Alas, it was not to be. The trail is on private property and has been closed. So...we drove around the north shore of Maui, researching other ideas from guidebooks and internet resources. What we found was pretty awesome, focused on Maui's natural coastal beauty rather than its unique agricultural past as our intended walk had.
Here are pics we took setting up a three-part walk north of Ka'anapali. The highlight was a blowhole reached by hiking through surreal lava formations sculpted by wave action over the eons. Surf is generally up this time of winter, and the blow hole was spouting like an asphyxiating whale. While Scott stood upwind for his shots, I picked a spot in the overspray zone and ended up wet with salt water all over my camera.
Great day of walk planning in Maui. Four more days ahead. I'll try to post a video or two, internet speeds permitting.
