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.

Super windy today and a quick rain shower when I got to the top of 1 so I wasn't comfortable doing peak 2 or 3 but the view from 1 was phenomenal. There is some climbing/scrambling so only attempt if you've got some experience and upper body strength.

Hiked to the first peak.. definitely worth it for the views! Certain areas require a bit of upper body strength so proceed with caution and know your limits. Take your time and you'll be fine! Love this one!

Hiking up to the first peak was a workout, but once you get to the top it has a great view of the east coast and the other two peaks. Making it to the second hike was fairly easy, but going down the second peak to the third was probably the most difficult part. Do be discouraged by the third peak! While it is dangerous, just take your time and you should be fine!

One of my favorite hikes. I love that there's a lot of spots where you get to use ropes. This hike had some amazing views from all three peaks.

Don't be intimidated by the spot that drops down where you need to use a rope to climb down. You can't see all the way down but I think it looks a bit scarier than it really is. Go for it! We saw a few people turn around at that spot and they definitely missed out. Make sure to wear gloves on this hike!!

BEYOND EPIC HIKE!!! This is probably my #1 in my top 5 so far. Pretty challenging due to so much climbing but so awesome. Made it to the 1st peak and then made the trek back due to rain. Worth every step. If your a climber you'll love this hike.

Watch where you park, I got a ticket for having the edge of my tire on the cement but oh well!

This is probably the most popular of the more "dangerous" hikes on the island (in reality every hike is dangerous). But man, is it worth the risk. This remains one of my favorite hikes on the island. Really incredible views of the windward side of the island and the Ko'olau Range. The hike itself is a blast with some good ridge hiking and rock climbing. Like any hike, know your physical limits and don't be afraid to turn back if you get sketched out. For a good perspective of what you might see on this hike, check out my blog post!
