This is my favorite Oahu hike. The ocean and tide pools are amazing and your walking right along the mountainside. We hiked from Ka’ena State Park and went all the way out to the western-most point of Oahu. Free, ample parking is available in the park at the end of the road. Lock you car. Closed toe shoes are a must as the trail is rocky. Bring plenty of water as it is a hot, dry hike. The trail is 99% flat with one up-and-around that is a bit challenging (see photo).
I’m seeing a lot of reviews about the houseless community on the trails. To the folks leaving those reviews, are you doing anything to help?
I enjoy riding this trail w the 9 year old that I mentor. Beautiful views of the harbor, cool neighborhoods, old farms, houseless communities… golf courses (the irony). I’ve never once felt anymore unsafe then anywhere else in Pearl City.
Highly recommend for a unpolished representation of this beautiful place that we get to live.
A nice safe route (even in the dark) to get to Haleiwa town center. The bike trail ends at the traffic circle before you get to Haleiwa but there is sufficient pavement on the left hand side to allow you to cycle safely from that point into Haleiwa. Best to take it easy, as we encountered quad bikes, motocross bikes, cyclists, joggers and pedestrians along the trail.
We walked from North Shore trailhead to Kaena Point. Easy walking but recommend closed toe shoes and plenty of water. We were lucky enough to see the Laysan Albatross performing their mating dance and soaring through the skies. At the Point we saw three Hawaiian Monk seals and another had just landed at 10-minute beach. With mountains on one side and big surf on the other it was a breathtaking walk, we’ll worth the effort.
Beautiful oceanfront park with awesome views, it is very popular with locals. There are many paths, however some have holes, cracks, etc. The beaches off protected ocean swimming.
Great trail for those just out for an adventurous afternoon walk. The old railroad was turned into a hiking path that varies in width from 4 to 12 feet. A little bit rugged in some places as volcanic boulders litter the path. I think the park people do that on purpose to keep trucks out. In one place the trail is washed out and a sort of billy goat trail gets you by for a hundred yards. There are no railings or ropes along the cliffs so watch where your children are running around and don’t back up to get that perfect shot. That said, I saw kids as young as 7-8 on the trail. Mainly level the whole way. From the parking lot at the end of Rt 93 it’s about 2.25 miles to the point. Bring water and wear a hat. Don’t forget your sunscreen as you’re getting the rays directly plus indirectly off the water. You’ll have fun on this walk so enjoy the day!
This used to be such a nice, safe ride, but with all the homeless and increase in crime, do not recommend this pathway to the East Loch. You are better off riding at Ala Moana, but then again, it is quite crowded with tourists.
Kailua and Kane'ohe have some nice areas to ride. Happy Trails.
It's my first time out mountain biking but I found this trail too difficult for a bike. At least with my level of experience. It looks easily walkable.
I tracked the distance on my run and only came up to 7 miles not sure how they came up with 10. Did encounter three areas with a handful of homeless, but they kept to themselves, no biggy. There are about 3 miles with absolutely no shade, so the heat at 4pm was a challenge. The are around The Neil Blaisdell park was very pretty even had a water fountain. The best thing about this trail is that it allowed me to run from work all the way to Waipio.
I started by the entrance by the base. The very first thing I have noticed was the homeless camps set up under an underpass. I kept riding a few more miles thinking it would improve and it was like that the whole way, nothing but homeless camps, sewage, garbage piles and very rough pavement. I was on a penny board and there was some spots I had to get off and walk a couple hundred yards until I found a decent patch of pavement. There was nothing scenic about this trail.
I commute from Royal Kunia to the airport, picking up the PHBP at the Waipahu dump to the end at Kam Highway near Pearl Harbor Memorial. As others have said scenery is not great, there are a couple homeless camps (some have been decorated really nice), a lot of street urchins fishing next to the contaminated seafood signs and of course a small sewage plant. It is not for sightseers although it does take you near the Navy's boneyard in Middle Loch if you like old ships.
But the trail is generally safe, most peds will give way if you ring a bell and it makes quick work of the worst transit chokepoint on the island. My ride is often as fast as a drive would be when traffic is backed up.
We parked at the Pearl Harbor lot and tried to ride, we went past the marina to where it said there was a bike path, but the gate was closed and the military people that were there told us that it didn't open until 1500 and that you needed ID to get through. We didn't ask if we needed military ID, but that would have been a good question. This web site needs to be updated, we had driven from the windward side and were looking forward to a good ride on a bike path.
