Pebble Beach to Old Fishing Village-December 17, 2011

pebble beachOn Saturday, December 17, 2011, the Kona Hiking Club will hike from Pebble Beach (Kaohe) to an old fishing village. On the way back to Pebble Beach we will hike to the top of a pu`u at the edge of the shoreline. This pu`u is refered to as Pig Pu`u by one resident.

 

 

 

 

 

We will hike 1 ½ miles along a shoreline trail to old fishing village for a total of 3 miles roundtrip. This hike is moderate due to lack of shade and hot and dry conditions and the climb up the pu`u. Swimming/snorkeling is possible at a pebble beach, conditions permitting; however, no lifeguard is available.

We will have our long lunch/snack break at this spot. Hikers need to be prepared for potentially warm, sunny weather and/or rainy weather. Wear closed-toed shoes, hat, bring hiking sticks, binoculars, sun protection, lunch or snack and at least two liters of water per person.
