Wiliwilinui Ridge Trail Division of Forestry and Wildlife



Description

Honolulu Watershed Forest Reserve (Wailupe section). Wiliwilinui Trail begins on a dirt access road through formosa koa and guava forest. As the road climbs up the ridge, it becomes native koa-uluhe forest. The trailhead is about 1.5 miles up the access road. The trail climbs straight up the ridge to a HECO tower. Continue past the tower to the Koolau summit. This trail offers opportunities for viewing of a variety of native plants and, from the summit, the leeward coast and Waimanalo. Note: The Wiliwilinui Community Association has been more than cooperative in letting hikers and hunters access State land through their property. Please abide by all rules and regulations of the association.  Campsites not designated.  Camping is allowed anywhere within the trail corridor (10 feet from center line).
