Now this is what I can here for....well actually my boss sent me here to do some work, which I did, but was looking to get away from the crowd.
The beauty of Hawaii is in the plants and animals that live here and there is no place better to experience them then right here.
Ok...so this place was not listed in my GPS, but if you lookup the street address you should not have a problem getting here. It is also on the same road as Manoa falls.
Most of the people choose to hike the falls and know nothing about this place, more open space for me...
Parking for the falls cost $5, but the arboretum is actually further up the road. Admission to the grounds is free, but would gladly accept donations. Parking is limited so get there early.
There are trails you can hike and there is even a waterfall, it's small but hidden from the crowds of people and the trail was not muddy.
There is a small gift shop were you can purchase water and snacks.
For a real sence of what Hawaii was like before all of the development took place, spend some quiet time strolling the grounds.
