Visit a privately owned 200′ Oahu Waterfall and the Koolau summit at the 1,200ft Kamehame Ridge on this Hiking Adventure.

Discover a hidden waterfall on this Hawaii hike. Begin with our moderate 2-mile round-trip guided waterfall hike which is a rare opportunity to explore 75-acres of sacred land that is exclusive only to the guests of our partner Bike Hawaii. Experience the majestic beauty of our towering 200-foot private waterfall, cross through tranquil streams, picturesque pools and view ancient lo`i (rock terraces) and lush tropical vegetation of Hawaii’s paradise. This is a mild to moderate hike over dirt trail with rocks and roots. In the rainforest, expect rain and forest. Trail can be muddy and slippery when wet. Hiking time is approximately 1.5 hours.

Then, we’ll explore East Oahu on this unforgettable journey with an exclusive van shuttle to the 1,200 ft. high ridge top at Kamehame, which is part of the Ko’olau Summit Trail (KST). This is another rare opportunity to visit this 600-acre private property that is exclusive to our guests. Nowhere else on Oahu can you get a driving tour comparable to this view. From this privately owned clifftop perch, gaze overlooking Waimanalo Beach and the various shades of the blue Pacific Ocean with several offshore islands seemingly within your reach. This is a spectacular and rare perspective of windward Oahu only not available to the public. You will capture some of the most breathtaking pictures of Oahu from here seeing two-sides of the island from one scenic point.  For those with hiking savvy, enjoy a short, but challenging half-mile round-trip guided hike along the KST for an extra birds-eye view of the windward beaches below. Kamehame Ridge is also known for the famous Deadman’s Catwalk along the Tom Tom Trail. Kamehame Ridge is a great spot for whale watching on O’ahu (whales seen December through May).

Along this scenic driving tour, our air-conditioned shuttle van will also stop for pictures overlooking Diamond Head surf breaks,   Halona Point Blowhole, and the famous Sandy Beach Park allowing you to watch surfers and bodysurfers attack the pounding shore break with skill and bravery.

Enjoy this epic adventure combining two scenic private properties in one memorable adventure!
