West of Waimea on the Big Island, Paniolo Adventures offers guided horseback rides through green pastures. The open riding, not single file, is on an 11,000 acre working cattle ranch on Kohala Mountain (an old volcano). The rides pass through lush pastureland and groves of native ohia trees.

The trailhead is located 0.2 miles north of milepost 13 on SR250.

Overall, Paniolo is the 6th most popular horse trail of all 19 horseback rides in Hawaii. Several of the better horse trails are nearby Paniolo including Dahana Ranch, Parker Ranch, Waipio Na Alpa Trail Rides and Kohala Na Alpa Trail Rides.
