    T Parker reviewed Wiliwilinui Ridge Trail

    almost 2 years ago

    A great, well-maintained and well-marked, trail into the heart of the Ko'olau Range. The first half of the trail is wide and relatively dry--when compared to the second-half. The second-half of the trail is exceptionally muddy, deeply rutted (despite the frequent stairs), and steep. Ropes aid the ascent, but hiking poles made the decent much easier.

    T Parker reviewed Kalauao Falls Loop Trail

    about 2 years ago

    A great hike that leads to a secluded waterfall below the popular Aiea Loop Trail (we reached the falls before 10:00 on a beautiful Sunday and had ten minutes to ourselves in the gorgeous pool before other groups started arriving). The trail is poorly maintained, requiring some minor acrobatics on the treacherous 600 foot descent into the valley, but is fairly easy to navigate.

    T Parker reviewed Kealia Trail

    about 2 years ago

    Kealia Trail has fantastic views of the entire North Shore (Waialua to Sunset Beach) and Makua Valley throughout the hike, but lacks a rewarding view at the summit. The trail has 19 switchbacks that make the climb manageable, even carrying a baby, and runs under moderate cover that provides some relief from the intense sun. Even so, bring plenty of water because the humidity makes this hike a sweaty one.

    If you plan on through-hiking Kealia Trail to Peacock Flats to camp, you must coordinate with Dillingham Airfield Security to leave your car in the parking lot overnight.

    An amazing, exposed and ungraded ridge hike, with phenomenal views of Diamond Head, Ka'au Crater, a waterfall, Honolulu, and the surrounding valleys. I would highly recommend starting early (to avoid the sun as there is limited overhead cover along the trail), check the forecast (avoiding heavy clouds/rain in the Ko'Olau Range), and wear long pants (as the uluhe ferns overrun the latter half of the trail).

    T Parker reviewed Waianae Kai Trail

    over 2 years ago

    A strenuous uphill climb with rewarding views of Waianae and the leeward coast when completed as outlined in Stuart Ball Jr's, "A Hikers Guide to Oahu." The trail was recently marked with purple markers (engineer tape and gatorade caps), which alleviated a lot of confusion as there are multiple side trails and hunting paths that can lead you astray.

    The first portion of the route follows a maintenance road past several water wells before the trail finally takes shape. The next mile aggressively climbs a spur to the summit of Kamaile'unu Ridge that requires the occasional use of ropes to negotiate some steeper and slicker portions of trail. Once on the ridgeline you have the ability to follow a animal fence towards the summit of Mt. Ka'ala with some rewarding views of the coastline to the west. To return, backtrack along the animal fence until you intercept the Kumaipo Trail, which we followed down a spur until we intersected with our original trail.

    Some portions of the trail were overgrown and have the potential to be extremely slick if it recently rained (in addition to being wet since you have to cross about half-a-dozen stream beds).

    T Parker reviewed Kuliouou Ridge Trail

    A beautiful and well maintained trail with fantastic views of southern Oahu landmarks, including Diamond Head, Koko Head, and the southern shoreline.

    T Parker reviewed Wahiawa Hills Trail

    over 2 years ago

    The Wahiawa Hills Trail is a decent hike with plenty of good views; however, the trail is extremely difficult follow with no markers, multiple side-trails, and overgrown portions. I recommended finding detailed trail directions and bringing them with you to alleviate some of the confusion. The stream crossings and views make the trail well worth the effort.

    over 2 years ago

    An easy and beautiful hike for the whole family along the leeward coast of Oahu. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen, as hikers are exposed to the sun for the duration of the hike. During our visit, we encountered plenty of wildlife, including Laysan Albatross and Monk Seals.
