This is a very heavily trafficked hike, that includes a lot of stairs so be ready for the glutes to burn. Very family friendly trail, with a pretty view of Honolulu. There is dark tunnel part of the way through that's kind of fun and the kids seem to enjoy as well. Overall it's a good hike, that's not too hard but very busy! Also it's a dollar entrance fee per person!
Physically, this trail is on the easier end, though the stairs can be a bit of a workout. I was not winded or in pain from it. But...
There is not much shade, and today it was hot, very humid, and there was very little breeze. This made it a bit miserable.
The views from the top were beautiful, but you are far from alone, so you won't be able to get a 360, but I still got really nice pictures. The way down was very quick. We saw a few ferrets. Then we got Shaved Ice, a Pina Colada smoothie and coconut juice.
