Coastal Hike to Mano Point-April 19, 2008

mano-pointThe Kona Hiking Club will take a shoreline hike to Mano Point on Saturday, April 19. The hike will be approximately 8 miles in length, over rough, dry, barren lava.



Hikers should expect hot conditions and bring at least 2 liters of water per person, along with sun protection and lunch. Sturdy boots, a hat, and hiking stick are recommended. No childlren or pets will be allowed.


Visitors as well as residents are welcome to participate, and there is no charge. Participants should meet at 8:15 a.m. at “Loretta Lynn’s house” (south of Kiholo Bay). Driving north from Kailua on Queen Ka’ahumanu Hwy, turn left (makai) on gravel road between mile markers 82 and 83 (before the scenic iew turnout). Follow the gravel road towards the ocean, eventually turning left a short distance — look for a raised round house with parking area on right.

Carpoolers should meet at 7:15 a.m., organize themselves, and depart no later than 7:30 a.m. Carpoolers are encouraged to contribut toward gasoline costs.
