  • This is a beautiful hike with some amazing views of the valleys and some amazing scenery where the red soil has been washed away to look like a different planet. Be aware though, it was washed away by...  read more »
  • I try to get on this trail once every 2 to 3 months for exercise. Challenging obstacles for the novice hiker. Hard to get lost if you stick to the trail. There are a number of off shoots that lead to ...  read more »
  • The Aiea Loop trail is not as well-known as the more touristy nature spots such as Manoa Falls or Waimea Valley, and as such there are some noticeable differences. The drive up is through a working-cl...  read more »
  • The path could get really muddy and have many puddles after a rainy day. I was going there hoping to spot some native birds. I at times heard birds chirping but only got to see white rumped shama. Even though I got my feet wet and shoes covered by muds I enjoyed this hiking. I spotted an interesting RING tree (curly tree that looks like a O). A few trees look like eucalyptus trees. Along the hiking, there's occasionally citrus smell and herbal smell, very soothing. Probably toward the last 1/3 path, there is a small steep slope to's raining and we did not wear right shoes but luckily 2 ladies kindly worked on the slope making it easier to climb for us. I would like to re-visit on a sunny dry day and hopefully to do some birds photographs.
  • One of the best afternoons hiking I have had in ages. Yes it was wet, yes it rained and yes the track was very muddy. The views were worth it and not just the lookouts, the different vegetation as you make your way around. The trail is suffering like the rest of the park from a lack of maintenance. Much like home park budgets have been hit hard so finding the resources for trail clearing is difficult. Realistically there was much to worry about. I recommend parking at the lower carpark and walking up the road to the entry. It's a dull slog up a bitumen road so best done first. Also the trail seem to flow better this way in my opinion. Good shoes are a must, runners might not cut it in the wet.
  • Great hike for those of all ages. Total length is 4.8 miles. If you start at the upper trail head, the hike is mostly downhill. Watch for rainy conditions as it can get pretty nasty.
  • Beautiful waterfall if you know how to get there that is. Also nice walk good for the whole family👨👩👧👦👶🐶
  • Very nice 2-3 hour hike! Plan on getting muddy seams this place is always a little or a lot muddy. Awesome views and mostly shaded so it's never really too warm
