The Pu'u Ohia Trail is a short, 0.75 (one way) out and back trail on Mount Tantalus in the Honolulu area of O'ahu. The trailhead starts right on Tantalus drive at an elevation of 1,600 feet and climbs over 400 feet in elevation to 2,000 feet up.

You'll find the trailhead right on Tantalus Drive with a small parking area right across the street. Watch for traffic around here since traffic likely won't be watching for you.

After hiking through 0.3 miles the path will connect up to Telephone Road (a service road) where you'll turn right and follow it to the end after another 0.3 miles. The trail will begin again behind the left side of the light green building at the end of the road.

From there it will run for 0.25 miles where it will connect to the Manoa Cliff Trail (on your right) or if you keep going straight it will run into the Pauoa Flats Trail. From the Pauoa Flats Trail you can take that to the end for a scenic lookout or connect to the Kalawahine Trail (first and second lefts) or the Nu'uanu Trail (third left) or to the Aihualama Trail (first right) which will eventually work its way down to the Manoa Falls Trail.

While dogs are allowed on the trail, they're not recommended here as hunting dogs may be in this area. If you bring a dog it must be leashed at all times. Be sure to read up on Hiking Safety & Essentials before you go.
