The island of Oahu is a hiker’s paradise — even with all the development — as the lush valleys of the Ko’olau Mountains are riddled with backcountry trails. The temperature here, even in winter, is right around 80°F (26°C), though the gentle trade winds help cool you off as you work up a sweat on the trail.
Given the perfect hiking conditions, many of Oahu’s public trails can be packed with groups of hikers. On this Oahu hiking tour, however, you’ll experience a part of Manoa Valley that’s only used by this tour, and trek across 75 acres (30 hectares) of rainforest full of waterfalls, streams, and pools. Hear forest birds chirping in the waving green treetops as you walk past ancient rock walls, and listen as your guide explains this valley’s cultural, and sacred past.
Expect to hike on a dirt trail for a total of 1.5 hours, and be sure to have your camera ready when you emerge at the thundering falls.
