Hiking is one of my favorite ways to spend free time. Because of that, I’ve enjoyed a lot of the hikes on Oahu, however, Kealia Trail has become my go-to.
1. It’s beautiful
2. It’s shaded
3. It’s a good workout
4. It fits into your day
6. The beach
Location: North Shore, Oahu
Trail length: 2.5 miles
Elevation gain: 1600 ft
Directions: Take Farrington Highway west. The trailhead is behind Dillingham Airfield, and is best accessed through the West airfield entrance, closer to Kaena Point.
A mid-sized parking lot can be found at the West side of the airfield, across from the trailhead.
No. The closest public restroom is miles away, so stop by Coffee Gallery for some hiking fuel, and use the restroom before you set out!
There is a great place for a picnic at the top, so pack a lunch!
The airfield gate closes at 7pm, so be sure to finish your hike by then!
Kealia Trail and Access Road is part of the Na Ala Hele Hawaii Trail System. For more information, visit https://hawaiitrails.ehawaii.gov/island.php?island=Oahu
