Haleʻiwa Pick-Up Site (Hiking Tours)

The pick-up site where our tours begin and end is located at the North Shore Marketplace (66-250 Kamehameha Hwy.) in the heart of historic Hale’iwa (Haleiwa) Town (See map below).  It is Haleʻiwaʻs (Haleiwa) largest shopping mall and can easily be found on the mauka (mountain) side of Kamehameha Hwy (Hwy 99), the “main street” that runs through town.  There is ample parking at the mall and public restrooms.  When entering the parking lot head to the right hand section and park in the rear – Youʻll see the Pinzgauer ready to go!
