  • This garden walk is a beautiful hike. The trail offers an easy loop through many different trees from all over the world. Stunning. Keep an eye out for the mongoose darting across the path. Bring some water. The path is shaded but there are no facilities.
  • This was an unexpected delight. Its free and quite and beautiful. The two mile loop is an easy stroll along well maintained paths. If you need to shorten your trip there are several opportunities to loop back. While the paths are a perfect mix of sun, shade, and plenty of dappled sunlight, sunscreen and a hat are always a good idea in Hawaii. There is one picnic table about halfway down. Do be aware of any pesticide/herbicide treatment signs. Stay out of those areas. The garden is broken up into regions: Americas, Pacifica, Hawaii, Africa, and Madagascar, The variety of plants was surprisingly large for a Hawaiian garden. You begin in a Plumeria grove, every kind of plumeria possible is represented. You'll also see Kiawe, Koa, many variety of Cacti, Palms, Wiliwili, Leopard Tree, serveral variety of Aloe, so many more, too many to list.
  • Don't let the name fool you. We were expecting to walk around a nice little garden. Instead we needed to hike. We only brought flip flops and didn't want to go back so we kept on going. The cactuses are beautiful and unique. I accidentally stepped on a piece of the cactus that fell on the floor. It pierced through my Nike flip flop. Other than that was a good trip.
  • Not that many things to see. Almost every flower was so withered and there were lots of useless bushes. Never go there again.
  • Near gardens tucked inside Koko Head crater. Off the beaten path and definitely not a place that you will stumble upon by accident. There are many interesting plant species located along the loop. Be prepared for very hot conditions though through out the visit.
