  • No short hike, it took us 2 hours and 40 minutes. We are not in great shape but have been on many hikes of varying degrees of difficulty on Oahu and Kauai. This has everything in it in the winter. Mul...  more »
  • I find go here if I was looking for the new Oahu hiking location. As it turns out, very close from the Waikiki travel is by car, but not to go and feeling. Because this time is also the effect of the rainy season, but the trail almost mud, puddles, streams across many tree roots, mosquitoes in many feet is necessary to be prepared to surf. Far more places are within driving distance of the first parking spaces are available. Parked out there walking, went to trail. Have gates that keep the car, on the way back I realized that anyone is put in the car. Toilet and brush is the entrance is located. We've counterclockwise. And muddy feet from the beginning is foreboding, was disgusting, but is hitting. Googlemap that then their position along the way still 1/4 minutes. Less than do the nasty in or turn back and wondered if he was. To exploit it, prepared for dirty shoes and legs if you come is fun. However, unbearable repeatedly attacked by hordes of mosquitoes, no, I wasn't. Even hotter long pants are required. It is questionable how much work repellant. And couldn't afford a view is in fact not feet look too much to care about. Lush trees, pure white sky is looked up during a break on the way, rain, too much and didn't see anything. Way to go around in four adults (two 30s 70s 2) took over 3 hours. From the mountain front has a visitor center, so make sure to go. It seems much more higher level trail. People used to climb from the usual may become a new discovery of Hawaii.

Where to stay in Honolulu

Most of Honolulu's luxury hotels and oceanfront condos are located in Waikiki, the city's most popular neighborhood. Staying in this area keeps you within walking distance of one of the world's finest beaches, but it also means paying a bundle for your room and board. To avoid high rates and big crowds, consider the budget hotels outside Waikiki's busiest areas. Smaller hotels just a short drive from the city's beaches offer comfortable rooms and good food at a fraction of the price of their Waikiki equivalents.
