Wa’ahila Ridge Trail, St Louis

HONOLULU | The Wa’ahila Ridge Trail is a moderate to difficult ridge hike that originates in Wa’ahila Ridge State Recreation Area. It offers stunning views across Manoa Valley, Palolo Valley, Honolulu and the Ko’olau Range. It’s also a great hike for those looking for native Hawaiian plants like koa and ‘ohia lehua, and native birds like amakihi and apapane.

The hike extends for 2.4 miles / 3.9km, with an elevation gain of 500ft / 152m, through dry, mountainous terrain that alternates between open ridge and forest. The hike ends at the intersection with the, Kolowalu Trail, which descends steeply down into the back of Manoa Valley.

Do be aware that if you are walking to the the start of the trail, the walk through the neighbourhood of St Louis is quite steep, and somewhat of a mini-hike in itself.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
