Located centrally within the island this 1 mile moderate difficulty trail follows the Waihou Springs Forest Reserve tree plantation road and descends southward to the Waihou Springs gulch below. Monterey cypress and eucalyptus trees can be seen, as well as the native tree species `ala`a, halapepe, and koa. The boulder-strewn gulch bottom marks the end of the trail. Looking up from the gulch, hikers can see a series of small water-diversion tunnels cut into the side of the rock face 30` above.
