Long Day in the Hills

Sunday, 08 June 2014

Ckucke shuttled Chris, Root, and me out to Sunset Hills for the trail ride we had been longing for all week. We planned an early start to avoid the North Shore traffic, but discovered the parking area at the trailhead the most crowded we had ever seen it. A lot of people must have had the same idea as us! There had been some intermittent rain for the previous few days, so we figured we would find some damp sections, but in general, the trail was surprisingly dry except for the dark areas in the strawberry guava and Hawaiian holly below Lilikoi Junction.

D = 17.6 km, Vavr = 7.2 km/h, Vmax = 30.6 km/h, T = 2-hours, 26-minutes (total trail time about five-and-a-half hours), A/D = 706 m
