Waihe'e Coastal Dunes Hike
D = 2 miles R/T, Moderate Walk
Meet at 9 am across from Waihe’e Elementary School on Kahekili Highway
Explore nearly 2 miles of secluded coastline (former Waihe'e dairy site) acquired by the Hawaiian Islands Land Trust to keep it from development. There are archaeological features, unspoiled views, and we'll see native plants and possibly whales, monk seals, turtles, and Hawaiian birds. We will stop for an early lunch. If you are willing and able to pick up trash on the way back, please bring a bag.
There is no shade, so bring sunscreen, a hat, plenty of water, and lunch/snacks. Bring rainwear (just in case!) Although the paths are well worn, covered shoes are recommended on this rocky coast. Limited to 20 people.
Leader: Adriane Raff-Corwin <firstname.lastname@example.org> or 419-5143.
Please be prepared for outings. Bring lunch, water, rain gear, sunscreen and appropriate footwear. Hiking boots are recommended for longer hikes. A donation of $5 ($3 for Sierra Club members) is requested of hikers over age 14.
