Kealia Trail, Honolulu Reviews

  • Definitely enjoyed this hike. Good for beginners and groups. There are winding paths that lead you up the side of the hill with breathtaking views of the North Shore so you're not overwhelmed as you hike to the top (picnic table). I took a detour near the top (trees) and climbed up the rock wall instead of taking the path towards the picnic table. There's a sweet swing, tied to a tree, if you take this route. It's not for the faint of heart but a nice surprise. As you go further up the hill, through the trees, in the clearing you will see the picnic table to your right. I went a little further, all the way to the next trail, and the reviews are true - not much to see after the picnic table. Hope this helps and enjoy your hike!

  • Beautiful hike! Up the kealia you see the Oceanside, beautiful trail. Not muddy, didn’t rain before we came. Bring water if you plan on going past the picnic table. The trail changed to more of a forest 🌳and was so quiet and nice, steady incline the whole way up. Was a hard hike past the table. Was dying, bring lots of water if planning on going. We got out of the truck at 0650 and didn’t get back until about 1100. So tired. So worth it.

  • Truly a medium challenge hike that any able bodied person can accomplish. Breathtaking views of the North Shore when you reach the top make the climb well worth the sweat and the pain.

  • A great trail for perfect views without killing yourself. It starts and ends shaded with a slight incline, the middle up to the picnic table is a little more inclined and in sunlight. I’m not sure if it is all day everyday, but we got to see skydivers taking flights for the few hours we were on the mountain.

  • Crazy track for mountain biking. Double black diamond for certain. Steep rocky climb for an intense downhill run.
