Malama Park Molokai Reviews
Molokai State Park Jun 09, 2008
The end of the trail at eh top of the park will be for ever burned into my retinas for it twas one of the most beautiful things I have ever experienced. The park is located at the tallest part/peak of Molokai. You walk down a long pathway that is moist and covered in mosses and other fungi's that give this place of the true untouched Hawaiian feel. The trail winds along this lush forest that seems TOTALLY out of place from any other part of HI due to it's lush and moist air thick with perfumes of pine and flowers not found on any other location I have visited in HI. The view at the end of the trail ends with a forest of bamboo and pine trees that embrace you so gently. The final view looks over a nearly sheer rocky cliff face covered in thick bamboo which allows one to gaze over a once leper colony that resided on this island till the late 60's or 70's. Their is also a fertility rock on and around this trail shaped like a huge Phallus. It is said that along time ago and still some to day would wait here to ensure pregnancy or make love here to do the same! (I'm glad I did not have the chance to observe such act's while spending my time here taking a nice photo op. with the family!
I would say this should be a must see for any one trying to find the true untouched Hawaii. As this Island only lets a limited amount of people on it a day. The ferry that brings you over in fact has just recently been taking these voyages for just a few years. There are 2 ferries a day I believe that do cost about average and their are two hotels on the island since I was there in 2005!
Two words: Magnificently untouched
