It does not seem that long ago my friends and I were able to pick up and go on an adventure in a blink of an eye, no strings attached. It’s hard for me to believe that time has escaped us. Although, I do not have my own children, it seems that all of my friends come with a child or two. If I want and show my wonderful home of Oahu, I have to be prepared for an adventure with at least one tiny human. I have become well versed on Oahu beginner, kid friendly hikes. Note, when I say kid friendly, I also mean young, old, out of shape, fit and furry family members.
Many articles will list both Diamond Head and Waimea Falls as two easy, kid friendly hikes, but I am leaving those two out. Although they are good for beginners, I stay away from those two because they are often overcrowded and it costs to either park or enter the trail. I am a big fan of free and less crowded.
