Pretty steep. Beautiful view the whole way.

Great view

A very pleasant, steep, short hike (30 minutes max) to an amazing view. Go check it out on a nice, dry day to avoid slippery mud, and check out Lanikai Beach after!

Fun hike. Starts really steep. At the top it started sprinkling with a rainbow and gorgeous view. As we started down it poured. The trail turned veerrry slippery and was a bit dangerous getting down. Everyone seemed to make it, but were using hands as well as feet to get down and were covered head to butt to toe in mud. It was an unexpected (admittedly fun since we made it down safely) experience.

Incredible views and a good hike to get the heart pumping.

Great, short hike. Steep start, but becomes easier. Very heavily trafficked; go half an hour before sunrise for the best views. Plenty of small children and dogs at the top, but be careful of sheer drops with your pets! Be respectful of neighbours when parking your car too.

The description says it all. I think this is a good hike to do when and if you're in the area or visiting the beach. Great view and the hike is fairly easy. Family friendly but just watch for the little ones. The day I went it wasn't muddy but I can imagine it being muddy and slippery in certain sections if it had rained recently. Just be careful about that. Enjoy the view.

Great Hike

Easy hike - make sure you keep going past the pillboxes! Lots of rain lately, but not bad if you stay near the edge. Overall, pretty relaxing and enjoyable!

Fun hike after the rain, the mud made it more challenging.
