Hiking The Ohai Loop and Overlook Trail Off Of Kahekili Highway on Maui’s North Shore

The Ohai Loop Trail is a short hike that we stumbled on while driving through Kahekili Highway on Maui’s North Shore. You’ll find the trailhead and parking for this trail between mile marker 40 and 41. The loop is short, but it is very scenic. The highlight comes at the midpoint, where a single chair awaits, making for the perfect spot to watch for whales and seabirds.

Olowalu Petroglyphs of Puu Kilea at the Olowalu Cultural Reserve

Tucked within the old sugar cane fields of West Maui is a piece of preserved Hawaiiana. The Olowalu Petroglyphs, or Petroglyph Hill as some call it, is not too far from the Olowalu General Store. A dirt road will bring you directly to a slab of rock wall with over 100 petroglyphs. The petroglyphs are thought to tell the story of ancient Hawaiian legends and journeys. You can clearly see the carvings of human figures, animals, and sails. If visiting the Olowalu Petroglyphs, be sure to heed the signs by not defacing or damaging the area in anyway.

8 Exposures Vol. 7: Lahaina and Paia Town, Maui

My classic SX-70 has been racking up those Hawaiian Miles, having visited Lanai and Maui over the past couple of months. Decided to snap a few shots around Lahaina and Maui’s eclectic Paia Town, the final resemblance of civilization for those who decide to drive the road to Hana. Unfortunately, it was a bit rainy and I felt a bit rushed trying to snap what was left of my roll in the 1-hour timeframe that we spent in Paia, before heading to Kahului Airport.
