Hao Street Trail

Go up Kaloko Mauka Drive to the third Hao Street intersection, turn left, and the trail starts on your right, just a short distance down. It connects to the trails at Makahi Street, further uphill, and features numerous native plants.
For example, mamaki, which is familiar to most people because it's used for medicinal tea.

There are numerous plantings of an extremely endangered plant, kokia, also known as hau hele 'ula, (kokia drynariodes) which had been reduced to less than ten plants in the wild.

There are a few plantings of hibiscus brakenridgei, mao hau hele, Hawaii's state flower.
