The 5-Minute Tantalus-Arboretum Trail

I should have kept driving. My initial plan was to hike through the Honolulu Mauka Trail System by spending a lazy Saturday hiking the Pauoa Flats, Nuuanu, and Judd Trails. I would use the Manoa Cliff Trail to access Pauoa Flats. The Manoa Cliff Trail was wet and muddy, but nice as usual. I was the only one on the trail, I guess everyone else was at the Dead Man’s Catwalk. Better for me. The bench along the Manoa Cliff Trail is one of my favorite places. It faces Manoa Falls, and on a good day, you can see it flowing from a distance.
