Nice and easy-to-access if you want to get a quick hike in during your day. Can choose to do the short to-the-top path on the asphalt or take a slightly longer path around the southeastern portion of the crater for a longer, slightly more adventurous hike. There is no cover, so best to do in the morning before the sun is too hot. Bring a hat, water, and sunscreen.
Was a great hike went around the top of the ridge line, key tip- park in the neighborhood next to the bay and go through the back behind the road going up its way easier, went down to the end of the trail and still didn't see it so I thought I would share the gps coordinates for the rock bridge

Think Koko Head workout and views without the monotony of doing a billion steps to get to the top.
Incredible views of Koko Head and Hanauma Bay you wouldn't normally see.
Also, if you're daring enough, you can get right down to the water and tide pools on the point.
We lucked out and it was pretty windy, so the heat didn't get too bad. But I can imagine it getting pretty sweltering once you're down off the ridge.
Bring a lot of water, and be ready for killer calf workout. The steep parts, while not overly gravely or slippery is still pretty intimidating.
Very pretty, rock bridge, fishermen huts, Hanauma Bay scenery, Hawaii Kai scenery. Can sometimes see fish and honu from the rock peninsula. The main trail is moderately difficult if you do the loop, to get down to the rock bridge is moderately difficult as well. Love this trail though.
