People and Land of Kahuku - Guided Hike

People and Land of Kahuku is a moderate two-mile, three-hour guided hike that loops through varied landscapes to explore the human history of Kahuku. Emerging native forests, pastures, lava fields, and other sites hold clues about ways people lived and worked on the vast Kahuku lands – from the earliest Hawaiians, through generations of ranching families, to the current staff and volunteers of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park.

Learn about the powerful natural forces at work here and how people have adapted to, shaped, and restored this land.
The guided hike is offered April 15, May 20 and June 17 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
