Accessible by driving up a 10-mile dirt road through central Molokai and a 2-mile hike into the Kamakou Preserve, the Pepe'opae Bog Trail is worth the visit. Maintained by The Nature Conservancy, over 200 unique indigenous Hawaiian plants are preserved here. Over a mile of tenuous, overgrown boardwalk trails showcase natural Hawaiian flora and the chance to experience a truly wondrous mountaintop bog.
The boardwalk into the bog is a metal grid strip that supports better footing and prevents foot traffic from destroying the native plants. It traverses uphill through steep and narrow pathways. It requires some skill not to lose your balance and step into the bog.
