Nice trail and easy to access from the road (by Sunset elementary school). It was dry despite a few days of on/off rain. Great views from the top and the pillbox offered some war history. The strawberry guava bushes were plentiful, with red ripe yummy fruit. The rope and stairs made the red clay trail manageable. There was one hiker with a baby on her back so it is a family friendly trail. Can get bit by mosquitoes but they don't itch for long.
My wife and I are not extreme hikers. We like to go for our walks when we get a chance because our 4 children's keep us busy. So we left early in morning for this small hike. It was perfect did not take too long nor it was too short of a hike. We got back to our hotel right in time before our kids got up. Awesome! View.
Great short hike. The beginning is a thigh killer than after its very flat. First pillbox is very cool. I didn't go to the 2nd because there were signs of it being on "private property," and there were "dogs." Just park at Sunset Elementary, and the trail goes up by the gate.
It's a strange path at the start since its next to a school. It's a quick hike, not too high and a pretty view of the houses and ocean below. A little difficult to get down after a downpour but there are ropes tied to some of the trees to help you.
