Koko Head Crater Stairs

For anyone that lives or has lived in Hawaii, you know the arduous summit that is Koko Head Crater Stairs. It’s a hike made of 1,065 railroad tie “steps”. I use this term loosely, because in my mind, steps are plush and carpeted. These…not so much.

HIKING HAWAII-Koko Head Crater Steps

While strenuous, it’s one of my favorite hikes in all of Hawaii and is an absolute must-do if you’re here! Here are so snaps I took as proof if you’re hesitant 😉

    I'm pretty sure when we go back to Hawaii, you guys need to be our tour guides and show us all these gems we didn't experience before 😉

    That view of the bay is amazing! I've really been wanting to do this one, but I'm chicken. John took my brother and sister the day after Christmas, and I thought about joining, but it's definitely not something I'd want to take the girls to. Although, I was told there were children and even elderly people doing it..

    Oh that view is gorgeous! My husband has been trying to get me to do this hike with him for forever but I'm too chicken. Although with that view I might have to let myself be convinced!

    My students and I are studying landforms in our class for the next few weeks and they keep drawing pictures of what they think Hawaii is like. I need to just show them your blog. haha
