Molokai Mule Ride

Molokai Mule Ride

The Molokai Mule Ride located in the cool Molokai uplands, a pack of mules prepare for the day’s ride down to the world’s most unique and formerly forbidden village of Kalaupapa. The journey begins from the Mule Barn with a mule guide briefing. You’ll learn your mule’s name and the Mule Skinners (guides) will teach you how to ride and control the mules. No worries, these mules are personally trained by company owner Buzzy Sproat. Well known in the Hawaii Rodeo circuit, Buzzy is also considered one of Hawaii’s foremost experts on Mules.

The boundless beauty you will experience as you traverse down the 2.9 mile trail, with 26 switchbacks, leaves most folks absolutely speechless.

Upon arriving in Kalaupapa, you’ll be met by your Damien Tours guide and for the next few hours you’ll experience one of Hawaii’s most remarkable tours, in a community hidden from the world for so many years.  You will learn about the leper colony, its people, Father Damien, incredible tales of struggle and human suffering, along with stories of courage and love.

    Great video. What a legacy for the compassionate care-givers for the Hanson's Disease folks. The ride looks a tad scarey in an exciting way. We will check it out this February when we're in Molokai. Reply
