Can be dangerous, but well worth it.

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... read more

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

This trail is the ultimate in trekking for most fit people . The sheer demand of this trail and the terrain is an unforgettable experience . 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

My Dad died here, today. I'm not posting to convince anyone not to do this, but be careful. 8 grandchildren, 3 children, the strongest wife ever, and a life full of friends are now hurting. Do not underestimate this mountain, and decide on your own if it is worth losing everything over. I'm sure the pictures are amazing, but ask... More

I took my 7-year old son on this hike. Not one of my better parenting decisions. He's a pretty experienced hiker and rock-climber for his age, and he handled the entire hike like a champ. But the areas near the top of the first peak were tricky and dangerous and my heart was pumping on the way down from them,... More

Trail is a little sketchy at times, but isn't that all part of a good hike?? We only did the first peak - took about 2 hours up and just over an hour down. There is lots of rock climbing involved. But wow - can't say enough about the amazing 360 degree view from the top of the first peak!... More
