We've been working on this loop on the way to and from the Lualualei Lookout for a few weeks. The reason for the new loop section is to keep people from going in two directions on the narrow sections once on the ridge between Lualualei and Wai`anae valleys. Today I was lucky enough to hike alone w/the Wonderful Women from Makaha Jane and Stanka As you can see by the first picture I didn't take it, Jane did. Stanks also had a camera and so the pictures today are combined from the three of us. Here we are starting out at the forestry gate.
The new trail was by today already cleared. It just needed to be marked. The way up to the lookout also needed some touch up on markers as some are missing.
