I finally got the chance to do one of the most popular trails on the island: Aiea Loop Trail. There’s not much to say about the hike except that it takes you through nice sections at the top of Aiea Heights Drive. The H-3 Freeway even comes into view about halfway through. The hike is a little over four miles and does not require any steep climbs. Come to think of it, the trail actually never ascends, making it a perfect beginner and/or family hike.
I had a nice little stroll until I came to a fork towards the end of the hike. Instead of taking the right fork, I took the left fork. This led me to someone’s backyard at the top of Halawa Heights. I would’ve backtracked, but I had to work at 2:30pm, and it was already 1:30pm. So I called my pops to taxi me from the top of Halawa Heights Drive to the Aiea Loop trailhead. So yeah, I got lost on the most popular trail on Oahu. Boo to me. At least I made it to work on time.
