The Aiea Loop is a great, easy hike right outside of Waikiki. There's not a lot of elevation change but great mini-views of the Wai'anae Range. This is a great option for families looking for some activity but not too strenuous.

The Aiea Loop trail is actually located in the Keaiwa Heiau State Recreation Area. The trail runs along the ridge on the west side of Halawa Valley. There are some peek-a-boo views of the southern coastline and Wai'anae Range. If you are a leisurely hiker, allow 2.5-3 hrs for the hike. 

It's an easy hike, not very demanding in terms of changes in elevation. However, there are portions of the trail where you will have to climb over downed trees AND if, for whatever reason, you decide to hike the trail directly after a rainfall be prepared to get muddy and slip as the trail itself is a dirt trail.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

Aiea Trail

Mostly a flat trail, good for beginners of all ages. Don't recommend going after a long rain unless you like getting muddy.

Fun, easy hike.

Not Enough Views

This is a jungle hike- not many views to be had. The main view is if a highway. Aside from that, it's pretty boring. And muddy. Okay for kids on this trail.
