Waterfall Tour: Kohala Waterfalls Adventure
Vendor: Hawaii Forest & Trail Big Island of Hawaii
Category: Hiking
Location: Hawaii-Hawaii (The Big Island)
Ola i ka wai a ka opua - that tells us "there is life in the rain." Rain also gives us the resplendent countryside and plentiful waterfalls of Kohala. Nowhere in Hawaii is the importance and story of water more evident than here in the lands of Kamehameha. In its eternal cycle, water continues to shape a dramatic landscape of valleys, streams and cliffs. These same waters reveal the history and culture of Kohala.

This tour departs from Hawaii Forest & Trail Headquarters and Waikoloa Queen's Marketplace. Get ready for a day of fun!

- The tour begins with a wonderful drive of contrast and change from the dry-side resort area to the lush green country of Kohala

- Along the way you'll journey up the North Kona and Kohala coastlines over lava flows from Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea and the Kohala Mountains. Often from the shoreline you are able to see splashing spinner dolphins or in the winter months, breaching humpback whales

- You'll pass through the quaint plantation towns of Hawaii and Kapaau, site of the life-size statue of King Kamehameha I

- At the end of the road we pass through a locked gate onto private property, and the real fun begins, with a bumpy but short off-road drive on an old cane road

- Out of the van, you'll step back into the early 1900's, when plantation owners began construction of the Kohala Ditch Trail to bring much needed water to the sugar cane fields

- You'll delve into ancient Hawaiian history as well, visiting a former taro farming site just off the path. Several beautiful waterfalls grace the trail

- You can take a refreshing dip in the last pool we visit, and play under a refreshing cascade

- With stunning mountain panoramas, green valleys and pasturelands, and of course the abundant water, the Kohala Waterfalls Adventure is a fascinating way for young and old to experience Kohala's beauty
