The trail is easy to walk, but there are side paths that can get you off the main one as you see plants that draw you to the side paths. The trail is a 2 mile loop, it is wide and mostly dirt but there are places where the off-trail can dead end. We loved the trail, the atmosphere of a garden in a crater, and a respite from crowds. It is a natural amphitheater for plants, this collection is amazing and heavenly. We decided to visit Koko Crater Botanical Garden, right after New Years, in January. Look for the mongooses, beautiful birds, and other wildlife. Every one that visit Oahu Island should go there. No water on site so bring plenty for yourself. The garden is free and a self guided. About an hour easy walk. Try following the signs. It's great!

Beautiful walk through the crater with all kinds of tropical plants and trees. We enjoyed the quietness of the park, only a handful of people we met. It was really hot in the crater, so make sure to bring plenty of water. There are no facilities, you can't buy any food or water there. Only one outhouse in the entire park.

This was a cool place. Do not come expecting to see manicured lawns and nicely paved pathways. It was more like a forest with all sorts of weird trees. Mostly there were name signs on them. Pathways had us often wondering, " are we supposed to go this way." A great variety of amazing trees, at least to a mainlander. There was even a cactus section. We were probably there for a couple of hours. The Garden is free, 194 acres and operated by the University of Hawaii. I recommend this park! We were not bothered by insects in January.

We went to visit this botanical garden, first we found out that it was free. Then, the visit was just fantastic, a collection of trees in the center of a crater, it was just a Big WOW. Every one that visit Oahu Island should go there.

What else can you say but how much value you get for a free area to walk in? Big area, lots of wonderful plants, port o potty a few hundred feet after the start of the trail. Surrounded by the most beautiful view of the crater. One of the best highlights of our Hawaii vacation. So many great photos taken. Bring shade and water, there are no facilities or building to visit. At least there is a bathroom, though.
