    The Nuʻalolo Cliffs Trail has reopened as of November 2017 following extensive repairs.

    This is wonderful news. The Nualolo - Cliffs - 'Awa'awapuhi loop is a sprectacular, world class hike that is accessible of moderate difficulty. IMHO, it is better than the first leg of the more famous Kalalau trail, and less difficult.

    I hiked the previously closed part of the Cliffs trail in a couple of occasions, and it was bit tricky. It sounds as if the repairs have addressed those issues.

    Here's some video of the section that is now bypassed - the video also give some glimpses of the spectacular views from the trail. And I have hiked that section, all be it in dry weather. I woiuldn't have attempted it under the conditions shown in the video.

    Others in my party did the Nualolo-Cliff-Awa'awapuhi loop early this week.

    Sad to say, the rerouting of the Cliff Trail removed much of the spectacular scenery. The first third of the Cliff Trail after the junction with the Nualolo had spectacular views of the canyons below as the trail moved along the cliff face - those were the best part of the hike. The roroute completely eliminates that portion of the trail. The hikers came back saying that part of the trail moves through 8-foot tall grass where nothing can be seen.

    Now the only vistas on the trails are near the ends of the Nualolo and Awa'awapuhi Trails. They said there really wan't any point to do the loop any longer - just pick one of the trails and go out and back.
