Here’s a bit of old fashioned exploring as we ramble around the various trails on Mt. Tantalus. Uncle Phil stitches a mosaic of meandering paths that somehow takes us from beginning to end without getting us lost – do pay attention to his directions on this fun adventure.

This hike first takes us up a ridge then we drop down a side trail to Koloa Stream. Abundant native plants and maybe some mountain apples greet us as we criss-cross the stream into the valley. A short swim and a small climb will get you to the destination waterfall and plunge pool.

HTMC: Schofield-Waikane 7/11/10


(9 Mi/Advanced/Ridge/Wahiawa)
Coordinator Arnold Fujioka, ph 551-0227.
Club last hiked this =

This old Army trail has seen better days, but it still offers a passable route through some of the wildest country in central O’ahu. Check out the native plants and birds along the way, and the great view at the summit. HTMC first hiked the trail on April 13, 1924, about a year after the Army completed renovating the trail and added the Waikane portion.
