Truly beautiful hike, and the facilities are well maintained. Recommend grabbing food from the nearby village and having a picnic here. Be careful around the cliff edges as the paths are very narrow in some areas. They say dogs aren't allowed but I always see people walking their dogs here - just clean up after them and you shouldn't have problems.

This is a beautiful public park. It has safe camping grounds and cabins. They also have bathrooms and water. There is free parking. For visitors from off island I recommend bringing bug repellent, and a plastic bag for your muddy shoes. Even though is a little muddy still a beautiful hiking or picnic are. You also need permit to camp as well as rent the cabins. I even saw someone get married there. We also get a fern called Palapalai but you do need a permit to pick them. You can go to parks and recs and it's free!

Wonderful piece of lovingly cared for remnant forest. Native birds (and introduced ones) are plentiful. The interpretive trail guides are subpar, but overall a good hike through what this side of the island SHOULD look like.

Quiet place, camping permit required. Sheltered with solid concrete floor. Cold shower and toilet available, bbq also available. It’s located up in the mountain, not close to town, but quiet and a few hiking routes available.
