Kayak down the beautiful Hule'ia River, a filming site for the blockbusters Jurassic Park and Raiders of the Lost Ark! As you paddle through the Hule'ia National Wildlife Refuge, see the living archeological site of Alekoko, a fishpond preserving the aquaculture methods of ancient Hawaiians. Then head off on a 1.5 mile (2.4 km) nature walk to Hidden Valley Falls, a captivating series of pool-drop waterfalls cascading over black lava rock. After enjoying the jungle, return to the river for a fun and relaxed trip back in a powered, double-hulled canoe.
