WOW!!!! difficult trail; not for the faint-hearted. I did the full loop, which took me just under 5 hours to complete. Started at 8:30AM and finished at about 12:00PM; fortunately the weather was on my side and remained cloudy for the majority of the hike. I can't imagine doing this in the summer with the sun beating down.
Very slippery, so wear the right shoes. I recommend gloves; I did not have any and payed the price the following day. Bring water; I carried a 2.5 liter Camelback and ran out at about 3/4 of the trail.
Definitely not a running trail, be ready to walk, crawl, slide, slip, and jump your way through this very challenging trail.
Good luck.

Very easy and a bit touristy, but beautiful

Great hike. Good for kids, shady, nice stream along the way. Pretty steep in a few places.

Go for sunrise! Not for those with bad knees...watch footing on uneven steps on the way down.

Hi, I'm hoping to join someone or tag along with a group if possible. Hoping to do this Monday morning, early is fine. Text me (imsg) on +447828867729 mahalo Bec

If you're coming from Manoa the first mile or mile and half is all incline but after that is super easy. There are some few ropes on some parts of the trail. We went when it was super cloudy, but decided to stay at the top a bit longer and it eventually cleared up. You can overlook Kaneohe, Kailua, Waimanalo, Diamond Head, the airport runway and of course Ka'au Crater. There are 2 falls summit. Other than the super crazy incline in the beginning this hike is super awesome! Would do it again.
