Hau`ula Loop Trail is located near Hau'ula, Hawaii. The trail is great for hiking or trail running and normally takes around an hour. This trail is probably the lesser used Na Ala Hele trails, and with lots of shade, it's a good one to do any time, any season.

This is a great trail and the easiest of the 3 Hau'ula Trails.

There is LOTS of Mud, especially after a rain storm; make sure to have good shoes. Also there are TONS of mosquitoes, make sure you're wearing repellent or you will be eaten alive.

Really nice hike with some great mountain views once you get up on the ridge. Definitely muddy in the very shared spots but it was a nice way to feel like you're in the jungle on a mountain!

Good hike trough shifting vegetation and some nice views. Not hard but the elevation sure raise your heart rate at times. It was easy to follow the trail.

Completed both loops on the Hau'ula loop trail. Not much for scenic views on the top of the hill compared to other trails in Oahu, but none the less still beautiful scenery all around the jungle. Had to ford a little stream on the second loop trail, but not too dangerous at the time. The slight climbs were a decent workout. Slippery at times.

One of the more rewarding hikes on this side of the island. Beautiful views and panoramas. Some harrowing drops offs and heights along the way but not bad on this dry day. Steep inclines gave my heart a workout.

I loved this hike! The pine trees made me feel like I was back on the mainland. The views aren't as good as some other hikes, but well worth the effort.

It was ok. Good workout, but not worth it for the view.

Unlike the previous reviews, we did not find it to be muddy or buggy. There is a really awesome section that is heavy Cook Pine forest and the trail feels like a soft blanket of pine needles. We did this at 9am and 95% shaded. Really nice way to start the morning!! Sadly no waterfall. A couple of small pools but nothing you would want to get in to.

Beautiful day for a family hike. Trail was muddy and slick in a few spots. I'd agree with the other reviews that this hike is a little more difficult than we expected but not that bad.
