Crouching Lion Hike | Things to do in Hawaii, Oahu

Crouching Lion Hike is a semi-easy hike. This steep, but quick, multi-tier trail is located just south of Kahana Bay. You’ll need athletic shoes, lots of water, sunscreen, sunglass/hat, and energy. This buns burning hike not only is an awesome workout, and boasts some of the the best views of the coast.  You don’t want to miss it!

There’s a small designated parking area on the side. There are a few trail entrances. We went in between the ” Do Not Pass” sign and the light pole.

It takes about 30-45 minutes to get to the top. It’s a really fast way to get an amazing view of the coast. There are some steep and drop off parts, so be really careful, and stay low to the ground. There are  a few areas where someone put ropes. Use them and send good vibes to person who installed them.
