Ke'anae Arboretum Professional Review and Guide
"This is an easy stroll along a stream through a garden of trees and flowers from all over the tropical world. The trail meanders gently up a series of broad terraces originally built by native Hawaiians for growing taro. The lower portion is planted with exotic trees, while the upper end is devoted to plants introduced and used by the ancient Polynesians.Go past the gate and down the broad asphalt path lined with the ubiquitous red and white impatiens that thrive in damp places all over Hawai’i. The Pi’ina’au Stream is noisy but invisible at first, then appears from behind a dense patch of ginger. You will follow it the rest of the way. As the ground levels out a wide lawn begins, dotted with clumps of palms and other tropical trees with identifying labels."
