“One of my favorite hikes in Oahu”

Kuliouou Ridge Hike
Ranked #71 of 332 things to do in Honolulu
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 4 August 2013

The views at the top are awesome. Reading previous posts, I didn't have any trouble finding my way. The elevation gain is decent and a nice work out. The trail is in the shade which was great since I didn't start up early and it was a hot day. There is a picnic area about half way up, which was a nice break. Most of my hikes are in the western US so the green vegatation was a welcome change. Caution: the driving directions were a little confusing, the clay steps can get a little slippery if wet, and the trail head is at the end of a residential area so parking can be a problem.

This hike is no joke. It's physically taxing but so worth it. I'm a cyclist but my legs, mostly my calves, were sore for 3 days after this hike. The views along the way and the payoff at the top was so worth it. Going back down was not easy either. You had to pay attention so as not to slip and slide on the steep parts. All in all, spectacular hike! Oh and you have to use Hiking Hawaii Cafe to guide you. They are the best!!!

This hike was advanced at times, mostly toward the top, but so worth it. Took a little over 3 hours, including resting time at the top, approximately 3 miles round trip. The terrain changed along the way and made it interesting, and views at the top spectacular.
