Description

This connector trail has been reopened! It was a nice way to be able to see both the Awaawapuhi Trail and the Nuʻalolo Trail in one day. This trail includes a small waterfall and two small stream crossings. Much less elevation change than the trails it connects and also much less used/worn. You can also see the Nuʻalolo Valley in a few places along the way. Some sections are wooded and some are along the cliffs. The end near the Nuʻalolo Trail has quite steep terrain and can be challenging if it has recently rained.

This is at the cliff edge - this is a vista along the old trail.

This is a plank walk across a small ravine about 0.75 miles from the Nualolo Trail.

A few down trees over the trail, but they were small and we were still able to pass through. This trail was much drier than the ones it connects.
