Keaau Ridge

Sunday 28 November 2010

72nd hike for 2010


Today Dan, David and I began to scout the trail going up what HTMC calls Keaau Ridge in Ohikilolo Valley.  I believe it was pioneered by Pat Rorie (sometimes known as Paka) in 2008.  I climbed the trail w/the "club" in 2008 and missed the 2009 hike.  If you have to hike in from the highway the walk along the road is about 1 3/4 miles.  If you can open the gate w/combo and permission from DLNR you can save 1/4 of a mile one way.  We were able to drive in to the second gate.

Both Dan and I took pictures today as well as a HD video that I took.  Dan's pictures are the smaller ones as I had to download them from eMail he sent.

Parked at the end of the paved road.
