Ahihi-Kinau Natural Area Reserve Southern Trail

Ahihi-Kinau Natural Area Reserve: Southern Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Cape Kinau is an enormous land mass formed by a 1790 lava flow from the southwest slopes of Haleakala. The desolate area has been preserved as the Ahihi-Kinau Natural Area Reserve. The surreal landscape is covered in fields of rough, unstable black lava rock with inland ponds.

The coastline has boulder-lined beaches with endless tidepools. The Southern Trail leads through kiawe forests to the shores of La Perouse Bay. The stunning cobalt blue waters in the bay are as clear and rich as the mind can imagine. The snorkeling here is among the best on the island."

Thought I would try this hike while in the area, but upon arrival at the park, I found a sign stating "Area Closed Aug. 1, 2008 - July 31, 2010".
