Hiking in Hawaii has become something I really look forward to doing as a family. There are countless hiking trails on Oahu, and I feel like we’ve barely scratched the surface! One hike we did earlier this year was Ka’ena Point Trail, which we did from the West Side of the island (Waianae at the end of Farrington Highway). The winter is whale season in Hawaii, and Ka’ena Point is one of the best places to see whales on Oahu. We saw dozens, and even saw one whale breach and jump high in the air and also splash it’s tail on the surface. It was incredible! If you’re looking for a scenic hiking trail along the coast of Oahu, this is the hike for you. Be sure to check out my other Hawaii hiking blog posts here.

Tom carried Caroline in our hiking toddler carrier because we knew it was a bit too strenuous for her (she was around 17 months here). If you’re looking for a great hiking pack we’d definitely recommend this Osprey one (ours is an older version of the same thing). I wore my “adventure sandals” and they’re so great because they’re comfy and can get all wet and dirty, yet they’re cute too! I have the “big kid size 6” which is actually a women’s size 8. I wear them on pretty much all of my hikes (I think of them as a cuter version of Tevas or Chacos). The shorts I wore are hands down my favorite denim shorts ever. I can’t wait to wear them again once I’m not pregnant 🙂 My baseball cap is one of my favorites (sun protection is so important!) and my sunglasses have been some of my favorites for nearly 8 years (no clue how I haven’t lost them yet). I love them because they’re black and brown so they go with everything.
