Description

This connector trail has been reopened! It was a nice way to be able to see both the Awaawapuhi Trail and the Nuʻalolo Trail in one day. This trail includes a small waterfall and two small stream crossings. Much less elevation change than the trails it connects and also much less used/worn. You can also see the Nuʻalolo Valley in a few places along the way. Some sections are wooded and some are along the cliffs. The end near the Nuʻalolo Trail has quite steep terrain and can be challenging if it has recently rained.
