This is hands down the best thing to do while on Oahu. You can make an entire day of it if you choose. The hike begins through a creepy abandoned neighborhood. It is unclear who lived there and how long ago. Shortly after, you will break a sweat as the grade increases. Fortunately, there was extensive shade (sometimes to the... More

Olomana is a great trail; however, beware if you are afraid of heights or are an inexperienced hiker. The trail goes steep quickly and is a little wet even if it hasn't been raining. There are a few sections where you have to navigate your way up some rocks but the tree roots are your best friends. There is one... More

I have hiked this mountain many times and every time I go back, I always think to myself "it's not that hard". Yes it is. The beginning of the hike is through a forest which is usually muddy because there is not a lot of sunlight. The rest of the hike is all uphill with many vertical parts. If you... More

First things first - when you park your car near the golf club entrance take ALL valuables with you. We made the mistake (through not enough backpack space) to lock our wallets in the boot (trunk for the Americans) out of sight. Doors and boot locked - check. We came back to our car and we had been broken into,... More

I have completed hiking/climbing the three peaks of Mt. Olamana six times, and reaching the summit of the first peak over thirty times in the last decade; that I've resided on Oahu! Trailhead Directions: Get on the Pali Hwy (Rte 61 North) heading towards Kailua. Go thru the Pali tunnels. After proceeding all the way down the mountains, and before... More

This is a tricky hike, and one could say more like rock climbing! If you have a big fear of heights, then you might want to pass. Parts of the trail are muddy and have quite a few tree roots. The higher you climb, it gets more challenging. But, after climbing with the ropes, the top is quite rewarding. The... More

Well, If you're afraid of heights — think before going to this trail. The first peak is really high and sometimes you'll have to climb up on the rocks. Actually the first peak is not the hardest to reach, but the third is. So the first one was enough for us :) If you decided to go, it would be... More

This is a great walk but is challenging - it does have a fair amount of what the locals call "bouldering" which involves some fairly strenuous climbs and ropes. The first peak is purportedly the highest and the last portion is pretty tough, certainly not for the faint hearted. Only one of our party continued on and the second peak... More

Parking is before the bridge outside the golf course. Then just follow the road to the trail head. About half mile past the guard shack and there is a sign to mark the trail. The hike immediately starts on an incline. This incline gradually gets steeper as you go higher. There's rocks, roots and is a little bit muddy. If... More

Be prepared to a really hard climb right up the mountain, letting no traverses but a steep straignt elevation. Start early (7 am) to avoid heat and crowds of people struggling through the trail. Take a lot of water or isotoner - you'll be sweating as hell! In the end you'll be rewarded with breathtaking views!!! Don't go if you're... More
