Just north of Waimea Canyon State Park, Koke’e State Park is a great park for hiking.
There are seven major hiking trails in Koke’e State Park:
Alakai Swamp Trail
Kawaikoi Stream Trail
Nuʻalolo Cliffs Trail
Poomau Canyon Lookout Trail
Along the way, hikers can expect to see lush, native vegetation, views of the ocean, and native birds. Kalalau Valley can also be seen from the park – this was the backdrop for Jack London’s short story Koʻolau the Leper.
Stop by the Koke’e Natural History Museum for current trail information and maps.
