Sunday Afternoon Fitness Hike up Koko Crater!

What better way to wind up your weekend than a Fitness Hike up Koko Crater? After, we'll head into town for some cheap eats.

This is a short intense hike 1000 feet up the side of Koko Crater along an old rail line.  This is the poster child for Rails to Trails!  Think of it like you are climbing the Empire State Building.  The climb is its own reward you will feel Great!  As a bonus there's a great view of Honolulu, Diamond Head and Hawaii Kai.


Duration: This is about an hour round trip.

Dogs: Are allowed, always on leash.

Dangers: Minor only.  Some slippery railroad ties and high steps up and down.  Trail shoes are sufficient as footwear.  No sandals - although I see plenty of tourists out there struggling in sandals -- ha ha.

Directions: From Honolulu head East on the H1 all the way through Hawaii Kai.  Turn left onto Lunalilo Home Rd go about half mile, then turn Right onto Kaumakani St.  Follow to the end of the park. Meet at the very Top End of the Parking Lot. Google directions here: Parking is free and plentiful.

We will go at our own pace up the hill and regroup at the top.  Bring water.  Rain cancels.


You must RSVP to attend this event, no exceptions.
Walking around outdoors and hiking carries inherent risks, like sun burn, bee sting, falling down, the dreaded 'hat hair'... umm... broken bones, falling off cliffs or birds might poop on you. You could get a twisted ankle.. Hike within your limits, know your surrounding, have a plan, go with a partner. Always carry extra water and hike within your limitations.

    Hi Bob, I am a beginner. Can I hike on my pace? If it rains, is it still on? Could you put your phone number in case. Thanks.

    My 6 mile run this morning turned out to be 7.5 so I have to pass on the stairs this time.

    we may join you, but might have to leave if the shooting range is being used by law enforcement (they sometimes shoot until 9p), mei is freaked out by the gunshots.
