Kurt's Favorite Oahu Trail

Subject: Re: Favorite trail?

My favorite trail is Pu'u Ohulehule (I know what you're thinking ) with the Haiku stairs making a strong second. There is something about Ohulehule that seems to fascinate me. I guess I'm like Pat. Heh. This hike is awesome. The panaramic views are well worth the effort. Now if I can just keep from slipping off that darn cable....Btw the ribs have healed...

I've done the Haiku Stairs so many times I've lost count. I even remember a bunch of highscool buddies and I spending an entire weekend up there. We hiked up late one Friday afternoon and came down Sunday morning. The sunsets were unbelievable and one of the most beautiful sunrises I have ever seen was the Sunday morning when we hiked down. During the day we hiked down both sides of the ridges and down into Moanalua valley. I have dreams about this place from time to time. In one of my dreams the stairs to the top were made of gold. Heh. Wouldn't that be something?
