LOCATION: Wa‘ahila Ridge State Recreation Area, at the top of St. Louis Heights
 

Although, we didn't really hike the trail fully on this day, I was happy to scope it out for next time.

We're surrounded by tall Cook Island pines. Wild chickens everywhere.

The trail keeps you on your toes as it is transitions from climbing steps, then hiking up tentacles of tree roots... the path is covered in soft ironwood needles. We hear you have to scale a few boulders, too... my kind of trail!

Energy Boost and Natural Snacks on the Trail: You can smell the strawberry guava along the trail. They grow all year-round (especially during the summer months). They're invasive fruits so pick and eat away for sweet boost of energy.
