Take a Hike

The Island of Oahu has many great hiking trails. In my neighborhood there are four (five if you include the walk out to Makapuu Lighthouse). The hike to the top of Koko Crater provides a 360 degree view of East Honolulu and across the Kaiwi Channel to Molokai and Maui.  Many people reach the summit walking up the tracks of the incline railway.  The railway was built in WW II to move soldiers manning the observation/radar site.  It’s a steep hike in parts plus there are sections of the railway elevated above the ground and you must step carefully from railway tie to tie. I got this shot when I carried my Maxxum 7D up to the top a few years ago.  On the left is the main area of Hawaii Kai with Kuapa Pond next to Maunalua Bay.  From this height you can see up the coast to Diamond Head and some of the of the buildings in Waikiki
