Hawaii Mom Blog: Kolekole Pass Road Walking-Hiking Path

Kolekole Pass Road Walking-Hiking Path

Being a paranoid mom of a very energetic and unpredictable six year old boy, I've always left him at home when his sister and I would go hiking.  I'm terrified that he might just start running and fall off a cliff so when I decided to take both kids on a hike, they both received long winded safety lectures.

Kolekole, sometimes known as Kolekole Pass Road is the Schofield Barracks walking-hiking path that is less than a mile in and out overlooking Waianae.  It is a well maintained and clearly marked trail.  If you are not a DOD ID card holder, you can enter through Lyman gate and gain base access when you provide your ID, car registration, safety check, and car insurance.  You'll also need to check the U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii Facebook page for when the trail is open.

The trailhead is located at the end of Trimble Road.  You'll know when you get there as there will be a no access gate and a small parking area on your left.  We arrived at the trail 
around 9:30am and since it was overcast, it was nice and cool.  There were already plenty of parked cars and other families on the trail.

This was a great beginner trail for my son since it wasn't very long, but included steep stairs and tricky roots that he thought was exciting.  Both kids had the most fun just climbing a tree.  I enjoyed the view at the top, but still had to keep a close eye on both kids as I didn't want them getting too close to the edge.

Off they go!

The Boy Scouts installed stairs and rope! 

The rope was very helpful.

A little more to the top.

First look out.

Beautiful greenery.

Bench at the top to enjoy the view.

Beware of drop offs.

They spent the longest time here.
