unique kīpuka geology. The construction project will create a compostable restroom with four stalls, a paved parking area for accessible vehicles, tour vans, and other vehicles, a tree canopy viewing deck, and interpretive signage along the trail.

Updates and information about the trail and construction progress can be found online.
