This trail should be renamed (and probably deleted). It should be called something like “Manoa Middle Ridge Trail to Southern Contour.” Manoa Middle Ridge is much more pleasant when coming from the Seven Bridges Trail (versus Pu’u Pia). Plus, you can reach K2 more easily from the summit ridge than via the collapsing contour. The southern contour trail was reconditioned a while back by HTMC but has since fallen into poor condition; several sections of the contour trail have deteriorated due to landslides (and should only be attempted with great caution). I recommend hiking to the Manoa Middle Ridge peak (marked on the map). This will not reward you with a Verified Completed badge, but the views are amazing!!
