HIKING TRAILS
KANEPUU PRESERVE - SELF GUIDED TRAIL
THE NATURE CONSERVANCY OF HAWAII

(Northwest Lanai)
Located 6 miles northwest of Lanai City, on the island's western plateau.
The Nature Conservancy's literature states: The Kanepuu trail is designed to increase the awareness and appreciation of the dry forest of Kanepuu, one of the last remaining examples of the type of forest that once covered the dry lowlands of all the main Hawaiian Islands. The trail has eight stations with interpretive signs that describe a particular feature of natural or cultural significance in the preserve. Most of the signs feature beautiful illustrations by Lanai artist Wendell Kahoohalahala. The short trail, which takes about 10 - 15 minutes to walk, is easily accessible off the main road out to Keahikawelo (Garden of the Gods). For more information, please call the Nature Conservancy's Honolulu office at (808) 537-4508 or visit their site.

MUNRO TRAIL
(Central Lanai)
Trailhead: Lanai Cemetery (outside of Lanai City, past the Lodge at Koele)
Approx. 16 miles round trip (all day challenging hike). Can be accessed on foot, by bike and by 4-WD. Caution: Slippery and treacherous when wet.
The scenic Lanaihale (Munro) Trail, winds its way among mountain peaks and gorges for more than five miles. Neat rows of pine trees, planted by New Zealand naturalist and visionary George Munro, survive the wind and rain which frequent these heights. The trail climbs Lanaihale, the highest spot on the island (3,370 feet) and then transverses the top of the mountain, affording breathtaking 360 degree views on a clear day of plunging canyons and six islands - Lanai, Maui, Molokai, Kahoolawe, Hawaii and Oahu.
