Hiking Oahu--Lulumahu, Kaniakapupu and a Glimpse of Luakaha

September 19, 2014  •  2 Comments

A rare weekday group from Oahu Hikers made the trek to Lulumahu falls, and then to Luakaha falls and Kaniakapupu Ruins.

I have been to and recorded visits to all of these places.  Luakaha falls just about 10 days ago, but today the easy route to Luakaha is blocked by a 6 foot fence, making the falls much more difficult to get to.  We didn't attempt to get there today, but I'll be back :-).
 

*note*  Not complaining!  If morons were in my backyard, partying and acting like fools, I'd put a fence up too.

*note #2* If you're one of those morons, STOP!  You're ruining it for ALL of us!

*note #3*  This is, by far, the least amount of pics I've taken on a hike :D.  I guess that will happen the 4th or 5th time on the same hike.....

And we ended with a few less :-).

 

FMF (Fat-Man-Factor)(FMF is a difficulty scale from 1-10, from an out of shape, fat, white guy's point of view): 3 A couple of easy hikes here.  We were finished with both in around 3 hours and if you're in a hurry, I'm sure you could cut that in half.  I'm never in that much of a hurry or I wouldn't be hiking :-).

No, there's no way around the fence. In fact there's more fence. Last time I was there, the police were called. Whoever you spoke to doesn't own the land. It's all missionary land but still illegal to access. I've heard the residents shooting BB guns and sending digs down after hikers. I wouldn't suggest going.

Have you tried doing the Laukaha again? I was wondering if you found a way around the fence? I went to the peoples home that owns that land there and was turned away. The lady said because it's wet it was dangerous and she would not let me go. I'm really interested in doing this hike.
