On a self-guided tour, you can first drive to the spectacular Kamaee Falls waterfall*. Along the way, you can view exotic palms, banana, kukui and hala trees then wind your way through hau, hibiscus and native Hawaiian plants on your way back to the lush Rainforest Trail.
Wander along the paved and handicapped accessible Rainforest Trail alongside the tumbling Hanapueo Stream as you examine such tropicals as ginger, heliconia, green and red jade vine and bamboo beneath a shady canopy of rainforest trees.
For the adventuresome, you can walk an additional mile through the unpaved Rainforest Trail extension to view the wilder portions of the rainforest as well as a variety of spice trees planted along the trail.
Returning to the gardens entrance, you can take our paved walkways through the landscaped Rainbow Walk filled with anthuriums, bromeliads, palms, ti, cinnamon, allspice, the pencil tree and scores of other tropical species. Don’t miss the Orchid Wall and the Children’s Maze. While wandering watch for signs and bring along a Walking Stick audio tour wand. This provides information about many of the plants along the Rainbow Walk and others throughout the various gardens.
If you still have time, wander at leisure through the grassy lawns of our Arboretum to view trees filled with flowers, fruits and nuts. Be sure to hunt for the many varieties of orchids blooming in the trees.
