No short hike, it took us 2 hours and 40 minutes. We are not in great shape but have been on many hikes of varying degrees of difficulty on Oahu and Kauai. This has everything in it in the winter. Multiple stream crossings and streneous hiking over exposed roots (depending which way you go at the starting point) either up... 更多
I was lucky enough to be staying in Makiki and this trail was within walking distance. The trail guide calls this hike "a pleasant, shady loop" and rates it a moderate hike. I found it very challenging but well worth the effort. The trail rises up to 800 ft in elevation gain for a 1200 ft summit. In other words... 更多
Compared to the other trails, there is no grand view at the end of Moleka Trail. Instead, by hiking this trail, you will feel the elevation changes which will eventually lead you to a bamboo forest.
I was in the city without a car, and so had to get to hikes either on bus or by foot. Manoa falls was particularly muddy when I went, but this set of hikes wasn't crowded, nor was there much mud to speak of. (I did this hike in July.) I liked that there were many different options ... and... 更多

If you want to get into the rainforest, this is a great hike. It's not especially strenuous, but it can be muddy and slippery at times. When I went on a Thursday over the noon hour, there was nobody on the trail except me. Take water, your camera, a rainproof jacket or poncho and water resistant shoes!

This is an excellent hiking area in the mountains not far from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. Very beautiful with a remote feeling but only minutes from civilization. Trails are marked for different levels of ability. Easy to more difficult.
