The Alakaʻi is a primeval habitat made accessible by boardwalks. The Alakaʻi, 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. Kokeʻe/West side, very strenuous/7 miles. Leader: Bob Nishek, 346-0476
