Bold Hike through Dangerous Terrain

First off, this hike is hard. By hard I mean using ropes, crawling on all fours, 45-degree grades, and 1000 foot sheer drop off hard. To get here, one must drive to Wai'anae and... read more

First off, this hike is hard. By hard I mean using ropes, crawling on all fours, 45-degree grades, and 1000 foot sheer drop off hard. To get here, one must drive to Wai'anae and then take Wai'anae Valley Road to the end, where one will find a parking lot. From there it is about 1.5 miles of walking up a... More

The waianae mountains are onthe dry side of the island. Best way to see them is by driving by. You can see them on boat rides, the beach and many other ways.

These mountains are so beautiful, and even more so if viewed from the water while kayaking or snorkeling off the Waianae Coast.

Beautiful to look at--- stunning fluted cliffs..... Too bad much of it isn't accessible due to military installations.....

A top the mountains or anywhere above the ocean is a magnificent view. Hiking in Hawaii is one of my favorite things to do here. You never know what you may see... the birds and flowers and the scents of fruits! Not very touristy but a MUST if you go to Hawaii. This and many other hikes available FREE of... More

I'm in love with this mountains. Because they are on dry side of island, they are not totally covered with vegetation, so they look very different from the ones on Koolau range. You can see the rock formation, and the view changes through out the day depending on how the light reflects on them. So when you are at the... More

Very pretty - on the west side it's drier and looks a little barren - on the west side it is greener.

This area is way off the beaten track. It is pleasant just to drive through or take some of the back roads off of Farrington Highway. As you head north of Makaha it opens up and is really breathtaking in its own way.

What an amazing and difficult hike. The Ka'ala Trail in the Waianae Mountain Range was a challenge but well worth it. Pack plenty of water and snacks/food to sustain you for the climb. At times it's more than hiking and actual climbing. You'll get to see many different types of vegetation from tall grass fields to guava tree forest to... More
