Mount ‘Alava Adventure Trail Hike
Yesterday, Park Ranger Pua took off-island students from Linfield College to a challenging loop trail along ridge lines with views of the north and central parts of the national park and island.
Hiked up and down ladders with ropes for balance totaling 56 ladders and 783 steps! This trail led to the Mount ‘Alava Summit, returning down a steep section of trail to Vatia Village, and loops back along the road to the trailhead. (Distance : 5.6 mi / 9 km roundtrip)
These college students are primarily Business & Economics Majors studying how our islands natural resources and environmental amenities factor into a nation’s economy. Fa’afetai (Thank You) to Mr. Eric Schuck for coordinating this ranger-led visit to the national park.
