Maunawili Demonstration Trail

There are two trails on Oahu known as the Maunawili Trail. The short one is a mile and a half long and leads to Maunawili Falls. The long one, also known as the Maunawili Demonstration Trail or the Pali Trail, is ten miles long and runs along the contour of the Ko'olau Mountain Range. I was never able to figure out where the short one was while on the island. Imagine my surprise when I found out from a friend on Dominica over a year later that the short Maunawili Trail begins on the Pali Trail! Yes, I do remember a small clearing on the Pali Trail that looks like it could go down into the jungle. I guess I'll have to go back someday and check it out. In the meantime I hope you enjoy these pictures of the Maunawili Demonstration Trail - it's my favorite trail of the ones I was able to hike while on Oahu.
