About as beautiful as it gets for living education, this garden offers a pleasant overview of native botany and the ahupuaʻa (land division) system of management of ancient Hawaiʻi. The valley was gifted to the National Tropical Botanical Garden by the Wichman family, and is run by one of its descendants, Chipper Wichman, a passionate preservationist and philanthropist. Occasional service projects allow a glimpse into the 985-acre preserve for native ecosystem restoration.

Guided tours are available, but with a self-guided version you can roam at your own pace on a short-but-sweet 0.75-mile loop trail. Perfect for bringing a journal or camera; benches allow for meditative stops. To get here, turn inland just before the stream that marks the boundary of Haʻena State Park.
