Another amazing hike with the Hawaiian Trail and Mountain Club. This is my last hike with them as I'm due to leave Hawaii in 3 days. I met up with hike organizer Wil Kawano and several other members at the I'olani Palace. I checked in and paid my donation fee of $3 and had Will sign my HTMC member application. His was the second of two signatures that I needed. Then followed Bryan up to the residential area just before the entrance of Paradise Park where other hikers were waiting. We hiked to the the Manoa Falls trailhead and Wil gave his spiel. The part about 'Aihualama Trail being closed due to a landslide several months ago caught my attention, we were going to hike it anyways. Two club members were already at the landslide section of the trail and had done some work on it to make it passable for the club hike today. Enjoy some of my photos of the our hike from Manoa Falls into the Nu'uanu valley.
