The hike leads through the wild forests of the Pūpūkea Paumalū Forest Reserve. To get there, take the road up the mountain at Foodland (the only supermarket at the surf spots). You can either start the tour from Wilinau Road or continue on Pupukea Road until you pass Sunset Ranch outside the residential area. Shortly after that, Boy Scout Camp Pupukea is on the left. From there, a small trail leads into the forest.
This 10 km hike is relatively easy, with only 350 meters of elevation gain. You roam through unique, wild forests and have sensational views of deserted valleys, plateaus and the North Shore.
