The Falls that Fell


The hike to Kapioloa Falls along the Kohala Ditch Trail on the north tip of the Big Island crumbled into the valley after the big earthquake of 2006. Hikers made the short trek after gaining permission to enter private property of the Surety Kohala Corporation, or by taking a trip with Hawaii Forest & Trail, the island's premier adventure outfitter. With quakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis in the mix, you literally cannot  count on the ground you stand on to be there next year on the Big Island.
