Nualolo & Awa'awapuhi Trails

This past Sunday, we took our guests to Koke'e State Park, one of our favorite places to hike. We took the Nualolo trail, and continued on the adjoining Awa'awapuhi trail for a total of 10 miles of strenuous hiking. The hike showcased gorgeous views into the scenic Na Pali coast. Though seen just the day before on our boat tour, the hike allowed a completely new perspective on the amazing coastline.

The last 3 miles, uphill through a boring forest in the pouring rain, were our favorite part. Just kidding. At the end of the loop, our car was parked 1.5 miles away. Normally this would be an easy walk, but with the rain and after the long hike, it was not pleasant. Luckily, we were able to cash in on some of the aloha spirit when we succeeded in our first attempt at hitchhiking and were picked up by a pickup truck on the way back to our car. The four of us, smashed into the wet, muddy truck bed in the pouring rain, had never been so happy.
