The shortest trail I think I have ever done, it kicked butt! Took 6 friends and we all really enjoyed it. Lots of places to explore. LOTS of spiders! Awesome for such a short distance, lots of bang for the walking distance and no boring stretches.

It was an amazing trail with the sound of the ocean and walking through the forest. Easy hike for beginners like me! Make sure to carry enough water to last the trail .

super cool trail. it's short but took us about 30 mins. full of climbs up and down rocks through caves. we parked at the castle ruins and then walked through the education center, down the stairs, took a right down a driveway passed a camping area and then followed the red arrow to the trail.

It was easy but steep. Must wear hiking boots even 2days after the rain because of all the mud.

Wish I would have paid more attention to some of the other reviews before we got there. We wondered around for a bit before cutting through the abandoned “Resident Evil / Walking Dead” building (we went on a Sunday) to the beginning of the trail. After we got to the wooded area my kids stopped freaking out about getting away from the zombies. We then began to realize that the mosquitoes were out in full force and we should have brought some bug repellent. The trail was great, but it is probably not what I would consider kid friendly. My children are 7 and 9 and were able to get around just fine but near the cliffs, my wife and I were on edge (HAHAHA! LOL! see what I did there?) at more than a few points.

Loved this hike. The Rock Garden scramble was fun, the view from the top was amazing, and the hike down to Arima Onsen was an interesting aside. A variety of ups downs and flats, as well as different terrain, and the purple flowering trees were amazing. It helps to have a photo of the Japanese characters for 'Mt. Rokko' and 'Arima Onsen' to help with navigation. (No English signs at all.)

Great hiking trail. A bit muddy since it had rained the day before. Nice cave and shrine and stone bridge on the trail.

Great hike if you have kids. If you are coming from the parking area when you get the the Y go right towards stairs and you will see the shrine and cave. Go left to the cafe, down the stairs to the bridge and up towards 58.

Nice well shade trail. A few muddy spots and a well rutted trail. Some great views going up and at the tower. Some steep sections. A section at the top portion of the trail is not worth going past the cable gate. Trashed area but some old guy lives there.

I did a poor job of following the Indy Jones Adventure Mile Trail. I started at the Tamagusuku Jo castle ruins and explored them, cut through the woods until I reached the Indy Jones trail and went backwards on that trail until I wandered off onto what turned out to be the “Tamaki Youth House Puzzle Trail” (if google translate can be trusted). Fun trail that ended on the road with a short side walk stroll back to the car.

Was a good trail. Started off with a steep incline of rocks (stairs) that were slippery. When you come upon what looks like a house go left. And then you’ll see shrines & caves up ahead and bear right to further trail which leads to observatory tower (seems like you’ll never get to it but just keep pushing along) . Can see a lot from the top. Trail was very overgrown and muddy in some spots. Can say I’ve completed the trail but wouldn’t go back.
