One of the shorter hikes we did was to the Pu'u Huluhulu which was 2.5 miles and took about an hour with stops for pictures. It was very similar to the hike the day before on the Naula trail.

        ... like Far North Qld. Some rocky creek crossings took us to a walking track to the black sands of the Waipio getting very hungry for lunch, which we had later at the Waipio Valley Overlook ( pre packed Japanese style lacquer boxes with fish, chicken and rice. We were a little flummoxed by the soya beans which were very tough and hairy. We could only pop out the seeds to eat, which is apparently what you are supposed to do!)
