Decent enough hike, prefer one with a more scenic finish.
Was a nice short hike, easy to stay on the path, lots of tree roots to climb over. It's overgrown so no real breathtaking views. Great to do with friends, family and of course 4 legged companions.
Loved this trail! Great views! It is 2miles to the top so 4 miles round trip!
One of the muddiest, easy trails I know of. Great trail for youngsters, the whole fam but be ready to slip and slide if you don't have hiking shoes.
Pretty much an easy incline the entire way, with a few steeper spots. I'd call it leisurely if it weren't for how muddy it can be! There are some rooty, slippery parts.
Toward the end, you go through some prickly foliage, not a big deal, but if you're sensitive to that, wear some pants.
It's covered just about the whole time, until the end, which is nice. The view at the end isn't a jaw-dropper, but it is great and totally worth the quick hike. Nothing at the end of the trail but a small clearing and an uncomfortable bench that can seat 2.5 skinny people.
Street parking only, and you'll be walking through a residential area to be quiet and respectful.

Pros absolutely beautiful! Scenic point right before the bench I cried at the beauty of the majestic mountain range and rainforest! Good little workout if you're taking it easy.
Cons too short!! That's why I deducted a star.
Nice! Short and sweet!
simple but sweet
Nice little hike. End was a bit disappointing. But still enjoyed the hike.
Muddy, lots of tree roots, scenic top limited because of trees and bushes
Nice hike, easy for everyone, great workout.
Great trail for a run or a jog or an easy mountain stroll. Some great views of the valley, the garden, and the city. Great for kids / family.
Directions from this ap are incorrect to trailhead. Great hike for kids. Great view at the top with a nice spot to sit and have lunch.
This trailhead is in the most inconvenient place for tourists and the most convenient place for the residents in the area. To all visitors: Please pay attention to the "No Parking" signs. Don't block anyone's driveways or mailboxes. This trail is completely an uphill climb. The beginning (bottom) of the trail happens to have a lot of loose rocks, so be careful of spraining an ankle. The trail is very well used and offers a challenging trail run for anyone that enjoys running. The trail quickly forks into the Puu Pia and Kolowalu Trails. Go left for the shorter Puu Pia trail. The Kolowalu Trail leads to the Waahila Ridge Trail. IF you like a thigh burning hike and lots of shade this is a great hike for you.
