Ohiki Rd, Hanalei, HI
IMPORTANT: IF THE FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT OR TURNS TO A FLASH FLOOD WARNING, NOBODY SHOULD HIKE THIS TRAIL. The trail head begins along the Hanalei River which can flood during heavy rain. They close the road on both sides of the bridge and hikers could be stuck for hours or days with no way to back home. It would be irresponsible to lead this hike if the weather forecast remains the same. I for one don't want to take the chance.
If you're not familiar with this hike, here's how to get to the Okolehau Trail Head: At the Hanalei Bridge (black metal and wood) there is a small road going inland (Ohiki Rd) and if you drive a little ways.. maybe .6 mile, you'll see the trailhead on the right and the parking area on the left.
The hike is pretty steep in places. You can find photos of some of the other times we've hiked it. There are gorgeous views of Hanalei Bay along the way.
Gladys would like to do this hike before she leaves, so anyone who would like to join in surely may. There is plenty of parking at the trail head, but if anyone wants to meet at the Kauai Minigolf or somewhere to carpool or caravan, that could be arranged too.
Suggest bring a lunch and something to drink. I won't be going past the "bench" but those who are adventurous can go on ahead. I'll wait!
Any questions, feel free to call, text or e-mail me.

Josh, relaxing at the stopping point for me, others may want to go on.
Lovely wooded trail for part of the way.
I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
