Pu'u Pia Trail

1.9 miles   721ft elevation   Out & Back Trail
AllTrails lists it as Moderate

This was a short and easy hike located near Manoa, The majority of this trail is shaded in the woods and I ran into some muddy areas along the way. There were a lot of roots, from small to large on the trail. It's was fairly simple to follow the route as you ascend to a lookout point of Honolulu and the Ko'olau Range.

You will have to try and find street parking near the trailhead

There is the path on the right to the trailhead

Here is the actual trailhead

A lot of rocks and branches through this section

Yes.... go left

It wasn't too great through here either

Take a left at this fork
