Waluku Ridge trail to Waluku Cross. The trail is not maintained. It's almost bushwhacking with some areas having chest high brush. There's also a lot of mud. The views at the end are amazing. You know you got there when the trail ends at a wind-swept tree that i would describe as majestical. There was a war/battle here where the army of Kamehameha I defeated the army of Maui. The Battle of Kepaniwai. Many Hawaiians died here resulting in the “damming of the waters” by the corpses floating in the river. It was said that the river “ran red with the blood of the dead.” As such, this is a special place and if you decide to hike this trail, please be respectful.
