Blue Star Card Activities for Spouses of Deployed Soldiers

Walk off the Wait:

September 11 – Old Pali Trail

Walk of the Wait with Blue Star Card on Tuesday, September 11 when we visit the Old Pali
Trail. This easy, 2 mile, stroller friendly hike heads downhill along an abandoned portion of the
Old Pali Highway built in 1932. The area is lush with vegetation that is slowly taking over the
road and features spectacular, unobstructed views extend across the vertical ridges, tall
forbidding peaks, and deep valleys of the sheer ali cliffs to the coastal plain and ocean below.
The lookout is often windy but the views are staggering. After our stroll we will stop for some
refreshing shaved ice so bring a little cash. Limited transportation will be leaving Schofield
Barracks at 8:30 am, registration is required. Call 655-0002 or email
