Travel Information

The Kaiwa Ridge Trail begins on a drive located off Kaelepulu Dr., just south of the Mid-Pacific Country Club. There is no reliable parking in the area. Some websites mention 7 spots are available just past the country club entrance. But as of April 2021, those appear to have been eliminated and "No Parking" signs now appear in that location. I would recommend to park at Kailua Beach and walk (approx. 1 mile).

The trail length is 1.8 miles. I would recommend to avoid when it's raining or weather is poor as the dirt type on Hawaii can be very slippery when wet. Many areas are steep and may need to be climbed. Please keep this in mind if attempting to hike in the dark to take a sunrise or sunset photo.

The Lanikai Pillbox is the real destination of this trail, but many great views can be observed during the hike itself.
