This is by far one of our favorite hikes, very challenging and rewarding once you reach the first peak. We decided to hold off on going to the other two peaks as both of us need new sneakers and weren't willing to chance it. If you are afraid of heights this is not the hike for you, there are certain... More

I have done both Olomana and the Stairway to Heaven and I cherish this hike 10x more than my Stairway hike. Anyone can climb stairs, but not everyone can do this hike. If you are an adventurer and up for a challenge, this is the best hike you can do on Oahu. Trail head We found the trail head on... More

I actually hiked this trail in June 2014. I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into; I just remember telling the crew that I wanted a challenge and oh dear, it was. I hadn't hiked in a while and thought hiking with Army and Marine men was a good idea. I'm not sure what I was thinking. It was... More

I live at the base of Olomana Mtn and we frequently see a rescue helicopter picking up a hiker in trouble. This hike is not for everyone. The first peak is hard, and the other two peaks are not recommended due to the dangerous conditions.

Walked 3 peaks on our third day in town. It was amazing to get out of Waikiki and into something that felt lime Hawaii. Did all three peaks, third is exposed but definitely doable

We hit up the three peaks today and it was well worth it. Overall, we did about 10 km today and it did take us about 6 hours. That's from the parking all the way to peak 3 and back. It get's pretty sketchy in some places. You should be physically fit and have a good sense of you limitations.... More

You used to be able to park somewhat near the Royal Hawaiian Golf Club on Loop Road near the bridge, but they have put up a bunch of No Parking signs there now and tow your car (this is as of April 26, 2016). The gate guard at the Royal Hawaiian Golf Club was no help at all. I asked... More

We arrived at shortly after daybreak and made sure to park away from the "no parking" signs. We asked some workers in the area where we could park and they told us we could park on the main road. Make sure not to park on the sidewalk, park your vehicle totally on the grass. It was a short walk through... More

Great hike. Be sure to bring water and your A-game. The trail isn't exactly easy, Especially if it rained the day before. You will definitely call on your butt

The view was obviously a bit different 50 years ago. Careful, it can still get slippery when wet and at least 1 person has died falling off the mountain. Big Surprise hungh. Carry water! Use Sun screen!
