This easy, flat walk takes you where the air is cool, the foliage lush, and the birds plentiful. It doesn’t go anywhere in particular, simply from one spot on the road through Koke’e State Park to another, but in the past its main attraction was a grove of introduced Methley plum trees whose small, tart fruits were eagerly harvested in summer. The trees are still there, but have not been producing much in recent years, so don’t be disappointed if you don’t find any. (You can probably find some strawberries and blackberries instead.) If you prefer your hike to end with a little more excitement, you can add a 0.5-mile walk to the spectacular Kalalau Lookout.
