Green Sand Beach-March 15, 2008

green sand beachThe Kona Hiking Club will hike to Green Sand Beach at South Point on Saturday, March 15. The hike will be about 5 miles round trip over mostly level terrain. Hikers should be prepared for both hot and/or windy conditions and possibly rain. There is no shade on the trail.

 

Each person should carry 2 liters of water. Also recommended are closed-toe shoes, sun protection, lunch, and a hiking stick. If ocean conditions permit, swimming may be an option at the lunch stop. However, there is no lifeguard.

Hikers will meet at 8:30 a.m. at the parking lot near the boat ramp. Driving south from Kailua, turn right on South Point Road (between mm 69 & 70). Follow road (guestimate) 7-8 miles until you come to a rough paved road veering left. Take left and follow road to the boat ramp parking area past the hut/store.

Participants desiring to carpool from Kailua-Kona may meet at 6:45 a.m. at Lanihau Center in the vicinity of Buns in the Sun, well away from the businesses. A hike leader will be present for carpooling, and hikers should depart no later than 7:00 a.m. Carpoolers are encouraged to chip-in for gasoline. For more information, call Alice at 322-6481.

However, if you do so, PLEASE make sure that you direct them to this website to review the hike announcement and description.
