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.

Konane board with lava and coral pebble game pieces

Did you know the game of Konane is similar to checkers in the way the pieces are moved on the game board and similar to chess in that the winner is the player who is able to make the final move. Chiefs would sometimes use the game to settle disputes.
