Kokee State Park

Search Lihue Hawaii

This state park in Kauai Island has recently been expanded with the construction of a boardwalk over Alakai Swamp. The boardwalk trailhead off Mohini Rd eliminates the need to slog through muck and mire for a glimpse of primordial tropical wilderness.

The dwindling rain forest and swamp is host to honeycreepers and unique Hawaiian birds, stands of ohia trees, native ferns and carnivorous plants. But it is also an area of fog, mist and rain.

Plans call for completion of an additional 1.5 miles of boardwalk to link the swamp trail to the Pihea Trail. The boardwalk is also popular with hunters of wild pigs that cause much destruction in the rain forest.

The forest is above 4,000 feet and has trails into some of Kauai Island's most remote areas. Contact Div of State Parks for info about trail conditions.
