Ke Ala Kahawai O Waimea | The Stream Trail of Waimea

Waimea Trail

Fallen Tree Bridge

Ke Ala Kahawai O Waimea follows the Waikoloa stream through town for 1.04 miles. The shaded, level route is kid-friendly and a favorite of dog walkers, joggers and off-road bicyclists. Waikoloa stream flows trailside and is dotted with small cascades and rock-rimmed pools.  The trail surface is packed dirt and woodchips.  Future improvements call for a paved tread.

Currently the trail begins at Lanakila Park, running behind the Catholic Church crossing the stream, hugging the south side of the stream and skirting the south side of Ulu La`au – Waimea Nature Park.  Beyond the west end of Ulu La`au, the trail crosses over the stream and continues across the end of Opelo Road following the stream to the Kahawai Street access gate.
