Please mark your calendar to join us for our next GLBT and Friends Hike Saturday, August 11th.
We will be Hiking the Waihou Springs Trail in Olinda.
This is an experimental forest of pines that was planted by the USGS and Hawaii's Division of Forestry and Wildlife planted in the 1920s. The trail begins on the tree plantation road and loops through a forest of Monterrey Cypress, Pines, eucalyptus, and Koa.
Description of Hike: The Trail follows the Waihou Springs Forest Reserve tree plantation road and descends southward to the Waihou Springs gulch below. Monterey cypress and eucalyptus trees can be seen, as well as the native tree species `ala`a, halapepe, and koa. The boulder-strewn gulch bottom marks the end of the trail. Looking up from the gulch, hikers can see a series of small water-diversion tunnels cut into the side of the rock face 30` above.
See you next month!
