Stuart Ball describes this hike as a Graded Ridge Trail that is 12 miles long round trip. It is rated
Danger - LOW, Suitable for - INTERMEDIATE/EXPERT (because of length)
I rate it as a 5 Power Bar hike for length and very similar to the Waimano Home Ridge Trail.
Some folks started up the road at 8:05, I began around 8:15, the sky down at the beach was clear while the summit was still socked in the clouds. I soon caught up with Gordon, and we walked up the road to the trail head and for about the next 1/2 hour we talked story about dis and dat. That "thing" looking like a cannon is my bamboo walking stick.
La`ie is a graded trail and a pleasure to walk on, but to get to the real trail head you must first walk an old "cane" road for a few miles. Check the map below.
