Hike Club #11: Kamiloiki


Also known as Makahuena, the Kamiloiki Ridge trail starts in Hawaii Kai at the Pahua Heiau.  I’ve driven almost right past this heiau before without knowing it was there – it sits on a cul de sac in a residential neighborhood.  The trail is about 2.5 miles and ends with a great view over Waimanalo and Kailua.  For most of the way, the trail follows the crest of a ridge with a dropoff on each side.  Great view but brutal sun.  We probably didn’t pick the best day for this trail.  We were very grateful for the shade of the ironwoods near the end, despite some scratchy underbrush.  I would definitely recommend this hike, but bring an extra bottle of water!
