Support Your Park
The Ala Kahakai Trail Association (ATA) began as an interim organization in 2006 to become a registered non- profit organization registered in 2008. It is the supporting and overarching organization for the community management aspects of the Ala Kahakai Trail, which is 175 miles of dedicated cultural and heritage trail on Hawaii Island.
The Trail Association was established to ensure that the Ala Kahakai Trail is well connected to the community, that Hawaiian values and principles are in place and practiced, to foster partnerships and collaboration and to provide help and guidance for the work of managing and sustaining the trail in perpetuity. For more updates, visit Our Partners page under Management on the park home page.

Did You Know?
Did you know the coconut tree was an extremely important resource brought to Hawaii by the early Polynesians. It was a source of food and water, used for building homes and rope making, and was also a musical instrument. Cutting down the coconut grove of another was considered an act of war.
