Oahu hiking trails are great because there are so many easy hikes that can be found all over the island. I live on the East side between Diamond Head and Koko Crater. This area offers a long list of options from challenging to super easy and all with great views.

The tallest peak in Africa is a gentle summit for inexperienced hikers, with natural beauty and gorgeous contrasts in the landscape.

You must be in a good physical condition to take on long and challenging hikes, especially those involving a significant degree of climbing and steep trails.

I had a disagreement which this lady who clung onto the straps of my pack and refused to let go until I paid her so I grudgingly paid and left.

Take the appropriate footwear and clothing. Running shoes and trainers will wear quickly and are not suitable for braving steep mountains and rocky terrain. Proper walking boots are essential for longer hikes and appropriate clothing is also important, taking into account the temperature and the weather conditions.
