Description

The Judd Trail, nestled within the lush rainforest of Hawaii, offers a charming journey through Oahu's natural beauty.

As you venture onto the Judd Trail, you are enveloped by the vibrant greenery of the rainforest, with towering trees and dense foliage creating a canopy overhead.

The trail begins with a gentle ascent, meandering alongside a tranquil stream, and from here on you can expect to see a diverse array of flora and fauna endemic to the Hawaiian islands.

Along the way, the trail presents several points of interest for you to explore.

Ancient stone walls and remnants of traditional Hawaiian agricultural terraces offer glimpses into the island's storied past, and as you ascend further along the trail, the landscape opens up to panoramic vistas of the surrounding valleys and peaks, offering breathtaking views of the island's dramatic topography.

Remarkably close to Honolulu, the Judd Trail is a great way to escape the city and get your fix of nature.
