Kalalau Trail

Margaret, this one is for you.

We hiked two miles in and two miles back on the Kalalau Trail. The rocky, sometimes very muddy red earth trail is as challenging, and at times more so, than anything the Bruce Trail has to offer. It is an eleven mile trail and it is highly recommended thatit be done in two days as a minimum with a camp-0ver on the beach. I would certainly be ready for a sleep at the end of eleven miles. The difficulty would be getting up the next day and hiking out. I guess that is why some stay on the beach for two or three days or more.

Some people run the trail.  Some people are crazy. The views are fabulous. Runners would miss so much awesomeness. As well as tall waterfalls and stunning cliff side views of the turquoise and navy Pacific, there were miniature wild orchids, streams to walk through, whales breaching and our house plants magnified to jungle size.

We also swam on our beach this morning and this afternoon. I collected shells and walked the beach while Brian caught and released fish.

It did not rain. Yeah! An awesome sunset!

  1. A couple days sleeping on the beach would be a fabulous option! Certainly looks like you need your walking sticks. I guess you couldn’t fit them in with the fishing pole.
    Photos are great.

  2. Hello Fergusons! We have been busy what with babysitting August and getting ready for the 24 folks that are coming to our Chinese New Years supper. Your trip looks great and its nice that we can live vicariously through your pictures. Down to babysit Gus for the last two days and yesterday felt like spring. The sun was warm and Gus and I ran through every puddle we could find! Murray and Cory
