Trail was a lot of fun. It took me about 3 hours with some stoppage for breaks and pictures! The first mile and a half was pretty standard although expect a lot of incline walking. Once you reach the staircases you’ve got about .75 miles left but it’s mainly uphill from there.

This was my first time hiking this trail and I really didn’t expect to literally be climbing up the side of a mountain. It was a pretty dry day and on the way up I was definitely glad that I had worn hiking boots (a bit of grip) cloud cover came in so it started to rain on my way down and my boots were a godsend!

beautiful ocean view!

It took us less than 3 hours to complete the trail and we would definitely recommend it. We really enjoyed the views and especially hiking on the ridge of the mountain. The trail is really muddy. It gets a little challenging at some point but not that difficult.

SUPER muddy, wet, slippery hike. Easy for the first mile +, then lots of washed out stairs. Worth every step and fall through the mud once you reach the 360 view at the top.

Expect to get super dirty. I’m not sure how bad it is when it hasn’t rained in a few weeks, but some spots are all mud due to no sunlight through the trees.

Go to the top peak. Make it up the steep straits and use the ropes. It’s worth it!

BE CAREFUL GOING DOWN! Super slick. Expect to fall ALOT. Awesome hike as long as you’re okay with being muddy :)

Locals supposedly say this is the one of the best views of the entire island and I can definitely see why. The views at the top are gorgeous and you literally get to see a 360 degree panoramic view of the entire island of Oahu.

The trailhead is located in an affluent neighborhood which kind of reminded me of Beverly Hills houses. The trail starts off in a forest with trees overarching each other and after a few miles it becomes quite an adventure with you ascending up steep and muddy staircases. There's even a section where you need to use a rope to help pull yourself up the stairs.

This trail is so lush and green throughout that it will have you constantly looking in awe of your surroundings. There was alot of mosquitoes/gnats on this trail so recommend that you bring your spray or have long pants and long sleeves while doing this. It became quite annoying. When you get to the top near the antenna, make sure to keep going just a bit further where you will find a bench with the most amazing viewpoint. Be careful on the descent down as alot of the trail is slippery because of the mud!

took an hour to get out to the point and an hour back. easy hiking as it is mostly off road trails. perfect for sunsets and you can see monk seals at the point.

Such a beautiful hike, ended up being a little over 6 miles total, but definitely worth the distance to see the furthest point West and the rest of the Western Ridge. What a feeling to have the mountains on one side of you and the ocean on the other.

The first mile is a dirt road which helps a whole lot. The next 1.5 miles is challenging but not difficult. The challenge is climbing so many steps. It takes a lot of endurance. The view looking back to the city was fantastic. Unfortunately, the clouds settled in towards the top. There was no view from the top. Worth doing if you want exercise and a challenging hike.

This is a pretty easy, cool trail with many different sections and cool plants. The bamboo forest is really interesting to walk through. It's good to go once or twice for a quick, easy nature hike.

lots of vehicle break ins in this area.

Hiked out to the point from the northern parking lot to catch the sunset, a popular reason to do this hike. Bring a flashlight for the way back, although the slow darkness will allow your eyes to adjust. Flat easy out and back which passes you through the Albatross Preserve. My GPS had the out and back from the parking lot closer to 6-miles.

beautiful walk to see both ocean, reefs, wikdlife and mountains of North West Oahu.

Beautiful waves. At at the end there a a beach. We saw seals and baby albatross. Long hike and very hot. Wear a hat.

Awesome hike. The views are great.

We did this yesterday, 10/5/18. This was my third or fourth hike and absolutely loved this. It was fairly difficult for me as well as my friends but challenging difficult not danger difficult. The stairs are plentiful and the trail itself is well kept. Some of the stairs are difficult for short legs. All in all it was 100% worth every min!!

Alltrails should just remove this track altogether.

Went with some friends about a month ago. It was a bit of a challenge due to some rain, but when we got to the top, the clouds cleared for a minute, and the view was amazing. It stared raining on the way back down, and we were a mess of mud. Really fun trail.

This is the Maunawili Trail.

No need to squeeze thru the gate. Start from the Pali Hwy hairpin turn trailhead or from Waimanalo side. You can also start from Maunawili Falls trailhead and use the connector trail to connect to Maunawili Trail.

Maunawili Trail and Maunawili Falls Trail are two different trails.

Beautiful hiking spot along the cost line of Ke'aana point especially afternoon sunset is "AMAZING... You can do it

Same as Maunawili Trail

Great hike with lots of shade. The end is a bit tricky, but worth the view. We went on a day that was fairly overcast. Not for the faint of heart, be ready to climb towards the end.

Best hike on Oahu! Loved the views

Challenging, but a great experience. You meet other friendly group of hikers who are willing to help you out-especially at that point where you need to use the rope to help you ascend this steep/wide gap in the stairs! This is worth the hike!

A long flat hike, relaxing and mostly desolate. Once you get to the bird sanctuary, follow the outside of the fence. About 100ft from the downhill turn, you will see a trailhead to a group of 5 bunkers on the point. If you are going to do this hike, you must do these pillboxes. Out and back is around 6mi and there is 0 cover.

It is easy to squeeze between the gate and the rock wall (even for a bigger guy). Easy hike, passed a few families, with great views. We only went to the falls (there didn't appear to be much of a reason to take the road all the way to the golf course). The falls trail had been impacted by some recent wash out.... nothing unmanageable though.

Solid trail for families, but prepare to get a little muddy...kids like that anyway.

Same as Oneawa Hills hike

Had a lot of fun hiking this with my best friend and her two kids (1.5 and 9). Wear bug repellant. Views are beautiful, buildings are beautiful and show history. Parking is not fun. Be sure and stay in the dirt.

This was for sure closer to 10 miles one way, beautiful trail with lots of tiny waterfalls and beautiful views.

Nice and easy with the kids (11 and 6)
