It’s not really a hike, more like a steep five minute walk. I would NOT recommend bringing kids as it’s windy and narrow.

Found it! It didn’t fall out when I stumbled by the mouth of the bay (though it would have). It actually had fallen out an hour before getting in a bunker by the towers. Good thing I traced my complete path.

Well, if you find a Garmin Edge 1000, it’s probably mine. I guess it fell out of my pocket when I fell over by the mouth of Hanama Bay.. see track.

Walking Koko Head is definitely not a lush landscape, and in fact seems more like the Mars Landscape then a piece of paradise. However, the views and interesting lava flow formations are interesting to see. As a bonus for me, I found the Koko Head VOR station and three Fire Control Stations that serviced Diamond Head batteries and a local Battery 155 (155mm mobile gun on a Panama Mount). Unfortunately I did not locate the the remains of the Panama Mount, but but quite possibly it is where to VOR is built since that would be an ideal location. 2 of the 3 Fire Control Stations could be entered, one is locked behind barbed wire in a secured area due to transmission towers.

Continuing walk out to the water is barren but beautiful. Watch your step though, the small pebbles turn into marbles at time. As you near the mouth of Hanauma Bay and begin walking back inland, there is a sign recognizing an old Hawaiian village site and to be respectful. Up from there is the mini valley with the striated lava formation on the hillside.

Do this hike early or on cloudy day since there next to no trees for shade. 2l-3l water is good too.

Beautiful view but not much of a hike

I parked at Hanauma Bay parking lot for free (Only before 7am, after 7am is $1) and made my way to the entrance which is located next to the bus stop off the main road outside of Hanauma Bay. The trail starts off as a paved road but if you wish to make your way to the rock bridge, the trail gets steep and slippery due to loose rocks. Make sure to pack water and sunscreen as you'll be in the sun the whole time. The view at the rock bridge was worth it. Overall a good hike.
