Your Guide to the North Shore's Kaunala Trail

While the North Shore offers a plethora of breathtaking hikes, we’re quite fond of the Kaunala trail, located in Pupukea. A lush hillside community that overlooks the North Shore beaches, Pupukea is lined with trails that serpentine up and down the majestic mountainside and is a short drive from Turtle Bay. The Kaunala trail offers a hike that’s sure to provide you with sweeping vistas, but isn’t out of reach for beginner hikers, making it perfect for the family.

To access the start of the trail from Turtle Bay Resort, turn left onto Pupukea road, just past Foodland. Drive up the hill about three miles until you reach the end and a boy scout’s camp. You can park on the road. From there, you’ll see a dirt access road that will lead you to the start of the trail.
