Difficult 3.8 mile hike at Kokee State Park.

• Hiking: Hiking • Hiking: Length: 3-4 Miles • Hiking: Level: Difficult • Hiking: Major Elevation Changes • Hiking: Out & Back Trail

The Nu'alolo Trail, which is different than the Nu'alolo Cliffs Trail, is located in Kokee State Park and features a 3.8 mile hike (one way) that most would consider difficult. There is an overall elevation gain of 1,566 feet which certainly adds to the difficulty.

The trail starts at the Kokee State Park HQ area and runs through the Kuia Natural Area Reserve then reaches the forest reserve. At its end, you'll be 2,234 feet above sea level. Never go beyond the safety railings at the end of the trail.

Follow it back and it will eventually connect to the Nu'alolo Trail and then even the Awa'awapuhi Trail as well. As always, be sure to read up on Hiking Safety & Essentials before you head out.
