September 15 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

**DUE TO LIMITED PARKING AT THE TRAILHEAD, SPACE IS AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST 8 VOLUNTEERS!**

Wiliwilinui Ridge Trail is located mauka of Kalani High School in the Ahupua’a of Wai’alae. The lower part of the trail is dominated by non-native/invasive weeds like Ironwood and Strawberry Guava. As you make your way along the trail, you will start to see native forest trees like ‘Ōhi’a and Koa on your way to the summit.

How to Get There
Approximate Address: 2390 Okoa Street, Honolulu, HI 96821.
The Wiliwilinui Trailhead is located in the gated community at the top of Laukahi St. onto Okoa St. Must stop at the guard shack and driver shows I.D. to receive a parking pass. Park in the small parking area at the end of Okoa St. is on your way up to the trail head.

What to Expect
We will be hiking 1.5 hours along an easy to moderate slope on uneven terrain with some short, narrow spans and steep dropoffs along the trail. The trail is at an incline in some areas, and muddy at times, so please be prepared to get dirty on this trip!
