There's a small parking lot nearby where you can park however, this area fills up quick on weekends. The trail to the first peak is easy and gives you a great view of the surrounding area. The second peak is also easily accessible from here. Descending the second peak is where things get more difficult. It's steep descent with a... More

I was very nervous to do this hike after reading all the reviews on it! But in the end I decided that I could make my own decisions and would just stop when I felt unsafe. Boy am I glad I made that decision. What a hike! I only did the first peak - the reviews on the 2nd &... More

If you aren't an advanced hiker, it's okay. It's more mind over matter. Not something I would bring kids to. As far as safety is concerned, you should expect to climb a lot of ropes up and down steep cliffs. I'm not joking. You kind of feel like you're rock climbing at some points. That being said, the view is... More

I should start by saying that this hike is not for beginners . . . but you also don't need to be an expert. This hike is challenging, and will probably take the average hiker about 4 hours, depending on whether you choose to hit all three peaks. The challenge is part of the fun though. I can honestly say... More

Difficult but exciting hike, with fabulous view. The hike started off as a bit of a muddy trail, (after you park your car prior to the golf course, and walk up the paved road to the start of the trail), then you get to the narrow steep portion of the trail. My heart was going, and was a bit dismayed... More

Well worth the effort and the long hike from the parking. You can't park on the golf course so you must walk in. The gate guard filled our water bottles from a spicket on the way back. Don't wear running shoes... I recommend boots....

This trail is dangerous. I can see these peaks from my front room window. I also watch the tax payer funded helicopter rescues. It can rain up to 3 inches per hour making the hike impossible. There are vertical drops of hundreds of feet on either side of the trail. The trail is rock and mud. Many people have died... More

this is a great hike with great rewards when you reach the top. the views are amazing. 360 degrees of stunning landscape. the hawaiian mountains are just so impressive with all their lush vegetation despite the steepness of the grade. the only thing I did not like was the parking. there is no designated parking lot or restrooms.

For some, this is an easy hike, but for others, it can be challenging; steep inclines, large boulders and narrow paths, but the view at the top is wonderful.

My wife and I hiked the Olomana Three Peaks Trail on a cloudy day in late March. It had rained the night before, so there was a lot of mud and some slippery conditions at the start of the trail. We greatly enjoyed this hike, even though we found it to be quite arduous. We only hiked to the first... More
