Very fun and challenging hike, you will feel like a baby deer walking down it though!

Beautiful views at the top and the military history is neat. Had a guy feint from heat at the top who had to be flown out by helicopter. Not a long hike but stay hydrated with the heat and stairs.

Beautiful views of the ocean as you like . Cool lighthouse and view at the top. fairly crowded but that is typical of most trails in Oahu.

Easy for the first half getting harder for the other half. But when u reach the top is feel so great

Pretty easy but fun. Nice view and beautiful beach for sigh seeing

4/21/18 Drop dead gorgeous views at every step! It has moderate steepness but the rewarding views are worth it! Definitely need microspikes! Some spots were a bit slippery/on edge!

if you are out of shape this hike will kill you lol

A few friends and I hiked this trail about 2 weeks ago right after it snowed about 3 feet. It was the most beautiful and breathtaking hike I’ve ever done.

I did this when I first got here. There’s better views out there that involve an actual hike

I appreciate this spot only as a workout. The view at the top was good, but other than that nothing really to see.

Hiking in the snow! Great scenery along the way! Many folks had skis or snow shoes, but I was just fine with crampons and poles. I had a really hard time with the lungs of flatlander, but you feel awesome when you come off that last ridge.

A fun workout hike! Views make it worth it

4/20/18 Steeper than I expected. There’s a period of elevation in the beginning where I got worn out, then it evens out for a bit and you get excited/ relieved and the last portion steepens with large rocks.
There is a restroom about 2/3 of the way up.
There wasn’t a parking fee when I went.
The lake wasn’t frozen. This trail would be better during summer when the trees come back to life!

I do this hike weekly. Nice and easy a lot of people usually stop at the pillboxes but the hike continues on I say stop enjoy the view get pictures and then continue on.

This was my first hiking experience in Colorado and I’ll never forget it. There are several scenic places along the trail that would each be worthy destinations. The last of the lakes on the trail, Emerald Lake, is a generous reward for a moderate half-day hike.

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

Busy, but awesome views!

Hiked on 4/18 to stretch our legs during vacation. Temp was perfect at 8:30a. Tall grass on the shoulder of the well marked path. We both wore shorts and had no issues. Took approx 25 mins to get up and 20 down. Perfect place to share a lunch or a beverage. Recommended for anyone who brought trail shoes. Mahalo.

great hike. limited parking

What an amazing view at the top! This is a great hike to take visitors to. It's not too long, not too hard, and such an amazing payoff at the end!

As always, start early!

Extremely popular trail. We started at 6:30 in the morning and didn't have to share Emerald Lake with too many people, so going early will earn you a little more serenity. It's gorgeous all the way there.

Easy walk, but usually very crowded, which isn't fun IMHO. The views are pretty, but doesn't make it worth freaking with the amount of people.

Pretty views, and great whale sighting during the season. Definitely a walk as the path is well paved (moms with strollers jog this all the time). Great for anyone that needs an even surface.

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.

Hiked this on a Monday, 4/16 ~0930. Only shared the trail with 1 other couple but the lot was filled by the time we left. Microspikes absolutely needed, gorgeous hike! Can be difficult to find the trail at first, just take a left at the huge boulder after Nymph

We hiked this with 4 kids aged 5 through 9. We made many stops along the way but was delightfully enjoyed by all. We were there in July, the trail was crowded but less so as we passed the first two lakes. We swam in the lake, it was wicked cold, and then basked in sun on the large rocks to dry off. Great times by all.

Easy walk. Twin Falls are beautiful. Even though there are many people around, it was worth it to see the falls. Not a private hike. Not long.

Kind of a crazy day today- winds reached up to 90 mph in the Denver area, and even in Estes the winds were blowing pretty bad (although not quite THAT bad). When we started off the hike, it was sunny and blue skies, with only a few clouds. By the time we got to the lake there were snow pellets slapping against our faces and we had to cover our faces as much as we could on the way down so we could see where we were going. We got pretty cold and wet, but the hike was worth it. Can’t wait to do this again in the summer!

A fun quick hike, the stairs at the topi are killer but well worth the view from the top!
