My 10 Favorite Oahu Hikes

Oahu is an amazing place to hike and the terrain is super diverse – everything from hot, dusty deserts to cool, muddy rainforests. My favorites are the view hikes – I just love climbing ridges (although, waterfalls aren’t half-bad either). And, lucky for me, the windward side has some of the best hikes on the island. To illustrate:

Here are my 10 favorite hikes (so far) on Oahu:

  1. Haiku Stairs or “stairway to heaven”
  2. Olomana
  3. Mariner’s Ridge
  4. Lanikai Pillboxes
  5. Kaena Point Nature Reserve
  6. Makapu’u Point Lighthouse
  7. Diamond Head Crater
  8. Kaiwanui Marsh
  9. Abandoned Rader Tower near the H-3
  10. Maunawili Falls
