    Rob Tess reviewed Olomana Trail

    6 months ago

    Great hike! Very challenging for those of us who aren't super agile and who don't do this on a routine basis but the ropes help. Difficulty is certainly hard for most people. Danger (a rating that never seems to be discussed) is in my opinion moderate. The footing is firm 99% of the way. We only made the first peak, the last 30 minutes of reaching that point requires attention, agility, a bit of strength and quite a bit of nerve (or zero fear).
    One last thing, NOT GOOD FOR DOGS. Please act responsibly with your pets' lives. We saw a group with a dog and one of them smartly stayed back with the dog where the trail got too challenging. Pretty disappointing for the human I think.

    Wear long pants or at least bring them. In December be prepared for mud.
    The first 1.5 or even maybe 2 miles was excellent. Lots of fun, a couple challenges that didn't necessarily require the ropes but the ropes definitely added a measure of safety.

    We did this hike starting around 10am and I am doubtful we'd have made it out and back in anything under 6 hours. Probably closer to 8. We turned back at about 2.5 miles. By that time the mud and the thorny ferns made the hike not fun. It wasn't even hiking the last 3/4 mile before we called it. It was just walking up and down hills through mud and thorns. But then maybe I'm just a weenie
