Fodor's Review

Tucked away on the slopes of Mt. Kamakou, Molokai's highest peak, this 2,774-acre rain-forest preserve is a dazzling wonderland full of wet ohia (hardwood trees of the myrtle family, with red blossoms called lehua flowers) forests, rare bogs, and native trees and wildlife. Guided hikes, limited to eight people, are held one Saturday each month between March and October. Reserve well in advance. You can visit the park without a tour, but you need a good four-wheel-drive

vehicle (hard to find on the island), and it's not recommended. If you are determined to go it alone, The Nature Conservancy requests that you sign in at the office and get directions first. The office is at Molokai Industrial Park, about 3 miles west of Kaunakakai.
