Super hike. Once you get to the picnic table/rest area, make the effort to go up to the peak. A little more technical but worth it! Spectacular views.

A very nice hike with a fantastic view at the end. A steady incline keeps the legs burning and your lungs working. A nice surprise that there was a lack of mud compared to other hikes on the island. A must to make it to the top to see the view.

A great trail through many woods and jungle with plenty of beautiful vistas.

do this hike at sunrise!! leave while it is dark and hike up to see sunrise from the top. amazing views

Great hike, hard incline but worth it. Took two teenagers and they did just fine.
Go all the way to the tip top!

It was worth the hike. Lots of people.

Good solid hike with great views at the top. Could see Oahu today and two distant Whale breaches.

Good workout going up

Slippery towards the top, but ends with great views. Would recommend for a shorter hike

Very good hike, make sure being few bottles of water with you and when u get to the top, make sure go further to the second rock. It's a must! So worth it! View is just unreal!!! Will take 2 and half hrs total with 15-20 min break at the top! I recommend to bring a sandwich and few snacks! Enjoy!

The original poster and map doesn't even do half of this trail. The total length is over 5 miles both ways and is a wonderful way to spend your last day in paradise as the flight out isn't till 10 PM...shower at the YMCA.

Very cool shorter trial with a hairy ending up at the giant's head! Make sure you go all the way up to the top, past the picnic area! Easy access from Kapaa so a nice day hike.

This was a relatively easy distance with a consistent incline throughout. We hiked off to the left of the picnic tables to scale the nose and get a better vantage point. The views from there were amazing, but I would advise others to exercise caution, as there is clearly a sign telling people not to hike beyond the path on the way to the nose (and I'm sure that the sign was put there for a reason). Watch out for protruding tree roots, as they are plentiful, and be mindful of recent rainfall. We hiked on a very dry day, but mud would have made things more challenging.

I hike this at least once a week if I can, it's the best exercise!

Nice view at the top. Can be quite challenging at steep grounds. I recommend to follow track and try to avoid the "shortcuts" cause it might lead to nowhere. Good hike otherwise. Thanks to the tree roots for traction to prevent us from sliding down.

We loved it! The path was semi blocked by freshly fallen trees (windy weather) but otherwise an amazing view at the top

Vista views along the way...about 4 miles total round trip if you go from the trailhead on the app. Once you get to the picnic tables on top, you can keep going to the left to the "nose", which is narrow in places and very high!!! The sign says that the trail ends. Worth the view. Definitely more of a summit-type hike. The first 1.5 miles are switch backs with a moderate incline and the major reward (for me anyway) was at the tip top.
