Mariner’s Ridge is a community that overlooks Koko Crater on the east side, Olomana and Bellows Beach on the mauka side, and breathtaking views of Maunalua Bay at the base or entrance of Hawaii Kai. There is also a quick, yet moderate to steep hike. To get to the hike, drive up the mountain road through the Mariner’s Ridge (in Hawaii Kai) community. The trail head is on a cul-de-sac, drive to the very top of Kaluanui Road in Mariner’s Ridge and park at the end. You’ll see a metal sign leading you to the trailhead on the east side of the last residence. Once you reach the top, there are magnificent views from the ridge of the southern edge of the Ko’olau range.
Mariner’s Ridge hike or Kaluanui Ridge Trail is the easiest and shortest ridge hike to the Ko’olau summit. Located in the Mariner’s Ridge Community. Looking for real estate? Contact me.
