Hiking Trails?
« on: March 15, 2010, 06:31:34 PM »
I was wondering if anyone knew of some hiking trails, and how hard they are. I recently won a bet against my family so we're going with what I wanted to do and that's hiking.

That's what it was, I forgot the website and Google was failing me...

But nope, there are a few hiking trails that aren't national parks.

most of state trails are on here...the ones state don't maintain are kinda dangerous...but if you want a challenge I can tell you about some I've been on.

There's quite a bunch. Me and my friends have done about 25 over the years, but 80% are not state maintained trails, and some are *off-limits*. One required us to get a helicopter rescue (free ride, yay!). I wouldn't consider most to be dangerous though... done Haiku Stairs in a rainstorm and no injuries or close calls, and it's supposed to be dangerous.
Olomana's 2nd-3rd peak is pretty dangerous, so is most of the Ko'olau Mountain Range's ridge, especially from Mt. Olympus past H3. Windy, foggy, narrow, and precipitous. Some's not even been attempted before.

All of the waterfall trails are pretty harmless - Manoa, Maunawili, Likeke, Waimea, Laie... Sacred Falls being the exception for the chance of falling rocks.
