My favorite hike in Oahu

Parking: Park before the no parking sign/before the bridge, which is just before the Royal Hawaiian Golf Club. Trust me, it'll all make sense when you get there. We also confirmed... read more

Did this hike with my husband and son. Very slippery and muddy. Made it to first summit and that was enough. Did not trust the ropes. Trail is not maintained. One should be pretty physically fit and not afraid of heights. Wear good hiking shoes. Don't bring children too dangerous.

Parking: Park before the no parking sign/before the bridge, which is just before the Royal Hawaiian Golf Club. Trust me, it'll all make sense when you get there. We also confirmed with a cop that it was okay to park there. After you park, walk towards the golf club. Pass the guard and gate, just wave at them. They already... More

spectacular views of the windward side of Oahu, but extremely dangerous climbing (especially in wet conditions), and NOT for the inexperienced or children. That steep drop-off on both sides of the trail in the picture is not an exaggeration. Also parking is risky as there have been numerous break-ins.

This hike is well known among the locals - this hike has a higher amount of deaths reported. From a 19 yr old getting lost and never found, to a friend trailing behind and suddenly missing, to slipping from loose rock and falling, off duty firefighter dying after a fall - please, please be careful. If you are not fit... More

Don't fall off the ridge, you WILL die. Even the basic Olomana hike is too much for most people, ropes? Really? Oahu is composed primarily of volcanic material and totally unsuited to hiking that hasn't been mapped and vetted by experts. Stay on the trail, don't go where it is kapu, and don't expect kid gloves if you do encounter... More

This is a great hike. We just did this last week, and it was beautiful. The greenery and scenery is so lush and vibrant, the pictures just pop. The hike itself was a little over 3 hours for all 3 peaks for our moderately fast group. I have read that 3 people have died on this hike in the last... More

The patches of the slippery rough stretches are challenging at times but , the view of the surroundings are rewarding and breath taking ! Carry enough water there is none available . Also ,... More

Took my boyfriend and I about 3 hours return trip. Well worth the hike...the hike included a bit of rope work and slight rock climbs. There is a boulder with rope just before the top. Only did the first peak, but was is highest peak. Had been raining the morning we went, which made us slow down due to the... More

Mount Olomana is beautiful, but there are 3 different steep areas, that can and have been deadly. Don't want to scare anyone, but weather conditions MUST be checked before you hike.Would recommend going in the morning, our afternoon weather at Olomana is about a 85% chance of rain and it moves in FAST.Keep safety in mind as priority 1, be...

4-5 hours roundtrip...strenous and involves lots of climbing...totally worth it! On the way down / out though, you cannot wait to reach the exit...LOL
