Hawaii Forest & Trail

For parents with children 16 years or older, there can be no better adventure than seeing the islands of Hawaii, the sunset and the stars from the summit of the tallest mountain on earth, rising 32,000 feet from the ocean's floor.
A trip to the summit of Mauna Kea is a long, and somewhat physically demanding adventure but one well worth the trip. A group to the summit consists of about ten folks, usually of all ages.
The guides are extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. They are combination naturalists, culturalists, geologists and astronomers.
