Kaunala Trail begins in a stand of paperbark trees and contours in and out of several gulches. It is a good combination of ridge and valley trail and offers great views of the north shore and Waianae Mountain Range. There is an interesting combination of native and introduced vegetation along this trail. The last portion of the hike is along a dirt road. When you break out of the forest onto the dirt road, go right. About 0.25 miles up the road, you will come to a large iron gate. Continue around the gate and go right at the road intersection. Continue down the road, past the trailhead (now, on your right) to the entrance gate and your parked vehicle.
General Information: The trail is open weekends, together with state and National holidays.
Do not use any trail or access road that is not delineated by name and color and that may also be displayed on these maps. The marked features are managed for public recreational use. Other trails or roads that branch off from the public features may be on private property, and are not managed for any public recreational use. Access is subject to adjacent landowner approval, and if used without authorization, you will be trespassing and possibly putting yourself at risk.
Directions: From Honolulu, On Kamehameha Highway, from Haleiwa heading towards Sunset Beach, turn right on Pupukea Road (at Foodland). Continue up the road, past the Pu`u `O Mahuka Heiau, until the road ends at a gate and Camp Pupukea. Park outside the gate in the parking area. Proceed on foot down the dirt road. The Kaunala Trailhead will be on your left about 3/4 mile down the road.
