HTMC: Wailupe Loop 3/21/10

Mar 21 Sun 8AM WAILUPE LOOP 100-Mi

(6 Mi/Intermediate/Ridge/Aina Haina)

It's a steep, lung busting climb to the crest of the Ko’olau from the valley; cross over the narrow, windswept, summit ridge with death drops; and at the Wiliwilinui ridge summit make your way down the slippery, clay-like dirt trail with a rope to assist you. Watch for pink ribbons along the 4WD road that will loop you back to the valley. 

Coordinator Jay Feldman, ph 234-9069.

HTMC: Wiliwilinui 3/20/10


(4 Mi/Intermediate/Ridge/Wai’alae)

The good news is that it's mostly a 4WD road walk and quite lovely with the first two steep, eroded sections of the trail terraced with man-made steps.  The bad news is that on the final ascent to the Ko’olau crest the upper two exposed sections have turned into a trench with no terraced steps with only a rope to assist you.  Would you believe this trail was first hiked by the club on March 20, 1920
