Kanepuu Preserve

Located on the west of Lanai, Kanepuu Preserve is the ideal destination for the nature lover in you. Because this rare and beautiful forest is protected by the Nature Conservancy, it contains the remnants of Olopua or Lama dryland forest in all of Hawaii. Encompassing 590 acres and home to more than 40 native species of plants, Kanepuu Preserve offers you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view one of the Earth’s most fragile ecosystems. In order to get around this land of lush greenery, Kanepuu Preserve offers self-guiding maps (for those who want to find their own way through the forest), as well as group tours (where a guided hike is run by the Nature Conservancy of Hawaii).
