DIRECTIONS: Beginning at Lako Street (turn mauka off of the highway) just below the Kona Vista Subdivision you will find the Walua trailhead, but it intercepts a couple streets as it goes south for 3 miles.
ABOUT: Friendly, social walking/jogging/biking paved path that is popular with area residents and tourists. In places the Walua Trail is an isolated paved trail and restricted to non-motorized vehicles such as bikes, skates or pedestrians. In other areas the trail becomes Walua Road and you must share the street with cars. However, this narrow and winding neighborhood street does not see a lot of traffic, and drivers there are typically aware of you and are driving slowly. Nice shade from the trees in the morning; HOT in the afternoon, so I’d advise going in the early to mid-morning or evening.
BRING: Poop bags, leash, water
HAZARDS: High-traffic narrow trail. Possible unfriendly dogs or under-socialized dogs, so it is advised to only interact with unknown dogs IF the owner agrees to it. Please don’t let your dog say “Hi!” before asking the owner’s permission.
NEW: Improvements made by volunteers in July 2013.
