    Drive up Round Top Drive to Pu'u 'Ualaka'a State Park to the summit where you find the Tantalus Lookout. Spectacular views on the entirety of Honolulu stretching from Diamond Head and across the city. Try to go on a nice day when the sky is blue and the sun is shining. The drive up takes about 15 minutes. I went around 11am on a Sunday morning and had no problems finding a parking spot. Hardly any others there at that time. Apparently, this is a favorite spot for car break ins so don't leave valuables visible, but I had no issues.

    Pu'u 'Ualaka'a State Park is where you find Round Top Drive that takes you up to the Tantalus Lookout. Spectacular panoramic views on the entirety of Honolulu stretching from Diamond Head and across the city. Try to go on a nice day when the sun is shining and there are blue skies. The drive up takes about 15-20 minutes. I went around 11am on a Sunday morning and had no problems finding a parking spot. Hardly any others there at that time. Apparently, this is a favorite spot for car break ins so don't leave valuables visible, but I had no issues. There are also many nice hiking trails in the area including the hike to Manoa Falls and the Makiki Valley Trail

    this is a kept secret ... go to the top of saint louis heights and enter the park. when the trade winds weaken and it gets hot in the diamond head, kaimuki and kahala areas a thousand feet below, it's cool up here... most people think of norfolk pines as house plants, they grow into majestic trees, towering over a hundred feet tall, with trunks 2 feet or greaer in diameter.... there's also iron wood pines that are enormous.... the trail to the summit of teh koolau rage starts here and manoa valley and palolo valley can be seen very well far below....
