Located in Kailua, Three Peaks is a wonderful hike with great views if you can make it to the top. The first peak's about 1.5 miles up with dropoffs on both sides. The next peak isn't as challenging but still an awesome view. The last peak should only be tried by experienced hikers.

This trail offers great views and a real sense of accomplishment when you're done after 3 peaks. It's not a casual walk in the woods, unless you are maybe a navy seal.

Gorgeous hike. One of the most lush and green in Oahu. Great for that "jungle hike" feel. Just talk to the attendant at the golf club gate if you can't find the trailhead.

A great workout overviewing windward Oahu and the Koolau. Some areas, might need to repel. All worth it in the end. I haven't made it to the third peak.

This trail was Awesome. It was not easy and you have to be sure footed. We saw may people stop at the first pike but it is worth going all the way.
Be sure to wear good shoe and carry extra water.

This was one of the hardest trails I've done in Hawaii. Only a few more trails beat out this one in terms of difficulty. This trail scales with increasing difficulty, starting from a brisk incline to climbing with three points of contact to rope climbs and then rappelling and more rock climbing. It also requires sturdy footing between the 2nd and 3rd peak as one misstep will send you off the side. I nearly fell off myself if it weren't for a tree branch I happened to be grabbing - but then I also do not recommend climbing when the ground is wet. If anyone is interested in the details of my hike, it can be found here: https://mrwordpressor.wordpress.com/2016/10/15/olomana-three-peaks-hike-oahu-hawaii/

Enjoy it, do not bring pets as it is prohibited and also unwise. Baby carriers are not recommended either past the 2nd peak. Good luck and have fun! The closest parking is across from the bus stop but it can only hold 5-6 cars so get there early as with every trail in Hawaii!

Nice trail that I would rate class 3. There are some class 5 moves but you have a rope to hang onto decreasing the difficulty. It was a nice hike with good views. Legal parking is near the bus stop.

Great hike. We had to park on a side street, Auloa Rd and walk 0.75 miles to get to the trailhead. We were thinking it would be muddy from the reviews but was nice and dry. It took us about 90 minutes to get to the top of peak one. Started to rain on the way down, got lucky as it was getting slippery as we finished. We only saw 3 people all day.

Hiked with a big group today, always challenging and never disappoints. Trail is currently dry so if your thinking about going now is the time!

Amazing hike, bring a decent camera since your phone camera can't do justice.
