Kuamo’o-Nounou Mountain Trail

Kuamo’o-Nounou Mountain Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This pleasant ramble heads through forest along the western base of Nounou Mountain (the Sleeping Giant). You can stop (or turn around) at a covered picnic table overlooking the valley to the misty Makaleha Mountains, or continue to a junction with the Nounou Mountain Trail West.

From there it’s a steep 1-mile climb to the head of the Sleeping Giant as an option. There are a variety of native and introduced flowers to enjoy and wild fruits to eat along the hike, which is popular with locals."
