Hawaiian Healing practices. Trail leads to the Princess lookout overseeing the Agnes
Cope Native Hawaiian Healing Center.
Ho`ala (To Awaken) Trail
One can take their first steps to wellness along this flat meandering trail. Look
forward to this trail also being a bike path adjoining to the Waianae community
Starting at the traditional Native Hawaiian Healer's hale, petroglyphs, crafted
by Native Hawaiian artist Kauila Clark, have been placed along this trail named
after a rock that resembles a turtle. The beautiful copper “turtle gate” was created
by the artist Sooriya and the serene waterfall and pond was constructed by Health
Center staff. Materials and labor for this trail were donated by Texas Roadhouse
Restaurants. The trail continues through the Amphitheater and Bettini Gardens.
Laau (Herb) Trail
Various medicinal herbs, and other plants useful to the people of the Waianae Coast,
are planted along this trail.
Takes us back to our ties with the natural world. Aumakua is simply our animal family
relations and they can be animals that exist today or even legendary animals in
the Hawaiian legacy. One must be in excellent health to enjoy this challenging trail
and the beautiful view of the Waianae Coast. It is steep and can be a hard climb.
Ke Ala O Ke'oke'o Kea Trail
Starting at the Donor's Fountain, the Legacy Trail honors those that have donated
so generously to the Health Center. Along the trail is Hale Ho'ili'ili o Ke Ola,
a tribute to our employees. Enjoy this significant trail, hugged by the white hibiscus,
(a species endemic to Hawaii) which represents our history, our values, and our
vision for the future.
