The trail project originally included informational signage but was expanded in 2007 through an HTA award to Tri-Isle and Na ala Hele to install a viewing platform, boardwalk and native plantings at the trailhead near Kahakuloa town. Plans were prepared, a shoreline Survey and E/A, completed and DLNR finalized the SMA. Construction on the project began in August 2008 and was completed by early September. Native species were planted in the fall along the side of the sidewalk corridor. The project is located at Papanalahoa Point on Honoapiilani Highway approximately 2 miles northwest of Kahakaloa town.
