Nounou Mountain (Sleeping Giant) East Professional Review and Guide

"The Sleeping Giant is the distinctive mountain behind Kapa’a and Wailua. The high (southernmost) point is his forehead; the next point to the north is his chin.

The trail climbs up to his thighs and torso, makes a sharp turn, and goes up to his chest, where you can end the hike at a picnic spot or scramble all the way up to the summit. It offers great views and a good steady workout. It’s popular with locals and tourists because it’s so convenient to the Coconut Coast."
