So many stairs! But a great view and sense of accomplishment.

Hiked up toward the arch and then hiked up over it to the rim trail and then to the summit. Honestly, more enjoyable than the stair trail and way less people. Longer, though not as much of a cardio workout, but between the arch and the constant view from atop the rim trail, this hike was well worth it!

I just did the first peak. it took about an hour up and an hour back. pretty empty trail starting at 6:30 on a Wednesday morning. I only saw 4 other people the whole time. The trail was a little muddy, but not as bad as I expected from other reviews....not sure when it last rained hard. I wore my old running shoes and did just fine with them.

We love this hike! We do it whenever we come home. It's not good to do when it's hot and the there's a lot more erosion between the railroad ties than there used to be. The view at the top is pretty and the breeze is relaxing. My kid has been able to do this hike since he was 5.

I really enjoyed this hike. Nice incline, plenty of roots to grasp on, and rope climbs. The route was quite muddy from rainfall but spectacular views. I would recommend good footwear for climbing and scaling the walls. Beyond the first peak, I'd recommend a love for heights! Great time!

We parked outside the golf course entrance on the side of the road and then walked to the start of the trail down the road leading to the golf course.

One of the best trails I've hiked in Hawaii! Starts relatively gradual, but gets steep the closer you get to the top! Most people only do the first peak, but for the extra challenge it's fun to knock out the second and third peaks as well!

Starts just to the right when walking toward Pali Lookout. Don't let the distance and elevation of this hike deceive you into thinking its quick and easy. Its steep with elements of rock climbing mixed in. I would recommend leaving this one alone if it's raining or just rained. That being said, one of the coolest hikes you can do on a nice day!

Very beautiful hike. They did update the gate outside the Pali lookout, but still somewhat easy to sneak through the sides on the gate.

If you wanna to see seals-just do it! 3,5 hours total and you will never forget it! Make sure to wear comfortable shoes, sunglasses and hat. Don’t forget water, camera and have fun!

Pretty easy hike but very muddy if it’s rained. It was raining today but we still went and it was worth it. Definitely bring water, we forgot to and we’re dying lol

It was so peaceful and beautiful! It’s a little hard to find at first but I found some good directions online. If you know of the Pali highway the dirty parking lot for lulumahu falls you can park there and then the road to your right is called Nu’uanu Pali Drive you can either walk down there and at the very end you’ll see where it is or you can drive down there and park next to the water pipeline building. Which will be on your right side. It’s a little up the road to the right hand side across the street from water pipe line building. Be very respectful and don’t throw trash it’s a very quiet peaceful Hawaiian sacred. Grounds. If you posted pictures of mine give directions as well as it’s hard to fine

Awesome hike. Not easy, not very hard either. Waterfall is great. One of the best in Oahu. CAUTION:: don’t leave valuables in your car. My Jeep Wrangler rental had the front right window bashed out. I was parked in the main parking lot (along with maybe 20 other cars) right off the highway.

It is an arduous upward hike but the fellow hikers make it fun.

It's a short but hard hike. It isn't dangerous and a nice hike. Must-do in Oahu.

Not bad, but crowded and too many people trying to run the trail.

Trail is a “rail road” with washed out sections between ties. Not exactly easy walking when concerned about footing most of the way... probably why it has a Hard rating. Otherwise, not too difficult (my 7yr old daughter made it).

Nice views at the top.

We did the hike on an overcast/misty day. Couldn’t imagine trying this on a sunny day as there is no shade.

Tougher than it looked, worth it tho for the views and breeze at the top.

Can get very muddy! it was a great hike and a gorgeous waterfall!

Absolutely beautiful! Flat hike with stunning views the entire way! Perfect hike for an overcast day! Please bring a bag with you and pick up a little trash along the way! Always leave a hike cleaner than you found it! I’ll def be back soon!

Hard, but worth it! Some sketchy areas but nothing too bad. Lots of people as well.

Amazing views. Once you get to the top you can hike the ridge trail as well.

the final scramble/tech climb to top of the peak is worth it...keep going past the window!

Challenging but worth it!

Pretty good little hike. Short and sweet, but the scramble up at the top had me a bit tense due to some loose rocks but all was well. Park at the blowhole, walk the trail along the inside of the guard rail past eternity beach. The cross the highway and start heading up.

Try going up at night. Take your time remember to bring a good head lamp.At the bridge go another way around it until you come out to the other side. It will be okay and then continue up the stairs. The views at night are spectacular and there was no one on the trail. So if you hate crowds I recommend going at night bring lots of water n food.

Great workout! Lots of people, but everyone was friendly. Bring sunscreen as there is very little shade. Make some time to explore the top... There are a few different views to see! Some of the stairs are awkwardly spaced. I honestly thought it was harder to get down.

Love love love this trail! The views from the top are amazing and the other hikers are always friendly. Get there early and make sure you leave time to sit up top and enjoy!

A hiker fell to his death today while on the third peak of Ahiki.
