Here is a map of the Kuliouou / Hawaii Loa Ridge. As you can see, the Kuliouou Ridge Hike starts off of Kuliouou Road, whereas the Hawaii Loa Ridge hike starts on Puuikena Drive Nearby communities are Wailupe, Waialai Iki, Kalana Iki, Aina Haina, Kahala, Kuliouou, Niu Valley, Paiko Lagoon, Waialae Nui Lower, Diamond Head and Kaimuki. From Kalanianaole Hwy, turn onto Puuikena Drive (across from Kawaikui Beach Park). Tell the guard that you are a Hawaii resident and hiking the ridge. He will check your driver's license (sometimes registration, and insurance) before letting you in. Proceed to the very end of the road and park at the trailhead. In this area you will find “high end” Hawaii homes, located on, Ikena Circle, Kaialii Place, Kaulana Place, Kokololio Place, Lelekepue Place, Maono Loop, Maono Place, Moaniala Streer, Puuikena Drive and Puuikena Place. This community was named after Hawaii Loa, traditional discoverer of the land. It is also a form of Hawaiki, the traditional home of the Polynesians. A couple of theories exist on the origin of the name Hawaii. One theory has it that the name comes from a combination of the words "Hawa" and "ii" and means a small or new homeland; "Hawa" meaning a traditionl homeland and "ii" meaning small and raging. The other theory is that the name comes from the traditional discoverer of the islands, Hawaii Loa.
