Sadly, it's access currently is restricted.
While I was visiting Hawaii, a local friend thought it might be a good idea to do one last hike before I leave the island. So, he took me to the ruins, after our heavy lunch (talk about digesting!)
Mother Nature, however, didn't cooperate, and it started to rain as we were entering the dense bamboo forest.

- Getting there is a bit tricky, there is no designated parking area. You will park on the side of the road.
- This is more of a walk than an actual hike. Level easy, not more than 20 minutes at most.
- The trail can be very dangerous and slippery in wet weather. Be careful.
- Wear old shoes, preferably sneakers. Kaniakapupu Ruins is known to be a very rainy place.
- Don't forget to bring an Insect repellent - STRONGLY RECOMMENDED, or you may be eaten alive by mosquitoes.
- It is cool. Because you got a bamboo forest, a little waterfall, and fallen logs (Indiana Jones, anyone?)
- One last thing: Remember, Kaniakapupu Ruins is the summer home of King Kamehameha III, so be considerate.

From the Hawaii Dept. of Land and Natural Resources-
In 2016 vandals carved a series of crosses on the ruin’s walls. Then again, around Valentine’s Day this year someone carved a heart-shape on a wall at Kaniakapūpū. At that time Peralta commented, “I’m sad, I’m angry, I’m disappointed. People are defacing an irreplaceable feature of our host culture’s history. It’s hard to imagine what’s going through someone’s mind when they intentionally deface or destroy this important part of Hawai‘i’s legacy.”

Much of the unpermitted visitation to the ruins has been fueled by bloggers and travel/tourism websites that were giving specific directions on how to reach them. In both 2016 and 2019, DLNR contacted various sites and asked them to delete their references and directions to Kaniakapūpū. By and large most websites have taken down explicit instructions with one including this disclaimer, “But be warned that this site is deemed on private land, and is currently being reviewed for barriers for protection from vandals and destruction.”

Please respect the host culture and do not break the law.
Anyone caught at Kaniakapūpū can be cited for entering a closed area.

The trail head is about 100 yards beyond a private residence and the water board building. IT is a wide trail that is well maintained once you enter from the road. It is really only about 5 minutes back to the ruins. You will hear the nearby waterfalls if you want to wander a little deeper off the beaten path.

I would not call these ancient ruins. The plague refers to its use in 1847. But it is interesting, nonetheless.

Peaceful site off the road about 5 minutes. You can hear the nearby stream, and there is plenty of beauty to see if you want to venture a little further. The entrance is right near the water board building just past a private residence.

This hike is purposefully difficult to find. There is an entrance off the road where you can park and hike about 15 minutes to this ruin. However, the information is held closely by the locals and they really don't encourage tourist to make this trek. It can also be accessed from the Pali Lookout, but it is a longer hike. We hiked it in the rain - not recommended as the trail is quite muddy, BUT the kids found it quite entertaining to slide around in the mud! Our group consisted of 2 generations from 6 months old to 68 years. So definately a hike you can do with a group. The bamboo forest is quite beautiful and the flora is beautiful. If you are looking for an unusal adventure, this is it.

A member of our group had read about this and though we got lost a couple times, we did encounter others returning that said it was indeed back there so we pressed on, save for the couple that were tired of being mosquito fodder and went back. They saved grace by pointing us to the Nu'uanu Pali Lookout which you should all go see since you are close. You leave Honolulu/Waikiki area and jump on the 61/Pali Hwy. There will be a parking lot on your right and I think signs say something about a Watershed Forest Reserve. Enter through the designated entrance from the dirt parking lot, where you will see a chain link fence The bigger one large enough for vehicles, not the smaller pedestrian only on on the left, and a big stump (log is gone) on the left and enter the first bamboo forest trail. It will exit by some power line road clearing. Follow the power line road left downhill. It is about 100 yards slightly downhill. You'll also pass the large trail on the left to Lulumahu Falls, but keep going under the power lines. The road bends left and makes a sharper decline downhill an overgrown by tree canopy. At that point look to for the entrance to the 2nd bamboo forest trail on the RIGHT. There is a log to step over it as you enter. The log is only about 8" in diameter (You'll know you missed the entrance if you reach the stream with a concrete water channel - just walk back up about 50 yards). This bamboo trail is long and narrows the farther you go. Just when you think you're lost, you exit the bamboo forest into a wooded tree area and there are a couple of orange markers to let you know you're almost there (markers become gold as you get close and your still cold if you see pink ones, which are everywhere and will misguide you, lol). You'll pass an old rusted drainage pipe on the right that looks like the ribs of an old dinosaur. The ruins are straight ahead. You'll first see one of the 4 walls/entrance on the right. Once there, the giant luau pit is on the right, the main entrance on the opposite side with the long, large stone entry way with a monument in front. Several local offerings were laid at the monument base.

. Once you get on the Pali Highway, it's less than 10 minutes away.

This was a hike that requires a walk through a bamboo forest. Make sure to wear decent walking shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty. We went just after a rain and the trail was very muddy. The trail is narrow but make sure to watch for the pink trail tape as there are occasional trails that divert off the main trail. The ruins of King Kamehameha 3’s summer palace are very interesting but does not allude to the beauty or size of the original palace where he entertained guests and even reportedly held a luau which hosted 10,000 guests. This is a secluded site which is not very publicized. I would not recommend this hike for small children or those that are mobility impaired. Make sure to take water with you as there are no facilities or water fountains along the way.

Es sind zwar wirklich schöne Ruinen, aber ihr Besuch dauert nur kurz. Quasi auf dem Weg kann jedoch auch noch kleine Wasserfälle sehen, aber der Weg dorthin ist nicht so einfach zu finden, genauso wie den Anfang des Trails (Ich war damals mit einem Lehrer unterwegs).

In der Nähe befinden sich weitere Hikes und Lagunen die man toll miteinander kombinieren kann!

Außerdem gibt es nicht so viele Besucher!

No signage to lead the way; however, take the road less traveled and you’ll find it.

Our group ranged in age from 1 to 55, all family on vacation. Was an easy “hike”.

I tried to go to the ruins after hiking to Lulumahu Falls, but I couldn’t find the right trailhead. I went home, found an old email and had no trouble finding it on our 2nd trip. Easy, short hike to a neat and historic location. Drive down Nuuanu Pali Drive backtracking from the parking lot for Lulumahu. Don’t stop in the canopied forest portion of the road. When you get to the residential area, you can park in front of a building for the Water Board on the right of the road. Then start walking back towards the jungle (Northeast). There will be an obvious trail into the bamboo on the right (East of the road just after a driveway and a manicured lawn with hedges). Take the trail for about a two minute walk and then there is an obvious trail off to the left that will take you from the main path up to the ruins. (There is another smaller path on the left before the main route - don’t be tempted to turn too early).
