Historical Ocean & Kohala Ditch Trail



Monday through Saturday
8:15am & 12:45pm
Duration: 2 hours


Spectacular scenery on top of 200-foot sea cliffs. Ride along King Kamehameha’s pathway to his playground to a secluded pebbled bay where you can relax and enjoy a refreshment while your guide shares the area's unique history. On a clear day, the island of Maui can be seen in the distance. Continue your journey into the Kohala mountains and ride along side the unique Kohala Ditch system. Our trail traces the old railroad path, which once serviced our bustling sugar industry. Riding through private ranchlands and pastures to the coast, the Historical Ocean Trail is an enjoyable ride that is easy for every level of rider.
