Kealia Trail Reviews & Ratings

  • Great trail away from the crowds. About 35 minutes up and 20 minutes down. Went during a little rain and it was beautiful. Lots of switchbacks, very easy hike with elevation gain.

  • Kealia trail never disappoints. An amazing and easy to moderate hike that provides priceless views of the North shore coastline. Suggest going in the morning before the sun gets too hot.

  • Moderate hike. Lightly traveled. We saw about 10 groups on A Sunday. Park in airport. We went in July and it was dry. In Winter I am sure it is muddy mess and slippery in some parts. Recommend trails shoes for summer and probably hiking boots for winter... Depending on your physical shape 40-60 minutes to the hike to first picnic bench. Our 16 year old boys got there in 40 minutes. My wife and I took better part of 60 minutes. I’d bring at least 32 ounces of chilled water per person. The trail keeps going past the picnic bench. You can look it up on All Trails. Attached some photos for you to get an idea of views. Enjoy!

  • Great hike. Took us 2 hours to go up and back. Beautiful views the whole way up and down. Plenty of parking at the airport.

  • Super good hike! Its so easy! Heres some tips: 1. Carry a small water bottle. 2. It only took us 40 minutes to reach the top. But if youre slow or not used to hiking, it may take an hour. 3. The view is beautiful. There are planes sometimes above you! 4. Theres a bench at the top so bring a snack to sit and eat after! 5. Have fun!
