What does Ke Ala Hele Makalae add to our community?

 "Absolutely loved the video of the path and will share it with my family and friends both here and on the mainland.  Bill and I have been walking segments of it to help him recover from his lung procedure, and I hope he learns to love walking and becomes addicted to the scenery.  He's not a natural exerciser, so maybe the beauty of the path and the friendliness of fellow users will hook him.
