North Kohala, Hawaii is a land of towering waterfalls and rich, impressive forests. This was the backdrop to our Kohala Zip & Dip adventure with Hawaii Forest & Trail.

We explored the vastly different lands, zipped high above the forest floor, picnicked on the rim of Pololu Volley, and swam under a private waterfall. I’m still in awe of my over-all experience with Hawaii Forest & Trail.
