After our buggy first hike, we decided that we would go back to the same spot—but that this time the adventure would be up on the ridgetop. The hike for the day would be the Kahekili-Manamana loop. From the pictures we saw on Unreal Hawaii, it appeared we’d get some great views of the island as reward for the climb.
The views were as incredible as promised and there were even some opportunities for a little bit of scrambling. The mosquitoes were much less of a problem on this hike except for at the creek crossing (the waterfall was dry so we didn’t mind hurrying out of this area).
