Hiking the Pali Puka, Hawaii

We just hiked the Pali Puka, and it was awesome! The Pali Puka, which is sitatued in Kaneohe, is super close to our campus, and therefore a popular hike among the students here. The trail is pretty easy to follow, as you start by going through a bamboo forest. Then you follow a ridgeline all…

Maunawili Falls, Hawaii
