Jeep Trips

Traversing pathways of yesteryear

The Kona Historical Society Jeep Trip is a special program which allows access to historic and remote parts of Hawaiʻi Island where ecological, archaeological, architectural and other elements of each region are discussed with KHS member patrons. Depending on the location of the trip, there are sometimes also performances, craft making, music, reforestation or other projects that become part of the special day with a small group of like-minded people wanting a deeper understanding of the history and natural features of the land. Some of the Kona Historical Society Jeep Trips in previous years have gone to Kealapuali, an old sheep station on Palani Ranch; Mana Road, an old wagon road that winds its way between Waimea and the Saddle area; and Waiahukini, a former fishing village in the Kaʻu district which shows evidence of habitation from the earliest period of settlement of Hawaii to modern times. Close to 200 of these trips have transpired over 4 decades with destinations that have ranged from the significant and sacred to stunningly beautiful. This is a very special member benefit.
