Spiral Forest

Spital Forest is one of 8  lots of an acre or more in Waikoloa Village.  THe name comes from a Chartres Labyrinth and spiral tiles that once graced the property.

The labyrinth was regularly churned up by a herd of donkeys trying to walk it and eat the Kiawe pods.Donkeys no longer visit the area since over 100 were relocated to California. Pheasant and wild turkeys visit.

The labyrinyh has been replaced with Dwarf Koa trees, (an at risk species).
