Hilo Arboretum Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"If you like trees, you will enjoy Hilo Arboretum. Hilo Arboretum’s broad lawns stretch out under a wide variety of non-native trees that, in years past, were being evaluated for their usefulness to Hawaii. It’s a good spot for the solo visitor or for a very small group but not for a large group or for a picnic. The arboretum is open from 7:45 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. Monday through Friday and is closed Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.

The arboretum occupies much of the block along the northeast side of Kilauea Avenue between Kawili and Lanikaula streets, but the only entrance you’re allowed to use is opposite the Division of Forestry and Wildlife’s office. If you’re interested in identifying the trees, stop in the office to pick up the laminated pages of the tree listing. Most of the trees are missing the number tags that correspond to the tree listing, but with the help of the little map that’s included, you can make some educated guesses at a tree’s identity."
