Kuli'ou'ou Ridge Trail

Kuli'ou'ou Ridge Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This is a beautiful, though often wet hike to the top of the Ko’olau Mountains. If the sun is out, you will be grateful for the fact that it is shady almost all the way to the top. There are spectacular views out over Koko Head, Koko Crater, and the ocean.

Pass the stone barrier marked Kuli’ou’ou Reservoir, sign in on the sheet in the mailbox to your left, and follow the clearly marked trail northward into the valley. In 0.2 miles the trail splits. Take the right fork, which heads uphill (northeast) toward the ridge (the Kuli’ou’ou Valley Trail continues straight ahead or north) At the split is a pair of boot brushes for you to clean your boots before and after your hike. Hawai’i has a terrible problem with introduced weeds, many arriving on hikers’ shoes."

Best be ready for mud in December - very slick but the view at the top is worth it!

Great view on the hike. Not bad up until the steep part after the park bench. It was a little steep so pace yourself throughout the hike... Otherwise, well worth it!
