Our guide was excellent!


Hiking Tour at Kohala Waterfalls

For an all-around Hawaiian adventure, immerse yourself in Kohala; a place of old sugar plantations, ancient legends and extraordinary natural beauty. Come with us into the heart of the North Kohala countryside, with its stunning mountain panoramas, green valleys and pasturelands, and of course abundant streams, waterfalls and pools, the Kohala Waterfall Adventure Hike is a fascinating way for all ages to experience Kohala's "story of water" and great fun for families!

The Drive

Your tour begins with a scenic drive through the lush, green countryside. Pass through the quaint plantation towns of Hawi and Kapaau, site of the life-size statue of King Kamehameha the First. At the end of the road, stop at the historic Kohala Mule Station for one of Hawaii's most spectacular coastline views. The real fun begins with a bumpy but short four-wheel drive on an old cane road over private ranchland to our trailhead.

The Hike

Once out of the van, you'll feel as if you've stepped back into the early 1900s, when plantation owners there began construction of the Kohala Ditch Trail to bring much needed water to the sugar cane fields. Along the 2 mile loop trail We cross two streams, discover seven waterfalls and traverse three historic bridges while exploring ancient farming terraces and the famous Kohala Ditch. Easy walks, gorgeous countryside views and a chance to cool off with a swim in a mountain stream make this the ideal family adventure.
