    Jerry Francis reviewed Waimano Ridge Trail

    17 days ago

    long hike, moderately difficult until you factor in its length and last 2 miles or so, which together may make this more difficult than it looks on paper. last segment up to the summit is relatively muddy and overgrown. could do with a dog because no climbing. 6 hours at a moderate pace

    underwhelming. would do for sunrise or if you're already stopped at the blowholes but not as a single destination hike.

    enjoyed this little trafficked trail. the start is easy to find and then either direction a steep climb up to the ridgeline. trail is mostly well marked and fairly wide with the exception of a small portion leading up to KST via the wailupe middle ridge and KST itself. view from the top great on a clear day. took about three hours for an experienced hiker on a dry day

    fun hike up a dirt trail that turns steeply uphill (45degrees) before becoming a nice bouldering/climbing ridgeline to the top. great views. caution the exposed hike is a lot of sun. the gate at the bottom doesn't open until 7-8 am so be prepared to street parking and hop a couple fences. 4 hours for an experienced hiker at a moderate pace

    lots of ups and downs and good views along the way make this a fun hike that I'll definitely do again. pretty exposed though, so make sure to have plenty of water. last portion rather muddy but not usually so for a ridgeline hike ascent. final 0.2 miles along KST has a lot of slick spots and a few portions without a real trail, which I'd avoid if you're not looking for a challenge. about 4:30 in decent weather by an experienced hiker, suggest pants for second half or so.

    mostly uphill hike, trail in pretty good condition for most of the way although some may struggle on a few muddy portions/climbs. views on the way up of west side well worth the hike even if summit is foggy. at a good clip for an experienced hiker 4 hours round trip. fair number of people on trail after about 10am on a weekend

    nice hike close to Honolulu. lots of mud and a few tricky spots even in good weather. often cloudy at the top but still a fun one. don't need pants for this one but some shoes with tread are helpful. 3 hours at a decent clip in good conditions for an experienced hiker, probably around 5 for less experienced taking breaks. shout-out to Joel, nice running into a fellow AllTrails hiker!

    easy trailhead to find, just keep a lookout for the turn off the loop trail onto aiae ridge. moderately difficult hike mostly due to narrow, muddy ridgeline portion of the hike. the ascent is a fairly steady climb and the trail is in decent condition, although lots of scratchy ferns and mud. nice views of the h3 but i got caught in the rain so I can't comment on the view from the summit. took between 5 and 5.5 hours at a decent pace by an experienced hiker

    great hike overall. close to Honolulu, moderately challenging (lots of stairs), decently maintained trail, and great views along the way and at the summit. to get to the trailhead you need to get a pass from the gate which requires a valid ID from the driver and caps the number of people on the trail. can get a little slick when it rains. at a decent pace around 2 hours but closer to 3-4 if you need to take the stairs slowly or long breaks

    Ridgeline, crater, and waterfall all in one hike. fun hike! just shy of 4 hours for an experienced hiker in small amount of rain. did fine in tennis shoes and didn't have to pull out the crampons. I would advise leaving plenty of time before sundown because the trail is difficult to navigate in the dark even with a light

    Jerry Francis reviewed Manana Ridge Trail to Ko'olau Summit

    6 months ago

    would call this a moderately difficult hike. good variety of scenery and lots of up and downs but a somewhat aniticlimatic assent to the summit. there wasn't a single place the ropes we're necessary. biggest challenges were mud and ferns. would advise long pants but I did fine in running shies. overall enjoyable with a nice view on a clear day.. finished in 7:15

    street parking and walk around the elementary school grounds, up a walk, and cut through the playground along the fence and the trailhead is pretty obvious. quick ascent up to radar road and then a fairly monotonous up and down ridge hike until near the end. the sights along the way are ok. lots of scratchy ferns. the final ascent is where this gets a hard rating. definitely more fun at the end and probably for more experienced folks. took 7 hours total including breaks at an easy pace.
