Take a hike to a fabulous ridge view in Kuliouou on Oahu

When most people think of Hawaii, they (correctly) imagine pristine beaches. Might I also say we have the most amazing hikes as well. They vary in difficulty from take-a-baby-stroller to you-are-freaking-insane but all of them feature drop-dead beauty. Back in the day I used to boast about hiking all around Hawaii in bare feet but
