DESCRIPTION:  KONAHUANUI IS THE HIGHEST POINT (3176 FT.) ALONG THE KOOLAU MOUNTAIN RANGE. 

THE TRAIL BEGINS FROM THE NU'UANU LOOKOUT WHICH CAN BE REACHED BY ANY OF THE TANTALUS NETWORK OF TRAILS. THE KALAWAHINE - PAUOA VARIATION TO THE LOOKOUT (PROFILED IN TOPO) IS RECOMMENDED FOR ITS SHORT DISTANCE AND LACK OF ELEVATION GAIN.

THE FIRST HALF OF THE KONAHUANUI TRAIL IS GRADED AND NOT VERY DIFFICULT WHILE THE UNGRADED SECOND HALF REQUIRES A MODERATE CLIMB TO THE TOP.

THE TOWERING SUMMIT OFFERS THE CLOSEST VIEW OVERLOOKING OLOMANA FROM THE KOOLAU RIDGELINE.
