November Hike

Lulumahu Falls Trail

 

 

Lulumahu Falls Trail

Last Sunday of the Month

  • Distance: 2.2 miles

  • Elevation Gain: 702 feet

  • Difficulty: Moderate

  • Time: 2-3 hours

  • Facilties= No     

From Honolulu just drive up the Pali Highway, exit on to Nuuanu Pali Drive on the right.  Follow this beautiful road to where it ends at the intersection with the Pali Highway.  On the right, the dirt lot can be pulled into for parking. Signs for the Nuuanu public hunting area unit E. 
The Nuuanu Valley is well known for being very lush and this lushness is because of the amount of rain it receives every year.  Because of this rain, there is a lot of mud to deal with be ready to get muddy and wet. This Adventure will take us tramping through the jungle to find the waterfall, the scenic lakeside views of the Ko’olau Range, and the surprisingly beautiful Lulumahu Falls.  The Lulumahu Trail is not a hike I recommend for the casual hiker, but people who enjoy hiking off the beaten path will really enjoy it.

Ride share meets at the zoo parking lot across the street from Hulas at 9am or Meet us at the trail head by 10 am.

DECEMBER HIKE

Kaʻena Point Trail

Trail Length: 3.5 miles 

Terrain: Open Coastline 

Elevation Gain: Negligible

Difficulity level: Easy

The trail to Ka‘ena Point follows an old railroad bed and former dirt road that ran along the westernmost point of O‘ahu. The trail leads to Ka‘ena Point Natural Area Reserve, a remote and scenic protected area harboring some of the last vestiges of coastal sand dune habitat on the island, and home to native plants and seabirds. Whales frequent this shoreline during the winter months.

The weather is usually sunny and hot, and it can be windy – a hat, sunscreen, and plenty of water are recommended. Allow 1 to 3 hours depending on your pace. Stay away from the wave-exposed coast unless you are familiar with hazardous ocean conditions. Sorry no animals allowed. 

As usually we will meet at the zoo parking lot at 9, However because of the location we will start the hike at 1030 at the trailhead.
