“Beautiful scenic point half way up historic Round Top Drive. Take Round Top Drive up the mountain, about 7min in you will reach Pu'u 'Ualaka'a Park. Afterwards continue upwards Round Top Drive and enjoy the historic drive through Honolulu's most enchanting neighborhood and loop down Tantalus drive. Many scenic pull overs & trail heads along the entire mountain.”

“This Biki station for bike rentals is right down the street from us and there are sooo many more! I swear if you played "Punch Bug" with Biki, you'd get hit every 7 seconds.”

“This is my favorite trail running spot! Great for a short (or long) hike through bamboo forests, rainforests, and pine tree groves. Really nice and well maintained hike with very minimal traffic. One of the nicest places to get away from the big city or tourists hoards. ”
