This patch of hills and valleys above Honolulu was almost completely denuded by agricultural uses before it was reclaimed. Now a crazy mix of trees from all over the world makes a fascinating and beautiful setting for a hike. Along the trail you’ll find interpretive panels about the history, archaeology, and ecology of the area, as well as an area of plants used by the original Polynesians. You might be able to pick up a free booklet at the nature center that includes a map of the trail and descriptions of some of the things you’ll see on your walk. The markers along the trail, which at one time corresponded with descriptions on the map, have not been maintained, and the brochure describes the route in a counter-clockwise direction, opposite the way it’s described in this guide, but the booklet is full of interesting and useful information.
