Pu’u Ohia Trail

Difficulty: Easy

Treachery: Little to none

Actual Milage: 1.73 miles

This trail is located in Pu’u Ualakaa State Wayside for you GPS users like me.  There are several trails up at the top of this mountain and I hope to explore some more of them soon. 

The trail today was very muddy.  Maybe they had just gotten a bunch of rain I don’t know but all of our sneakers are in the washer now.  Even so it was a really nice hike through a bamboo forest.  The grade isn’t too bad and the kids did very well. 

There are a couple of clearings along the way but the big pay off is at the top.  About .5 miles in you hit hardball.  So you need to go left and up the hill.  At the top of that hill there is a telephone substation.  To the left of the chainlink fence there is a trail that goes just a little bit farther.  That’s the pay off!

The view from the top

Since the conditions were muddy we opted to walk back down “telephone road” which connects back to Tantulus Dr.  Then we walked back on the road.  

I would say this is a very family friendly hike and we probably just picked a bad day.  But a lot of fun was had by all anyway.

    Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to know a
    lot about this, like you wrote the guide in it or something.
    I feel that you just can do with some percent to power the message house
    a little bit, however instead of that, this is excellent blog.

    A great read. I’ll certainly be back.

    Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but
    I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

      I like wordpress. It’s all I’ve ever used besides the old school live journal. The format is one of the canned ones and I just spent time tweeking it the way I wanted it

    I have a confident analytical eye just for detail and can anticipate issues before they occur.
