Established in 2000 to preserve, protect and interpret traditional Native Hawaiian culture and natural resources, Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail is a 175 mile corridor encompassing a network of culturally and historically significant trails.

This "trail by the sea" traverses wahi pana (storied landscapes), ancient Hawaiian sites and over 200 ahupuaʻa (traditional land divisions).


The trail can be unofficially accessed through sections within the four National Parks on the Island of Hawai'i including Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park, Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park and Pu'ukohola National Historic Site. Otherwise, the section of the Ala Kahakai Trail under Hawaii State Na Ala Hele jurisdiction is open for public use.
