Climbing up the east ridge of Makiki Valley, the Maunalaha Trail makes for a short but steep ascent. Eucalyptus trees line the sides of the path, providing plenty of shade but limits views. The hike eventually comes to 4-way intersection, offering visitors access to many of the valley’s other trails, including Moleka, Kanealole, and ‘Ualaka’a. We suggest taking the latter, which leads to the Pu’u ‘Ualaka’a State Park and Overlook.
