Oahu ADVENTURES
  Plan Your Adventure > Hiking > Oahu Hiking

Oahu, the most developed Hawaiian island, has many scenic hikes ranging from valley to ocean views. Hiking is a great way to explore other islands in Hawaii (Big Island, Kauai, or Maui) as well.

Oahu has a great bus system! Depending on where you plan to go, you might not even need to rent a car.
