What a fun trail! It’s definitely not easy at all as it’s just straight stairs and will seriously work your Legs and booty as a lot of the stairs are big steps apart! Tons of cardio, but there are spots you can take in the view, catch your breath and grab some water, to get going again. I however wouldn’t say dangerous though. There’s one spot where you step carefully on railroad ties where there’s nothing beneath you lol but if you take it slow, pay attention and be careful you’ll be fine. People were doing it with kids and babes in a pack, but they are experienced. I did this one after I did stairway to heaven and although stairway to heaven was smaller stairs (shorter step) it was 1000x harder in my opinion bc it was longer, steeper, so high and just so so many stairs. So I wasn’t even sore after this one, but this is one I’m planning on doing monthly just for the cardio as it’s safe and legal, so that helps. Most people stop at the top, but keep going... there’s a million little rabbit trails and those are so fun to explore with quiet amazing views! It was so breathtaking! Loved everything about this hike! Just make sure to bring water Probably best to hike in earlier am as I did it late morning/noon time and it got pretty toasty, and there isn’t a ton of shade so just an idea, but totally a must do!

We visited the falls today after finishing the Old Pali Highway. The waterfalls weren’t flowing much today, but they were beautiful nonetheless. We will go back after a storm!

This was a great trail. It wasn’t hard and offered so many beautiful things to see! We ventured off to visit the Pali Twin Falls as well, but the falls were barely flowing today.

Like others have mentioned, difficult to follow this trail and AllTrails is not correct. It’s off of Nuuanu Pali Drive - hop over the bent over fence, and go straight down what looks like a dirt road. We followed the AllTrails map after hopping the fence and ended up bushwhacking somewhere parallel to the actual trail (up way higher than we should have been), which was just frustrating. Came back via the actual trail and it was a very nice, easy hike. A little bit muddy, but not nearly as bad as some of the other trails are right now.

The top of the mountain was gold. However the whole hike up does not offer any views because of the hike being seriously over grown. Probably wouldn’t do this one again any time soon.

Did all three peaks, second peak has generally the largest view since once you’re at the third peak you can’t see towards Kaneohe Bay and all those ridgelines. Fun hike with good variety of features.

Great trail, beautiful views. Lots of children and a few dogs. A bit muddy but completely walkable.

Great trail but definitely a challenge due to combination of length, scrambles and elevation changes. Lots of shade which was nice but still some great views. I wore micro-spikes which are very helpful on the muddy and slick parts of the trail.

Tough trail as it had been raining for weeks but very rewarding views, prepare to wade streams and get wet. If you don’t have a permit which get booked well in advance then park at the beach a mile way and walk to the trail head

Me and a couple friends did this hike yesterday and it was a little tougher than expected. This is definitely not a beginner's hike. It was muddy and having spikes helps big time. The real hike begins about 2.5 miles in the trail, be ready for the challenge but the views from the peak are to die for especially on a clear day! We met couple people that got lost, so make sure you get on the right path. It took us 3.5hrs going up and 3hrs coming down, so bring lots of water (I'd recommend a Camelback and two more strapped bottles). you'll need all four limbs at certain points of the hike, especially the steep part where you'll use the ropes. Overall great hike and gives you a sense of accomplishment.

Parking is kinda bad but trail is in great shape, and the view is pretty awesome from the top. Highly recommend if you are a pretty decent hiker.

Oh my goodness, this may be my new favorite. This trail had everything I enjoy: rocky parts, steep parts, flat parts, amazing trees, the views at the top were beautiful! The wind was mighty! I found it challenging but so much fun! Parking was easy, the trail was simple to find and follow. I loved the collection of walking sticks near the beginning. So much fun! My favorite part was the blanket of pine needles- it made it so silent I could hardly hear my footsteps. So peaceful!
