Aloha and Welcome to the Pacific Palisades Community Association Website




PACIFIC PALISADES is a residential community nestled in the mountains above Pearl City, centrally located between Downtown Honolulu and the City of Kapolei, on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu.

The early 1960s marked the beginning of residential development by developers Lewers & Cooke. What was formerly sugarcane land transformed into single-family 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath homes selling for less than $15,000.

Today, with a population of more than 5,000 and a little over 2,000 homes, many homes have been razed or replaced from the original 900 square feet homes to larger 2,000 square feet homes. The median sales price for a single family home is about $500,000.

Our neighborhood is made up of individuals and families with a diversity of ethnic, racial and religious backgrounds representing a variety of income levels and occupations.

This is a great neighborhood for those who appreciate being away from the city and secluded. There's only "One Way In, One Way Out" of this subdivision by a two lane roadway that cuts through the valley and along the hillside with curves and swerves. Heading up the hill is the entrance to Pacific Palisades with an elevation starting at 213 feet above sea level. Continue another two miles uphill on Komo Mai Drive, ending in a cul-de-sac at an elevation of over 700 feet above sea level. Relax and enjoy the spectacular panoramic views of the Ko'olau Mountains and the Pacific Ocean.

Nestled in a quiet neighborhood and bordered by Rainbow Eucalyptus trees is the Pacific Palisades Community Park. This 12.5 acre community park has a little league baseball field overlooking a volley court, two basketball courts, and an adjoining children's playground. Benches are located in the shelter to enjoy a quiet moment. Across the street are two tennis courts.

MANANA TRAIL is located at the end of Komo Mai Drive. Entrance to the Manana Trail is at the end of the cul-de-sac next to the big metal gate. The first part is easy, great scenery with amazing views, but be cautious, of the asphalt roadway, where cracks, broken pavement pieces, potholes and split sections are ahead. Just past the water tank, is the second part, secluded and heavily-shaded with cooler temperatures and cooing sounds from birds in the distance. Stop at the marked sign ahead, Koolau Summit 5 3/4 mi or Waimano Falls 1 3/4 mi, choosing your own adventure.







THE FALLS hike is 3.5 miles round trip. The infamous Heart Attack Hill, "Roots, Rock, Reggae." The waterfall is epic! Swing from the rope or jump off the ledge into one of three swimming pools on a clear day after a good rain.

TIP: Avoid the falls during summer months. Don't expect any water trickling down the waterfall or expect to swim. The swimming holes are filled with greenish brown contaminated stagnant water.





 

THE KOOLAU SUMMIT hike is 10.5 miles round trip. Amazing views, tropical forest, grassy knolls, steep inclines and drop offs, remote and lush valleys, wide and narrow pathways. Satisfy your hunger with fresh strawberry guavas or mountain apples. Take in the beauty of nature surrounded by Hawaii's native plants, the Naupaka, Koa, Ohia Lehua, Lobelia, Olapa and Kopiko and some Non-Native plants, the Eucalyptus, Cherry Guava and Brushbox. This hike is so well worth it! Hike to the summit at the last marker, "End of Manana Ridge Trail" and embrace the breathtaking views of the lush mountains, pristine beaches and the Windward Coast.
