Ala Loa Trail, The Big Island, Hawai’i

The Ala Loa Trail, also known as the King’s Trail, was built for horse travel in the mid-19th century and runs for 50 kilometres, between the villages of Kailua in Kona and Puako. It was constructed by Hawaiians paying their tax in labour and by prisoners. On either side of the trail are kerbs, built up by rocks, that were designed to keep the horses and pack animals on the path allowing the rider to sleep on the journey.
