Very solid trail and a good hike. Would rate it as "easy" for the majority of the hike with a nice little "moderate" climb at the end. The trail itself seemed very well marked and easy to follow. Beware overhead branches - the trail is very rooty and muddy and you may find yourself running into a tree branch if you are looking at your footing too much. There is one section near the top where the mountain seems to have washed out underneath the trail. You can still navigate across the roots but it isn't solid ground. Hopefully some trail maintenance in the near future will fix this. The view at the top is great - much more peaceful than the overcrowded photo area at the trailhead.

Wow!! It was a great one. Bring water! Although it’s mainly shaded it was very warm and humid. Very muddy after it rains!! Beautiful trees, crossed a couple of streams, and the terrain was up and down until the last 30 min or so - then it was challenging switchbacks all the way up!! The view is worth it. Watch carefully for trail markers...there aren’t a lot!!

Fairly easy trail, really cool short hike through the jungle with a beautiful water fall at the end. You can drive up to the trail head in a car (first water crossing) but we had to park a ways down and hike up because we only had a small rental car that did not have a lot of ground clearance. If we didn’t have a gps leading the way i would have thought we were driving to through the locals neighborhood, there are not any signs leading to the trail head until you get there

Amazing hike, giving you a tremendous view of Moorea! We arrived at the top just in time before the clouds came in and brought some rain while we were descending. Its not recommended to walk with rain (this wasn’t forecasted) the trail gets super slippery and therefore takes much more time going downhill and is kind of dangerous. Nevertheless the views are amazing and the hike is not that tough! Enjoy

This has been my favorite hike on Mo’orea, though Rotui was also pretty awesome and I would suggest checking it out. The hike took my friends and I five hours round trip but that included an hour break at the top. I would suggest wearing pants for the ferns can that cut up your legs, and I definitely wouldn’t do it when it’s raining. Also, the last section is rather steep but has ropes to help you get to the top. The hike is super cool and highly recommend it to anyone inclined.

What a hike, and what a view!!! The hike starts off with a steep vertical section, then you follow a creek up through the valley (crossing back and forth over the creek a dozen times or so). After a short section through the forest, you reach the sun exposed ridge. Absolutely do not do this in the rain (or if it has been raining), the last portion is challenging enough as is :)

Great trail to see the island, particularly if it hasn’t rained in a couple of days. Need to watch steps to avoid ankle sprains, but enjoyable hike

Took us a bit less than 3 hours including some time for pictures at the top. The hike itself is covered, but the views once you get to the top are amazing!

Pretty easy trail, but slippery even though it wasn’t rainy. Swimming hole too shallow to swim but the waterfall is pretty sweet.

Great hike with excellent views of the bays. Muddy in areas, but worth the trek.

Trail was very muddy in places, but not impassable. Bring water and bug spray. The views at the top are beautiful.

Trail was beautiful but muddy. We are fairly novice hikers but in good shape and we found the trail a bit difficult in spots.

Beautiful waterfall at the end of an enchanting, scenic, slippery trail.

A hike with everything...river crossings, shade through tropical forest sections, sun on exposed ridges, vertical rope sections and amazing views. A challenging hike/climb with an amazing summit. Weather dependent.
