The Honolulu Mauka Trail System is one of the best maintained trails in the Oahu Island. The trail system can be accessed easily and is a favorite among local as well as amateur hikers. This interlocking system of trails consists of a number of trails - each representing a new and interesting element of nature.

The system consists of the Kaneaole Trail (full of indigenous plants), the Makiki Loop Trail (full of Hawaiian trees with vines and rocky paths), the Moleka Trail (with a beautiful corridor of bamboo), the Manoa Cliff Trail (with a cool and dark forest and patches of strawberry bamboo). Avoid this trail during winter. Do not miss to take a view of the beautiful Mania Cliff from the elevated bench here.), the Puu Ohia Trail and the Kakawahine Trail (with a protected snail habitat.)

The Honolulu Mauka Trail System is indeed special as it offers innumerable hiking possibilities for the hiking enthusiast. You will be treated to views of native birds, marine life and even the numerous insects and parasites of the region.
