Park on the right, along the street, to meet with the group prior to starting the hike; we will meet at 8:30 and start hiking at 8:45. If you are late, proceed through the break in the fence, mauka, along the dirt road. Maunawili Ditch Trail will be on your right. Note: If you continue up the dirt road, it will end at the Waimanalo side of the Maunawili Trail. This is a loop trail so, we will exit on Mahiku Place and then will need to proceed up the street and then turn right on Waikaupanaha Street to get back to the cars.
