September Hike

Kuliouou Ridge Trail

 

 

Kuliouou Ridge Trail

Last Sunday of the Month

September 30th

Difficulty: Intermediate

LENGTH: 5 miles round trip

Time: Going at an easy pace the entire hike will take about 4 hours and you’ll cover about 5 miles.

Elevation gain: 1,600

Challenges: Steep, Stairs.

Stuff to Bring: Water, Shoes with decent grip, **Dog friendly**, something to swim in, towel.

HOW TO GET THERE: From Waikiki, take Kalanianaole Highway toward Hawaii Kai. In Hawaii Kai, turn left onto Kuliouou Road. Take a right at Kalaau Place and park toward the end of the road. The trailhead is just beyond the cul-de-sac.

Few trails on Oahu are as well maintained with such stunning summit views as the Kuliouou Ridge Trail. It begins in Hawaii Kai at the end of Kalaau Place, and ascends roughly 1,700 feet over 2.5 miles for a 5-mile round-trip hike. While rated as medium-level difficulty, it is fairly strenuous and should only be attempted by able-bodied individuals and dogs.The rocky terrain and steep inclines make it a perfect workout for your legs and buns. You’ll notice that the environment changes as you hike to the top (there are three different stages).The trail is maintained by the Nā Ala Hele program and the Sierra Club, so it’s easy to navigate to the top. It does get difficult to see the turns while you’re hiking up the switchbacks. Plenty of switchbacks!!

 

            Dog friendly so feel free to bring your best friend, however please keep him/her on a leash for other dogs will be on the trial as well.
