Schofield Base is accessible to the public as long as you have ID and car registration and insurance. These are the documents you need to get a day pass to enter the base. Although, having a person with military ID is much easier, don't let it deter you!
My military husband says the paved road is often used for their physical training. We park near a dilapidated shack with a seemingly forgotten porta potty and start our jog from here. So just to keep in mind, we stayed mainly on the paved road for our excursion.
I thought the road was relatively steep and ass kicking. I couldn't jog the whole way, but my husband could! Guess the PT pays off. The road is mainly shaded by the trees which was a blessing for my body.
At a hill top, we hit a guard shack, but that day the gates were closed or else I hear the road continues on the leeward side. And according to others, you'll definitely need a military ID to pass this point.
Around here is where I saw a trail off to the side, which I believe leads onto the rest of Kolekole Pass. Being exhausted from the jog up, we only ascend a couple of steps before we decided to head back down. Maybe next time I'll urge him to head up.
Overall a great road to jog and get some exercise.Recommended for:Outdoor Enthusiasts

This trail culminates at a scenic point that offers sweeping views of western Oahu. It is maintained by the US Military, so gaining access takes a bit of work, but it is certainly worth checking out, especially if you are looking for a workout. The trail is frequented by some of Hawaii's most fit military personnel who run the trail regularly. Test your conditioning against theirs for a guaranteed way to get your heart pumping. There is a rock here that was thought to have been the site of human sacrifices, with an ominous shape that leaves little to the imagination. Be careful though! It's rumored to be bad luck if you touch the rock yourself. Though not the easiest to find or most tourist friendly trail on Oahu, the Kolekole Pass can still be a rewarding and scenic way to spend a few hours in paradise.

The military has such a presence on Oahu, you might not think of nature being protected at Schofield Barracks. But it is here. Ask the soldier on duty at the main entrance gate for permission to drive up to Kolekole Pass. A brief 10-minute hike takes you up to a sweeping island view. And on the way up, you'll pass a spiritual rock once used for sacrifices. Don't touch it!Recommended for:Spiritual Seekers
