Pihea Trail information
Lonely Planet review
This very strenuous, roughly 3-mile trek begins at Puʻu o Kila Lookout . A mere 1 mile in and you’ll see the Pihea Lookout . Past the vista and a short scramble downhill the boardwalk begins. After another 1.5 miles you will come to Alakaʻi Crossing , intersecting with the Alakaʻi Swamp Trail. This is a good area for exploration, with ocean, cliffs, bog and forest all within a quarter-mile radius. At the crossing, a left on the Alakaʻi Swamp Trail leads to Kilohana Lookout . Continuing straight on the Pihea Trail will take to you the Kawaikoi campground along the Kawaikoi Stream.
Most hikers start on the Pihea Trail because the trailhead is accessible by the paved road to Puʻu o Kila Lookout. For another trailhead, begin at the Alakaʻi Swamp Trail starting point. The trails are not very well maintained anymore.
