Geocache Description:

Cook pine trees look similar to Norfolk Island pines but generally they have a wider cone shape. They were discovered by Captain Cook and were brought to Hawaii from New Caledonia. D T Fleming, a plantation owner and conservationist, planted over 13,000 pines by 1920 in the Kapalua area. You can't miss these graceful towering giants.

This cache is located on the old Village Golf Course which is no longer a golf course - it is very overgrown - and the owners have opened the former golf paths to walkers. There are stunning panoramic views of the ocean, the neighboring islands and a hidden lake with ducks. You can bring some bread to feed them.

The Kapalua Adventure Center sometimes has trail maps available but if not, maps are posted at the Adventure Center and at various spots along the trail. You can park at the Adventure Center.

Go through the first tunnel. The cache is a bison tube wired to a tree branch. Do not "unwire" container; unscrew the bottom, sign log, and screw the bottom back on. You might need tweezers to take out the log and you will definitely need a writing implement.

Bring water and you might want to bring bug spray, sunscreen, a hat, a snack, and a poncho as rain is always a possibility. Enjoy your hike!
