Aiea Loop Trial

Hawaii > Oahu > Central
Length4.5 mi
Elev. Gain800 ft
Difficulty2 / 5
Rating9 / 10
The Aiela Loop Trail is still a common favorite among hiking enthusiasts. At the very beginning of the trail, you will be met with an interesting variety of the flora of the island - eucalyptus, Norforlk and even the strawberry guava tress that grow in abundance here. If you are hiking during the summer, you can enjoy the tangy fruits of these trees.

The trail rises steeply upwards to a rocky clearing, from where you can get a good view of the city. After you cross the exposed ridgeline, you will come across a pair of electricity towers, before reaching another clearing from where you can view the entire mountain range.

Soon along the trail you will come across the Puu Uau, marked by the native Ohia and Koa tress. On the right you will reach a path that leads to the Koolau mountain range and the Aiea Ridge. However, you should keep following the trail. The path forks after reaching a corridor of pines. You should take the right path. Near the end of the trail, you will come across three steep switchbacks and a small and somewhat dry stream.

Best time to go
May to August
