Pu'u Ohia Trail is part of the Honolulu Mauka Trail System. The trail ascends up through guava and bamboo groves and is lined by ginger. At approximately 0.5 miles, the trail comes to the top of Mt. Tantalus, where there is a Hawaiian Telephone service road. Proceed mauka (right) on this road until you reach the end. The trail begins again behind the left side of the light green building. Continue down through the bamboo forest until the trail ends at an intersection with Manoa Cliff Trail.

If you choose to continue left on Manoa Cliff Trail, you will reach a system trail map after about 0.2 miles. Stay on the trail. Keep dogs on leash. Pack out at least what you pack in. No open fires.

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.
