Muddy in parts, but I did it in tennis shoes (though they ended up covered in mud). I'm usually a mosquito magnet but didn't have any spray and only got one bite. I went clockwise, beautiful views on the way down. Parts of the trail are covered with soft, springy pine needles that were great to hike on. I saw footsteps but didn't see anyone on the trail. Great birdsong and trees! Don't do this for the waterfalls (they're pretty small) but otherwise a very pretty hike.
First hike in Hawaii. Easy trail, slightly muddy but great views.
it was my first hike. it was fun and beautiful. a little muddy. beautiful mountain views.
It was a bit muddy and slippery in spots which made for a more difficult hike. But it was very serene and only saw 4 others the entire loop. Will definitely come back to the area again!
Good starter hike. Lots of bugs, but Off! kept those away. Left at about 8am. Easy trail to follow. Maybe a mile of hard-is terrain. Plenty of mud, but easily passable. Good views but not spectacular. Was right by where we stayed though so the accessibility was nice. At the end of the day if you're out in nature, it's a win, but this one's definitely just a primer.
i thought this trail was easy but also enjoyable and laid back. alot of good views.
This is a great trail and the easiest of the 3 Hau'ula Trails.
There is LOTS of Mud, especially after a rain storm; make sure to have good shoes. Also there are TONS of mosquitoes, make sure you're wearing repellent or you will be eaten alive.
Really nice hike with some great mountain views once you get up on the ridge. Definitely muddy in the very shared spots but it was a nice way to feel like you're in the jungle on a mountain!
