DESCRIPTION:  KAMAILE'UNU RIDGE ASCENDS TO THE FOURTH HIGHEST PEAK ON OAHU DIVIDING WAI'ANAE AND MAKAHA VALLEY. THE TRAIL CLIMBS TO KAMAILE HEIAU, ASCENDS PU'U KAMAILE'UNU, CONTINUES UP PU'U KEPAUULA, FINALLY SUMMITING JUST BEFORE AN IMPASSABLE DROPOFF WITH A DIRECT VIEW OF WAIANAE KAI AND MOUNT KA'ALA; OFFICIALLY ENDING THE TRAIL.

THIS GOAT TRAIL IS ROUGH WITH LOOSE ROCKS AND REQUIRES ATTENTION TO FOOTWORK. CONSTANT DIRECT EXPOSURE TO THE SUN AND THE LENGTH OF TRAIL DEMANDS AN EARLY START TIME AND A SUFFICIENT AMOUNT OF WATER.
