If you’re planning to visit this tropical paradise and go for the trek of a lifetime, the good news is there are so many trails you can do, with different levels of difficulty and varied views. Below are some of the Top Hiking Spots On Oahu that you shouldn’t miss, according to the level of difficulty:
- Lanikai Pillboxes Hike
Distance: 2-3 miles
Time Needed: 1 ½ hours
As one of the easiest hikes in the island, the Lanikai Pillboxes hike (or the Ka’iwa Ridge Trail) is rare because it gives you stunning views without making you work so hard for it. This is a short, kid-friendly hike that gives you some of the best views overlooking Lanikai Beach and the Mokes. You begin the hike in the residential neighborhood in Kailua, and while you can be done in an hour or so, you might stay longer for the views.
