Off-Roading at Kaena Point

Navigating the pristine ocean-side trails of Kaena Point State Park - where the land is dotted with native vegetation, and sand and rock meet the oftentimes turbulent ocean - offers one of those "a-ha" experiences only found in Hawaii.

Unfortunately, this nearly three-mile stretch of coastline has been under siege - no thanks to the increasing number of four-wheel-drive, off-roading activities that have damaged the area's fragile ecosystem.

As a result, future access to the park is in doubt in an effort to preserve the area.

Learn more in the video below or in the Hawaii Army Weekly.

Military personnel are encouraged to take proactive measures to protect this fragile ecosystem, and avoid off-roading in this area.

DLNR Permits

Starting November 2014, the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) is implementing a vehicle access permit system for the heavily used roads at Kaena Point State Park Reserve. Only people who applied for permits under the new vehicle access system can now drive on designated roads within the park.
