Active Bee Swarms on Pali Trail
Bee hives and swarms have been observed in the vicinity of switchback 26 on the Pali (cliff) Trail. Additional hives may be along the trail. Hikers should be observant of their surroundings and exercise caution.
Things To Do
Access to Kalaupapa National Historical Park is very restricted. Access to the park will be denied to anyone that has not made prior arrangements and obtained necessary authorization.
The National Park Service does not offer any regularly scheduled interpretive programs or activities because of the restricted nature of visitation to the park. Persons wishing to access the park must prearrange their visit with Damien Tours (808.567.6171). Tours of the park are offered through a commercial service, owned and operated by a Kalaupapa resident.
The Kalaupapa Overlook from topside Molokai at Pala'au State Park offers wayside interpretive exhibits for visitor learning. There are additional wayside exhibits located throughout the park.
WARNING: There are no medical or dining facilities at Kalaupapa. The 3.5 mile trail to the park is extremely steep and challenging with uneven surfaces. Only very physically fit persons should attempt the trail.

The oldest building in the Kalaupapa Settlement is the Old Stone Church built in 1853. The thick masonry walls are made of lava rock with coral lime mortar. The structure is now being used as the National Park Service Ranger Station.
