Hawaii Mom Blog: Camp Palehua Open for Hiking

Camp Palehua Open for Hiking

I was devastated when the hiking trails shut down last month and I am not exaggerating.  It was one of the stress relievers that I had started counting on to get me through these Covid19-ridden days.  When I heard the two hiking trails at Camp Palehua were still open, I quickly made a call and booked the next available weekday.  Weekends are full for the next 3 weekends, but it never hurts to double check.

Your options are the Nānākuli Overlook Hike - about 2 miles round trip; beginner level; safe for all ages; view of the Leeward Coast and the Puʻu Manawahua or WWII Bunker Hike - about 4 miles round trip; moderate level; steep incline; not recommended for children under 10 yrs old; view of South Shore (Diamond Head) out to Leeward Coast (Mākaha).

Four time slots are available daily: 8:00 AM, 9:00 AM, 11:00 AM and 12:00 PM. There is a fee of $10.00 per adult and $5.00 per child (5 years old and under free).  All hikers are required to wear a face mask while in the campgrounds, however, hikers will be allowed to remove the mask on the trail. Hikers have a 3-hour time block allotted.

For more information, call Camp Palehua at (808) 347-0736.
