Last year Dan and I hike part way thru the loop. Today we would do the whole thing. This loop takes you into Makaha Valley and "somewhere" along the BWS road you cut off to the right to the south of Knife Edge Ridge. You then head toward the cliffs of Kamailiunu ridge. There you turn south and return to the starting place. BUT you can not do it like we did today as we had permission from Dan's friend Al who lives in a gated community to enter and begin and end the hike at his house. Leaving Al's place we walked along the paved road toward the back of the valley. The sky was crystal clear and we would get great pictures today of things in the distance.
