  • Beautiful refuge! The best place in the world to find pure Hawaiian Ducks. Lots of Hawaiian Coots and Hawaiian Black Necked Stilts as well. Please do not get out and walk around as it will frighten these highly endangered species.
  • Great hike! There are 3 parts to this hike. 1st about a mile straight uphill to the telephone poles. Second much easier across the ridge to a higher viewpoint and breathtaking scense of the bay below. The third is the hardest part as you have to climb up with ropes to reach the top. The first two parts are worth the trip!
