Maunawili Demonstration Trail Hike/Other Activities

I have a question.

Some of us are planning to hike the Maunawili Trail towards Waimanalo. Not everyone is going hiking, and those not hiking will pick us up. Question: what are some interesting activities that those not hiking can do in the time the rest of us hike the trail? (ie. nearby activities)?

We will be hiking the trail all afternoon (from noon onward).

Mahalo!

Things in the area:

Kailua Beach, Lanikai Beach, Waimanalo Bay Recreation Area, Byodo-In Temple

Hoomaluhia Botanical Garden - This is probably the best botanical garden on Oahu. It's free.

Have a great time! I've done this hike a couple of times. If it has rained, you will get muddy...and take plenty of water. It's not a hard hike, but there's some distance to cover. Will you be starting from the hairpin curve on the Pali Highway or coming up the Maunawili Falls trail?

We will be starting it from the hairpin curve. Mahalo for the ideas!
