A shady stroll takes you through a lush green valley toward the heart of the Ko’olau Range. Pass the stone barrier marked kuli’ou’ou reservoir, sign in on the sheet in the mailbox to your left, and follow the clearly marked trail northward into the valley. In 0.2 mile the trail splits. Your route continues straight ahead (north), while the Kuli’ou’ou Ridge Trail cuts off to the right (east). Use a set of built-in boot brushes at this junction to scrape off any noxious weed seeds you might have picked up elsewhere. Hawaii’s native vegetation is under siege from aggressive introduced species. The trail follows alongside a (usually) dry streambed lined with dense ferns and strawberry guava trees. Take your time beside a little stream to savor the ferns and flowers. You’re almost certain to hear the clear, melodious song of the shama thrush, and have a good chance of seeing one.
