Out of the dozens of Oahu hikes, there are only a few that have fantastic sunrises. Here are six of the best Oahu sunrise hikes.
The Lanikai pillbox hike is easily one of the most famous hikes on Oahu (after Stairway to Heaven, Koko Head, and Diamond Head).If you’re new to hiking, this could be a good way to motivate yourself to do a slightly more challenging hike. If you’re basically a pro hiker, this little trail will have a super rewarding view for the little bit of effort you’ll have to put in. Either way, here are some basics to help you with the Lanikai pillbox hike.
The small island known as Chinaman’s Hat has tons of adventurous activities. For some reason though, this little gem manages to swoop under the radar of locals and tourists alike. Continue reading “The Adventures of Chinaman’s Hat, Oahu, Hawaii”
On Oahu, we don’t have the pull-up-and-take-a-picture waterfalls that many of the other Hawaiian Islands do. No, you have to go on a bit of a hike to reach any of our waterfalls on the island. That said, the Oahu waterfall hikes are definitely worth a little bit of extra exercise.
Oahu, Hawaii has got tons of gorgeous hikes – some with waterfalls, some with a little bit of history, some that are a straight up work out, and some with stunning views. Oahu’s Ehukai pillbox hike definitely falls under the “stunning views” category, and it should not missed.
I am not the kind of person to have a bucket list. The idea of having a list of things to do and needing to complete them all isn’t my thing – it’s basically another to-do list, and I’m not about that. I do have an adventure list, which is similar in that it is also a list of cool things to do; however, I do not feel the need to complete them all. But that won’t stop me from recommending 16 things to add to the bucket lists that you inevitably have. Continue reading “16 Things to Add Your Bucket List Right Now”
Remember that amazing beach in Southern California I wrote about a few weeks ago – Pirates’ Cove? Well, I went back for another visit and found out that there was a Pirates’ Cove Hike! The path leads to amazing views of the sunset and an overlook above a bunch of sea lions!! And, to make it even better, it’s not too strenuous.
Therefore, to continue on with my trend of outing all of my secret adventure sites – like I did with Likeke Falls and Ko Olina’s Secret Lagoon, here are some directions to get to this sea lion overlook.
I’ve been missing my hiking days back home just a little bit, so I’ve decided to write this blog post about one of my favorite waterfall hikes back home on Oahu: Likeke Falls.
This is probably one of my favorite hikes because the effort-to-payoff ratio is pretty good. You hike (or walk slightly uphill) for a solid twenty minutes, and there is a nice-sized waterfall there for you. No, it’s not the skyscraper-tall Manoa Falls waterfall, but it’s not the lame Waimea Falls that all of the tourists are told to go see. Likeke Falls is a nice balance, and that makes it a great hike for kids! Almost every time I’ve gone, I’ve seen a few kids there, playing in the little pools beneath the waterfall.
It was July 18, 2017, and we had just docked at Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada. We headed on the bus – all four of us – with several others and our guides, Claude and – well, I don’t remember what the other one’s name was. I only remember Claude, because he was telling us all a bunch of lies, like how the trees in Nova Scotia turn blue in the fall or that he met Charles de Gaulle and he was nearly seven feet tall. Lies.
After an hour and a half of Claude and what’s-his-name’s nonsense, we reached our destination: the trailhead to Uisage Ban Falls.
Monday morning, I woke up to a bunch of texts and phone calls from some friends telling me that they were going to hike Manoa Falls that morning. I’d wanted to go on a hike the entire summer, but it just hadn’t happened. But that day, it was going to happen.
