About: Hawaii Island Retreat’s “50 acres of needled grove and valley trails include legendary council stones and native trees, planted generations ago by a Hawaiian kahuna and his beloved wife.” The owners of Hawaii Island Retreat have graciously allowed LEASHED dogs and their owners to use their hiking and jogging trails. The one time I visited, I was unable to locate any type of trail, but I’m sure it’s somewhere here, and it’s such a beautiful location, it’s nice to just stroll around. KEEP IN MIND: Visitors come here for meditation and a healthy living retreat, so I suggest bringing only your quietest, mellowest, or most trained dogs. Please be respectful of the Retreat owners and guests, so that we as dog owners can continue to be allowed to enjoy this beautiful property. Mahalo for your kokua!
DOG-FRIENDLY LODGING: They also offer dog-friendly lodging in ONE of their rooms! Please call them at 808-889-6336 for further information.
