Make sure you are wearing good boots because this trail was quite muddy. Every crevice of our boots had mud. We ended turning back because we were about to go into hunting grounds with nothing bright on, so bright clothing is a must also.

This supplements my earlier review of Kahana Valley by providing more recent photographs. The presently added photographs were taken with a Tachihara 4X5 camera with Schneider lenses. Overcast skies are usually found at Kahana Valley, and this makes for better landscape photography, since it prevents...More

The Nokoa trail is the only trail that has ever made me grumpy. It's my fault for going in without insect repellant and I left looking like I have a skin disease from all the mosquito bites. As the wettest part of the island, it...More
