Maui's Makawao and Kula forest reserves are now re-opened, bringing the island's tally for state parks and facilities re-opening after closing in the wake of Tropical Depression Flossie to four. Five state parks in Hawaii County re-opened earlier today. 

The state Department of Land and Resources plans to re-open the following parks and forest reserves tomorrow. The parks and reserves by island are:

Hawaii Island: 

>> Ainapo Trail and cabin 

>> Pololu Trail 

>> Waimanu Trail and campground 


>> Black sand beach portion of Makena State Park

>> Polipoli State Park

The following trails, campgrounds and parks remain closed pending further assessment of conditions following high winds and heavy rain caused by the tropical depression. 


>>Waianapanapa State Park 


>> Kalalau Trail in the Na Pali Coast State Wilderness Park  

Reopened this morning on Maui were Iao Valley State Monument Park and Makena State Park. However, Black Sand Beach area access road remains closed.

On the Big Island, the state reopened Hapuna Beach State Recreational Area (including Hapuna and Waialea sections), Kiholo State Park Reserve, Kekaha Kai State Park (including Manini owali (Kua Bay) and Mahaiula sections), Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park  and Lapakahi State Historical Park.
