Past the old plantation town of Paauilo, at a cool elevation of 2,000 feet, lies this sweet 100-acre state park. There's a lush forested area with picnic tables and restrooms, and an easy ¾-mile loop trail with additional paths in the adjacent forest reserve. Small signs identify some of the plants. Three campground areas and four cabins can be reserved online.
