Off the beaten track, accessible from both the Mauna Kea access road and Waimea using a 4×4 vehicle, lies a gem of Hawaii few know about. Though there are many forest reserves dotted along the island, this one on the side of Mauna Kea holds something special. With a permit from the state, it is possible to not only visit this forest reserve, but also eat the fruit of the lands. At the right time of the year, the trees are filled with apples, pears, peaches and walnuts. It is a tranquil place of beauty that shouldn’t be passed up if the opportunity arises.
