Nuuanu Judd Trail

Trail Name: Nuuanu Judd Trail

Difficulty: Beginner

Length: depends on which trails you end up on

Tips: Make sure you have a general idea of which direction you want to go as there are many trails in this area.  One other popular area is Jack Ass Ginger, a swimming hole about a 10 minute walk into the forest.

Directions: Take the Pali Road Kailua Bound and take your last right at the stop light before you ascend into the mountains.  Follow the Old Pali Road until you cross a bridge and see a trail marker, about 2 miles down the road.  Park along the road and begin the trail.  Note: do not leave any valuables in your car as it is a common spot for break ins.

Highlights: The beginning of the trail has a river crossing and thick bamboo.  Then you ascend into cook pines and back into bamboo up a steep mountain side.  The view at the top of the valley is beautiful.  Many trails connect and wind in all different directions so you can choose any way that you want and end up somewhere new.

My favorite: crazy amounts of moss
