When I think of hiking in Hawaii, I think lush tropical flowers, waterfalls, and vine canopied trails. Not so much on this hike. The manager of the house we rented suggested we take a hike to the Northern tip of Oahu to catch a glimpse of seals lounging on the beach and get an amazing sunset view. Sounded great!
Well, the hike was not exactly as described. It was essentially an off-roading track thats main features included tire tracks, empty beer cans, and panties left behind. Not exactly the picturesque trail we were expecting. We turned back after talking to someone that said we had a long ways to go… by car. Since we didn’t want to be walking back in the dark and wine on the beach sounded so much better, we turned around.
The best part was climbing over the rocks along the beach. Here are some shots of that portion of our walk. The moral of the story, take advice with a grain of salt and make the time to research the destination yourself. Oopsy!
