Wiliwilinui - June 28, 2011

The Wiliwilinui Ridge trail is one of the most popular and easiest ridge routes to the Ko'olau summit. It starts at the top of the Waialae Iki subdivision and follows a dirt road that eventually turns into a hiking trail all the way to the Ko'olau summit. On a clear day, views of the windward side of Oahu can be seen from the top. At around five miles round trip, the trail caters to hikers of all levels.
