This is a well marked trail that gets a bit tricky towards the top - I was by myself and needed a bit of help with a 10-15 foot vertical section that had old ropes and such to pull you up. Gets very narrow along...More

Stay away from this hike. They should call this place 'Death Peaks'. Have lost count of the number of hikers who have fallen to their death while on this trail.

Wow!! This hike was on my travel "to do" bucket list since first reading about it in 2010, and it was everything that I expected and more. I'm an avid hiker, and between the mud, the steep parts including serious rope climbs, and the heat/humidity,...More

I hiked to the first peak of Olomana Trail last month with my 20 year old son. It was a short, but very steep climb. It was fairly straight-forward in the beginning, but became much more technical near the top. Not for those afraid of...More

I loved this hike, as it was the most physically challenging experience of my life. I'm not in the greatest shape and don't rock climb, but I made it up at my own pace while my friends trekked ahead of me. I nearly died once...More

This is a great hike, starts with the rainforest forest and moves into the alpine-like (rhododendrons etc). I just went to the 1st peak and appreciated the folks who placed the ropes, which make this a much safer and enjoyable experience. It was just after...More

One bad step and you could fall to your death. Do not do this hike after its been raining. The view is truly breath-taking. It is my favorite hike but I will never do it by myself or in the wrong conditions.

Yes, it's a marvelous viewbut if you go past the first peak understand that every couple years someone slipd off of the razor ridge and dies in the fall.

You have to park about 1/2 mile from the entrance, but it is worth the hike. The first 3/4 of the hike is easy, nice beautiful trail. It gets a little challenging near the top of the first peak with steep climbs that in some...More

So many unexperienced hikers come to these trails wearing nothing but a pair of flimpsy sneakers or slippers (aka flipflops) and get stuck, needing to get rescued or get injured needing hospitalization. It rains a lot on the windward side so the trails are extremely...More

Get on H1 West and take the Pali Highway exit. Go over the mountain and through the tunnel. On the other side of the mountain, turn right onto Maunawili Road and immediately take the left following the sign to Luana Hills... More
