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.

FYI if you take the left turn at the fork you get a bit more of a workout going up the mountain at a steeper incline.

Great hike! Did with both my children 2 and 9 months in baby carriers along with our dog! Great view as well! Perfect for beginners!

little difficult to find.
go past the yellow rail at the end of the street. theres a lot of private property so be sure to not trespass. stay on the paved road until you see a beat up metal mailbox on the right hand side. take a right there. the first half mile of the trail leads to the loop. loop can be taken left or right, left is steeper though.
definitely bring bug spray

It's definitely an easy hike. It's so easy that my husband and I decided to listen to a resident's advice and went on a side trail when we came down for a better view. (Definitely not recommended if you don't have any equipments to mark your path.) The side trail is a lot tinier than the main trail. Minor cuts and insects bites are expected since you are basically go through trees on a small path. There were orange marks and ropes tied to the trees to assist the hikers. At the end of the side trail, the hill gets so steep and you had to hold on trees to climb up. Anyway, I don't think we were on the top since we didn't see a better view, but we were lost as we couldn't find the tree that we used to come up(duh). So we were lost in the woods for 30 minutes finding the path to get back on the side or main trail. I was about to call 911. But my dear husband thought we could make it. So we basically rolled down trees to trees and eventually rolled onto the main trail. Mahalo.

Loved it. The trail is muddy for a short distance. Mostly dry well traveled with views and beautiful ferns along the way.
