A good break from Waikiki

Walked 3 peaks on our third day in town. It was amazing to get out of Waikiki and into something that felt lime Hawaii. Did all three peaks, third is exposed but definitely doable

I live at the base of Olomana Mtn and we frequently see a rescue helicopter picking up a hiker in trouble. This hike is not for everyone. The first peak is hard, and the other two peaks are not recommended due to the dangerous conditions.

We hit up the three peaks today and it was well worth it. Overall, we did about 10 km today and it did take us about 6 hours. That's from the parking all the way to peak 3 and back. It get's pretty sketchy in some places. You should be physically fit and have a good sense of you limitations.... More

You used to be able to park somewhat near the Royal Hawaiian Golf Club on Loop Road near the bridge, but they have put up a bunch of No Parking signs there now and tow your car (this is as of April 26, 2016). The gate guard at the Royal Hawaiian Golf Club was no help at all. I asked... More

We arrived at shortly after daybreak and made sure to park away from the "no parking" signs. We asked some workers in the area where we could park and they told us we could park on the main road. Make sure not to park on the sidewalk, park your vehicle totally on the grass. It was a short walk through... More

Great hike. Be sure to bring water and your A-game. The trail isn't exactly easy, Especially if it rained the day before. You will definitely call on your butt

The view was obviously a bit different 50 years ago. Careful, it can still get slippery when wet and at least 1 person has died falling off the mountain. Big Surprise hungh. Carry water! Use Sun screen!

Great hike, well worth doing. I have reservations about recommending it based on my experience of my vehicle being towed. I followed the tips here and from a different resource directing one to park along the road leading into the country club but well short of the bridge. There is fencing that is well signed that it is off limits... More

Quest fulfilled! Went with a Meetup group last weekend. Sure, I was one of the very last to make it to the top but so what?! I made it to peak 1 and got the views/pics. It's absolutely beautiful up at the top. This is a very, very steep trail once you break out of the lower forest area. Took... More

This trail gets the heart going right from the trail head and doesn't give up till your back. With a 1,643' peak height in just a 2 mile distance to the first peak it's a decent uphill climb. Once you climb 80% of the way up through the trees it starts to thin out and you get to the rope... More
