Family Friendly Hikes in Oahu

Hello everyone, I have compiled a list of our family favorite hikes in Oahu. Make sure to take the family to see these hikes on your next visit.

Tantalus-Pu'u Ualaka'a State Lookout

This is a more of a lookout then a hike, a gimme view from the car. Great for those with small children who don't want to overdo it. Nonetheless, Ualaka'a Lookout provides a fantastic view of Waikiki and Diamond Head.



Diamond Head State Park

This hike is recommended with bigger kids that are able to climb a massive amount of steps and withstand the heat of Summer. For the little ones, I recommend a baby carrier and a physically fit parent that is determined. The reward is a view of Honolulu that no one in the family will forget. Here was our experience with Diamond Head Hike.




Pali Lookout

Pali lookout has a paved trail called Old Pali Road that is accessible with a stroller. It is a nice trail although some parts toward the end seem to be swallowed by the jungle. Lush greenery, cool winds, and amazing views will provide an unforgettable experience by all.





Makapu'u Light House Road

Another great exercise trail with a view. The trail is paved for use of strollers and transverses up to a hot ticket whale watching spot when they migrate in the winter. Be sure to stop by the tidal pools on your way back down to cool off with the kids.




Manoa Falls

Manoa Falls is a must family friendly hike to see a waterfall in Oahu. The trail is not paved, but has plenty of rocks and roots for footing. It won't be possible to bring your stroller on this hike. If you have a small child I recommend a hiking carrier for the best family experience.



Mariner's Ridge

Mariner's Ridge is a lovely hike through the forest that leads to a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountain ranges with the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop. This Hike is considered beginner/intermediate, but will give anyone in the family a decent challenge. The path is not paved, so bring your Hiking carrier if you have small children and the whole family will have fun.
