You’ve Never Experienced Anything Like This Epic Abandoned Railroad Hike In Hawaii
Perhaps one of the most famous hikes on Oahu – behind Diamond Head and Manoa Falls, of course – is Koko Head, a monolith rising out of Hawaii Kai more than 1,200 feet towards the sky. What most people don’t associate with this iconic Hawaiian hike is that the famous stairs are all that remains from a railway that was installed more than 70 years ago – and has since been left abandoned.
If your knees aren’t built for stair climbing, you can’t make it out to climb Koko Head, or you are still working on building up your endurance, check out this awesome drone footage of the stairs instead of hiking for yourself.
