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.

Wear good shoes and bring water! Awesome hike that offers a big of everything. trail running, rock climbing, and gorgeous views. You can go all the way to 3rd peak if your adventurous or stop at the 1st peak and still enjoy a gorgeous view!

The first two peaks were fun, but I couldn't do the drop down for the third peak that's only doable by rope rappelling. Beautiful views after an hour of steep uphill calf-burning.

Nice hike. Not too difficult if you are in good shape and not afraid of heights.

No as hard as people make it seem if you are an avid hiker. There are some kinda difficult areas where you have to use ropes to climb and with steep drops on both side. You will have to be confident on your steps and have a strong grip to get through them. It can get pretty dangerous at times particularly if it's raining, which happens often on that side of the island. If you are afraid of heights then maybe this shouldn't be your first hike in Oahu. The views are incredible at full 360*. When it rains the peaks let out a lot of steam and it's pretty magical to watch.

Such an awesome hike/scramble. I thought the ropes to climb up looked sketch at first, but ultimately gave in and used them. I'm a pretty big guy so if they can hold me securely, you will be fine. I had this bee that kept following me near the first peak, On that last big scramble that had the thicker ropes. Was pretty irritating that said bee was trying to kill me.

I don't recommend doing this hike if you don't have any scrambling experience at all, as there are plenty of it. I'd say this can be a pretty dangerous hike if you're not in shape and don't hike often. Just take your time and enjoy the views. Also, bring a lot of water.

Excellent hike but for a moderate hiker there were some difficult spots. The views are amazing.
