The Makapu'u Lighthouse Trail, at the easternmost point of Oahu, is a very popular family-friendly hike along a paved path. 

The Makapu'u Lighthouse hike offers stunning views of the Pacific Ocean, and you may spot whales here in season! It's a great sunrise hike in Oahu.

The Diamond Head Summit Trail is arguably Oahu's most popular hike, and takes you to the top of the Diamond Head Crater for fabulous views over Waikiki.

Entry and parking reservations for Diamond Head State Monument are required for non-residents so make them ahead of your trip to avoid missing out on this popular hike!

Love chasing waterfalls? You will want to consider the Manoa Falls Trail, which features lush tropical vegetation all along the way! You'll see bamboo, ferns, and more.

Your payoff is lovely Manoa Falls, with its plunge pool. You can't swim here though, so admire the falls and snap lots of photos before heading back!

Up for a more challenging hike? Consider the Koko Crater Railway Trail, which features a leg-busting 1,000+ steep steps to the top!

From the top of the crater, you are rewarded with fabulous views of Hanauma Bay. Most hikers do the Koko Head Stairs early or late in the day to avoid the heat.
