Description

For centuries, Hawaiians travelling by foot relied on carefully planned trails through the lava. One network of ancient and historic trails, extending from southeastern Hawai’i Island along the west coast and ending in the far north, is today's Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail.

This coastal trail corridor traverses some of the most rugged and beautiful landscapes in Hawaii, and passes through four national park units along the way.

Park Species List

Select a Species Category (optional):

What's the difference?

A Checklist contains only those species that are designated as "present" or "probably present" in the park.

The Full List with Details includes all the Checklist species plus species that are unconfirmed, historically detected, or incorrectly reported in the park. The Full List also contains species that are "in review" because their status in the park hasn't been fully determined. Additional details about the status of each species is included in the Full List.

The Checklist will almost always contain fewer species than the Full List.
