Waianae Mountain Range

Information about the Waianae Mountain Range that separate West Oahu and Central Oahu. The Volcano that formed the Waianae Mountains also formed the western one third of the island of Oahu.

There are two mountain ranges on the island of Oahu and each was formed by a different volcano. The Koolau Volcano formed the eastern part of the island and the Waianae Volcano formed the western part. The Waianae Volcano is the oldest of the two.

The Waianae Range is warmer and drier then the Koolau Range the Waianaes don't have the lush tropical vegetation you will see in the Koolaus. The Waianae Mountains are especially dry and susceptible to forest fires during the summer. The earth on this part of the island is red.

The Waianae mountain range is about 22 miles long, it averages about 2900 feet in elevation. It's highest peak, Mount Kaala, is also the highest spot on the island of oahu at 4025 feet.
