Waihou Spring Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Waihou Spring Trail is above the up-country town of Makawao in the Waihou Spring Forest Reserve. The beautiful reserve borders the state-run tree experimentation project planted in the 1920s. The trail begins on the tree plantation road and loops through a forest of Monterey cypress, pines, eucalypti and koa. A side path leads to an overlook and descends into Kailua Gulch at an enclosed, boulder-strewn canyon with numerous caves. Old water diversion tunnels are cut into the face of the surrounding cliffs."
