  • Mauka-Makai Trail From Visitor Center to 'Ai'opio Fishtrap Closed Aug 11-22nd

    Due to the unforeseen weather conditions of Hurricane Iselle, the trail maintenance project will be extended an additional week from Aug 18-22nd. Please contact the Park Visitor Center at (808) 326-9057 for additional information.


Walk along the footpaths used by Hawaiian people years ago. Take the Mamalahoa Trail and imagine what it would be like to lead your donkeys laden with produce on your way to the market. Take a portion of the Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail past heiau and house platforms that remain from long ago. The more recent Ala Hele Ike Trail will lead you from the visitor center to Honokohau Beach, passing native plants and stone walls and a corral that remains from the ranching days of the past as you hike along the trail.

konane game board with lava and coral 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.
