Anybody doing this trail today got room for another? My last full day on the island and hear this is the best one!

FAULTY ANCHOR ON THE BACK SIDE OF 3RD PEAK!!! Please backtrack the way you came and do not continue past the 3rd peak. Otherwise this hike is spectacular.

If you’re looking for an amazing mountain too viewpoint, this is it. Not a trail for the faint of heart. There was a lot of rock climbing and steep inclines throughout the entire trail. Getting up to the first peak was very narrow with all rock climbing towards the top but all of that work was worth it !!! My group made it up to the first peak in an hour and didn’t have enough time to explore the other two peaks. Bring enough water and wear supportive footwear. Happy trailing !!

Def a lot of mud for the first mile or so. I was hoping some of it had dried up! The rock faces were somewhat challenging but there are ropes to help! I did this solo and it took about an hour to get to the top of the first peak. I would recommend only doing this if you are in good shape.

Finished this hike on feb 24! One of the best hikes I’ve done on the island. Super super muddy for about a mile up the hill where it starts to get heavily inclined. Highly suggest climbing to the third peak if you are comfortable with heights and rock climbing. Some parts were scary to climb up, even with rope assistance because of the vertical drops and narrow ridge path. Any questions/info/or wanna hike hit me on insta! @nikkihuber

Finished this hike on Saturday, 23FEB2019. The weather and overall conditions were perfect. No rain, breezy, and just the right amount of overcast to keep temperatures cool.

Completed this hike with 6 people in my group. We started at 0730 (from the car), reached the Trailhead @ 0747 and finished the hike @ 1152 (4h 5m Hiking time). We got back to the car @ 1206. The distance from the car to the Trailhead is approximately 0.92 miles. My group did all three peaks. Lots of mud on the lower section of the trail (approximately the 1st & last 1/2 mile of the trail).

Views on this hike are amazing and cannot be beat. The 1st peak is mild in nature and only requires climbing a small section of rock. The backside of Peak 2 is the real challenge for this hike. A long section of rock climbing and ropes (use ropes with caution). The ascent of the 3rd Peak takes a little bit of time. Use caution throughout this ascent.

This hike is a must if you have an opportunity to do it. You want to be physically prepared before you attempt this hike. Bring plenty of water, gloves, and snacks for the trail.

Good luck and enjoy

Beautiful hike but not for the faint of heart! We had 4 people and it took almost 7 hours with the hike from the parking area to the trailhead. You should park as soon as you turn off of the Pali Hwy because you cannot park in the golf course. Bring lots of water and food. Super fun to scale the rocks and pull yourself up the side of the ridge.

Be prepared. You won’t get any view until you get to the top. And it’s not easy and quite dangerous to get to the top. Some rock climbing experience will be a benefit.

Fairly difficult hike, but unparalleled views! Not for the faint of heart, given that there are some free climbing sections (with rope) to get to each of the three peaks. Definitely wear shoes with decent traction in mud, which is think at the beginning and end on an up-and-back. Highly recommend!

Short in distance, but that’s made up for in gain and
technicality at points. I only made it to the summit
of peak 1 due to my partner being unprepared and novice. Amazing windward Oahu views!

Awesome hike. The views are seriously insane once you get through the peaks. LOTS of rock climbing acting the edge of each peak, very sketchy. You don’t have to do all 3, but if you’re in the shape to handle it i would highly suggest it.

One of my top favorites!

Very good workout. Straight rock climbing with some ropes at points. Stopped at the first peak, enough adventure for me. Very muddy!

Excellent. A real challenge. 95% of people do not hike/scramble past the first peak as it takes the longest to reach so the trail is virtually empty if you are brave enough to summit peak 3. Be careful—the drops are steep and rope use is a must. Bring plenty of water, at least two liters on a hot day. The views from peak two are spectacular—one of my best hikes of all time, but caution: at least 2-3 people die per year from slipping and falling. Could be more.

Love this trail. An epic adventure with my friend.

This trail is tough but totally worth it. I would recommend hiking with someone because at times it’s a bit dangerous especially if you’re doing all three peaks. It requires some upper body strength and using ropes to assist some of the climb/descent. Views are unparalleled and indescribable! Would recommend hiking shoes for sure.

this trail is STEEP, so wear shoes with good tread.
a little muddy in places but not too bad.

i only went to the first peak; unfortunately i didn’t have time for all 3. the view from the top is gorgeous; you can see all of Kailua and then some.

there are ropes, but they are old. if you can, try to freeclimb the rocky parts.

overall, if you are in shape, this is a super fun trail and i will definitely be coming back to it.

if anyone is looking for a hiking partner I would love to go this week (21st-24th). please just email me @ hannahmariermt@gmail.com

If there was an extra hard, it would be this Hike. Come ready to rock climb, because there’s a ton. Totally worth it! The view is amazing and the hike is challenging.

One of my all time favourite hikes. From jungle to clay slopes and steep rocky scrambles, this trail has it all. Amazing views to be well deserved after a challenging climb.

By far the best hike I have done so far in Hawaii!!! I will not discourage anyone from doing this hike but please know that there will be some climbing to get to the top of the peaks. I only did two but next time I come back I will finish the trail. It is challenging but worth every step you take.

Super fun, super beautiful hike. I had wanted to do this for years, ever since I was a little kid riding over the Pali. It did not disappoint and I’ve gone back several times. Avoid if too wet because it can get muddy and people have been seriously injured. But otherwise it’s a fun few hours. The views from the peaks are fantastic and (most) of the tricker parts have ropes to help.
