On the Waterfall hiking tour, discover the hidden treasures of Oahu’s lush volcanic rainforest. With average year-round temperatures of 80 degrees (cooler in the rainforest), refreshing trade winds and two volcanic mountain ranges on this Hawaiian island, Oahu is a hiker’s paradise. Given the popularity of hiking, and since most all other hiking companies feature public trails and multiple groups, the secluded personality of the rainforest is often compromised. As a locally owned and operated company with a passion for Oahu’s volcanic rainforest beauty, this tour company ensures that guests are experiencing something uniquely their own and that will not be overcrowded by other tour companies and the general public.

Koolau Waterfall Hike

A professional nature guide will shuttle you by van to the lush Ko’olau Mountains on the windward side of O’ahu. Then take a 1.5-mile roundtrip hike along a privately-owned jungle trail. At the end of the trail, enjoy a spectacular view of Oahu’s windward coast and a 30ft waterfall. This hike has less than 100’ elevation gain throughout the hike to falls.  Experience the Ko‘olau Mountains, native and introduced species of flora and fauna, streams, pools and a cascading waterfall.

Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

Waikiki means “glistening waters” and it is thought to refer to the shimmering effect the late afternoon sun has on the surface of the ocean. While Waikiki is known for its beach and surf break, there are waterfalls in Waikiki as well! Almost every resort has one somewhere on the property. Unfortunately they are all fake! If you want to see a REAL waterfall you have to get out of town and do a little hiking. This tour offers you that chance!
