We started off that morning with a hike on Hauula Trail Loop. It is a 3 mile loop with a little climbing, a great place for a trail run or a family hike.
Park at the beach across from 7-11 and head up the residential road towards the mountain.
I’ll warn you right here. At the loop you get to choose to go right or left. We went right because it started off uphill so we thought we would get the uphill climb out of the way. Go left! There is less climbing if you go left than to the right.
We stopped by Laie Point to see if we could jump (like I did in 2008) but it was way too windy and choppy so we got a few pictures and called it a day.
