    Jackie Velarde reviewed Crouching Lion Trail [CLOSED]

    2 months ago

    Awesome quick hike. We started climbing right after a light shower. Use the ropes, and do know you’re going to get muddy, but it’s not too bad at all. Took us 20 minutes to get to the top. When you get to the top (very obvious bc it is flat and looks like a scenic view, and there is a memorial there) you have two options. RIGHT - more difficult, but you can see the crouching lion. LEFT - hug the huge boulders and you can see the lookout point that overlooks the Kahana Bay. Super pretty on a clear day!

    Make sure you wear trail running shoes or lightweight hiking boots. When the sun is out, and you’re at the top - it’s toasty!

    I slid down on the way back for fun, but also for lower center of gravity (started to sprinkle).

    Have fun!!

    Great views along the way! Very easy to hike. Bring water as there is very little shade. Lots of little spots to stop and read about the history, and see extra things :)

    HPD was there this morning, and told us that this is now all privately owned land by the state. The HPD guy was nice about it, but told us it is strictly prohibited now. They stay there and actively cite trespassers. DO NOT do this trail.

    Currently this is blocked off as of the morning of 4/14/19.

    If you take the Nuunau Pali Drive, you can still hike Lulumalu waterfall hike (other-side of the Pali Hwy/ cannot access it via Pali Hwy).
