The Kuliouou Ridge Trail can be long and challenging (at least I thought so.) Some people will say this hike was easy but I’m a pretty experienced hiker and I thought this was a lengthy hike. It was long and most of it was uphill. However, the view at the top was incredible and that’s why I recommend this hike. I typically don’t recommend hikes that are long and painful that don’t provide a pretty view or reward of some kind. Kuliouou Ridge is gorgeous at the top.
