Oahu is somewhere I visit almost every year and each time I visit there is always something new to see and explore. The combination of the luscious green mountains and the turquoise blue waters make it the ultimate hiking destination with a surplus of hikes all throughout the island!
This doesn't even put a dent in all the things that Oahu has to offer. Oahu is filled with TONS of hikes and activities but if you would like to know about more sights you can check out Lyssa's blog post for the College Tourist on 10 Sights to See in Oahu.

Crouching Lion - Many call this a mini hike because of it's short and low intensity nature. Don't be fooled by it's shortness because you will break sweat so make sure you bring plenty of water. While the hike only takes about 20-30 minutes, you'll want to allot enough time because the sights are amazing! You honestly don't even need to make it all the way up to the top because you'll quickly gain elevation and the views are constantly in sight.
Lulumahu Falls - Oh man, we'll have to write a blog post about this because the first time we attempted this hike we got lost for HOURS and never made it to the falls. It definitely helps to do extensive research on this hike and hopefully run into someone who's coming down from the hike. If you go the right way, the hike is not too bad. Many people actually take their children! It's all just a matter of knowing where to go.
Diamond Head - This is a very popular hike amongst tourist and a very strenuous one. It's about a 760-foot climb up to the top but you'll be rewarded with 360 views of Waikiki once arrived.
