Wednesday, November 1 Sierra Club Hike Alaka’i Swamp Boardwalk

The Alaka’i is a primeval habitat made accessible by boardwalks. The Alaka’i, one of the world’s wettest spots, is not a swamp but a mountain rain forest rising 4,500 feet above the Pacific. A variety of native plants and birds can be seen only on this trail. Very strenuous, 7 miles.
