Eerie White Road Hike

$10.00$100.00

If I were to have to pick a list of the top five hikes I’ve done in my life, the White Road Hike in Kamuela, Hawaii would be on that list. Although this hike isn’t legal, it’s definitely worth the risk. The first few hundred yards begin on property owned by the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR). The land is used for maintaining a public water system. Being caught on this property can result in a moderate fine for trespassing. However, once a person is past the DLNR restricted land it turns into the Kohala Forest Preserve.

The Kohala Forest Preserve a dense tropical jungle with beautiful species of plants and flowers. Part of the White Road trail traverses through the Kohala Ditch System. This ditch system was constructed in the early 1900’s as a way to deliver water from the rainy parts of the island to the sugar cane fields. As the trail wanders through the old ditch system and Kohala Forest, the trail suddenly opens up to cliffs that range from a few thousand feet. However, because of the high elevation of this trail, fog frequently obstructs the view.

This shot was taken along the White Road Hike before the trail opens up into the lush tropical valleys. The portion of the white road hike is right along the Kohala Ditch system but the fog is so thick that the view is completely covered by fog just several yards ahead. The fog brings adds a dark eerie feel to the hike. The way the tree hangs in the foreground adds a little bit of even more mystery. If you ever get a chance to explore this trail, please do so. However, I don’t recommend or condone trespassing along this private property.
