The lush windward side of the Big Island of Hawaii offers many unique and inexpensive opportunities to absorb and enjoy nature and the beauty of the island. Along with the gorgeous setting, Kalopa offers hiking, camping by permit along with picnic tables, restrooms and drinking water. The trail loops through a canopied native Ohia Lehua forest. The park is also a collection of native ferns, shrubs and more. It's a favorite spot of native birds. The trail-head is located toward the rear of the parking lot. It is a 3/4 of a mile loop trail that is easy enough for an easy family afternoon hike. The area is open daily from dawn until dusk.
