This trail starts off Halemanu Rd, along from the Cliff and Canyon Trails. A gentle recreational nature hike, the 1.2-mile trip passes through a native forest of koa and ohia trees, which provide habitat for endemic birds. The trail ends near YWCA Camp Sloggett, about 0.5 miles from Kokeʻe Lodge.
One common trailside plant is banana poka, a member of the passion-fruit family and a serious invasive pest. It has pretty pink flowers, but it drapes the forest with its vines and chokes out less-aggressive native plants. You might just sight native birds like the iʻiwi, apapane, ʻelepaio and ʻamakihi.
