Hosmer Grove Haleakala National Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Hosmer Grove is an exotic botanical grove at 6,800 feet. It is 3,500 feet below the summit of Haleakala. In 1910, Ralph Hosmer, Hawaii ’s first territorial forester, planted this grove with introduced trees from around the world.
He planted spruce, juniper and fir from the United States mainland, cedar and sugi pine from Japan, and eucalypti from Australia. The self-guided nature trail is an easy meandering stroll through the alien forest and continues through a native forest. The grove includes a picnic area and campground."
