Dream Hikes Map

It was busy trail, but very green and lush. Nice stream. Some people were not happy sharing the trail with other dogs and seemed to be anoyed . Some were nice. Seems to be a populated suburban area and butted up to a housing development.

Best panoramic views I’ve seen on Oahu. My knees took a beating but it was a really fun trail with a few exciting rope scrambling spots, beautiful ridge views and sweeping island views.

Was a great hike! But we did it in a rainy day, the way up was very muddy and slippery! I will come back for sure but sunny day :)

It was really muddy & full of mosquitoes. Don't worry about getting dirty, muddy, or wet. Have fun!

The lake is more like a pond but still pretty. The 90 degree angled granite in the background is what will take your breath away though.

Did this in the winter and it was a beautiful.

Great medium-difficulty ridgeline trail for hikers new to ridgelines. Well maintained and not as dangerous or slippery as many others. Starts off a little muddy on an ATV track (you might see boar hunters) and soon leads to a path along the ridge, with great views the whole way. Easy going until the last half mile when you gain the most elevation, using stairs and rope to scamper straight up. When you get to the radio tower, this isn’t the top!! There’s still about 5 minutes until you reach the true peak (with a bench - thank you to whoever set that up)

Took us a few hours, I recommend heading out before the sun is high and bringing water. Snacks not necessary if you eat a big breakfast. It was cloudy when we went but still got amazing views, became 100% foggy at the highest peak but got lots of good photos/looks before that.

trail is in good shape, the stairs make it a workout but the view is worth it

Loved this one. Took a lot less time than Kuliouou and I felt that it was easier. Great views at the top, one moderately challenging rope section because a few stairs fell out and it was quite muddy. Recommended!

Relatively easy hiking, lots of smaller loops and side trails off the main one, interesting history woven into the experience- not too crowded.

Such a beautiful snowy day for a wonderful trail

Looking to do this hike between 2/28 and 3/9.
Anyone else out there interested???


Out & Back-5.6 mi. Moderate. Well marked. Trail in ok condition. Erosion in some sections. 0.3 mi from parking to trailhead. First mi easy up broad trail. Short .1 mi section beyond campsite steep/rocky. Remainder is steady mod climb to jxn with Chimney Top Tr. Hike along stream down low and mult waterfalls higher. Really nice after a recent rain. Trail is a stream on mult sections. Many wild boar. Pretty hike.

Extremely muddy but the view was amazing. Be very carefully of slipping. Very steep at parts and mud makes it much harder. Bring shoes that you don’t care about getting destroyed. Views only get better the higher that you go.

started my hike at Yosemite village, went to half dome village,then on to mirror lake, absolutely beautiful there, from there I went to the ahwanee hotel where I ate my lunch on the back lawn and felt like a king.after lunch I set off for Yosemite falls,then walked through cooks meadow to sentinel bridge.came in February in hopes of seeing horsetail falls at sunset but alas we're back in a drought year and there just haven't been enough precipitation, but I'm not disappointed, after all I'm in Yosemite it's beautiful here and no crowds!

This trail was unexpectedly magical. It took me much longer than expected to hike this trail because there were so many places you wanted to stop and look around. There’s so many side trails to explore. The trail itself is very clearly marked and easy to follow. Well worth the drive from Nashville :)

easy going trail with good views!

Finished in 2014 what I started in 2012. A "must do" for any backpackers' bucket list

hiked this in 2012...it was meant to be a thru hike but partner got sick so we had to leave right about the half way point. I went back 2 years later and finished it. One of the crown jewels in US places to backpack.

Just a short walk to the trailhead from Upper Pines Campground, which is where we camped. It was an easy hike, and we enjoyed the beautiful views of Half Dome. We were surprised to find the water level at Mirror Lake was pretty low at this time of year, but a nice walk nonetheless.

Beautiful hike, lots of amazing views. Saw two doe mule deer yesterday. Went around in a clockwise direction, this brings you by the interpretive section at the beginning of the hike.

10/10. Loved every step of this trail. I suggest counter clockwise. The climb up trail raider from clockwise direction looked miserable. Glad I was going down!

This is the single most impactful trail I've ever experienced. The JMT, when done it its 211 mile entirety, will yield lifelong cherished memories. Its not easy, and you must do months of preparation. Its beauty is absolutely breathtaking. I cannot recommend this trail highly enough. Six stars.

Gorgeous views.

Absolutely love this hike, especially with my kiddo. Beautiful overlooks, a couple waterfalls, and everyone has fun (0 whinnying).

Fun hike with a good view !! Another trail checked off my list !

have done it end past 2 years. Going again in April

Very nice trail with a rewarding view at the top, be aware that the heat can be blistering on hot days and the trail/ terrain can be impossible when wet and rainy.
