Hau'ula Loop Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"There is a lot of tropical fruit to eat in summer along this trail, as well as a great variety of scenery. Best of all, there are no crowds up here on the windward coast, far from busy Honolulu. Walk straight up the road past a gate (the road on your right that curves sharply uphill is a private driveway).
At about 0.1 mile is the actual signed trailhead. (You will pass another, unmarked path heading uphill to the right before this, but this is also private property. Stay on the road until you see the trail sign.) The forest floor is carpeted with the unusual laua’e fern, whose fronds are so broad you might not recognize it as a fern until you see the spores on their backs."
