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.

Did it last Octorber (2016) and it was awesome! Only reached the first peak because we started late afternoon and didn't want to walk in the rain forest when it's dark....it was a great workout and make sure you are okay with the height before you start to climb. Thought a good pair of hiking shoes were necessary until saw a few folks with bare feet....the view at the first peak was rewarding and definitely worthy it.

mostly covered under forest, that changes in vegetation with elevation. very cool features and trees along the way. supposedly you can park BEFORE the white bridge leading into the Royal Hawaiian golf course, but there are no parking signs everywhere. I found a spot in the grass across the street from the golf course entrance near the bus stop.
very rewarding views, I made it to the first peak, enjoyed the views with a snack, and made it back down in 3 hrs.

gorgeous trail, the view is the best we've seen yet. We didn't risk the 3rd peak (heard the rocks have been getting much more loose, ropes more frayed), and we would have been just fine stopping at the 1st (the highest peak) but getting to the 2nd was pretty fun! My husband is terrified of heights, so he had a little bit of a hard time with how high we were and small the trail was but after a while he got used to it. What a trooper!

Most underrated trail on Oahu, this trail is easily the most fun and the most exciting hike on the island. Well maintained and ropes, ropes and more ropes!
Just be prepared to climb and rock scramble, stunning views from all 3 peaks and the keyhole! You guys just have to take a picture in the keyhole.

Great hike, you can read about it elsewhere, but let's talk about parking. The person at the gate at the golf course told us "turn around and you can park at the end of this road". We went to a spot where there were no signs, right where she told us, and we got towed. $220 and a drive into town. So be warned, don't park anywhere close to Loop road. No aloha from the golf course or towing place.
