Don't be afraid of this elevation. It was pretty tough for me because I'm afraid of heights. But it is such a satisfying view to see at the end. The wooden slats on the path way get really really steep and it gets a bit frightening to look down but keep your head up and forward until you reach the top. I was sweating hard because of the heat so bring lots of water, good shoes, and a towel. Overall great work out for leg day and stamina. Spectacular view. difficult.

on Koko Crater Trail

We do this hike a couple times a year and we are never let down. The views from the top are some of my favorite on the island, and getting there is quite the work out. Couple things to know its pretty exposed so if its a sunny day your going to get baked. We like to do this hike in the AM while its cooler. Make sure to give the people coming down the right of way. Step to the side. Take your time if you need to. Getting to the top is well worth it. This trail is somewhat close to a gun range. Dont get spooked by the sound. Its in the bottom of another crater. It sounds closer then it really is. There are some bathrooms in the park below the trail head area.

Caution. High Winds. We made an attempt at this trail but had to back off. It was just to damn windy that day. the trail looks great but as soon as we got up the the ridge line we were hit with some pretty big winds. Wife was having trouble staying on her feet. We are going to come back to this one on a much calmer. Anything Koko Head related is for us.

Awesome hike!!

Glorious view. Bring water and take as many breaks as you need!

Sketchy but worth it

My sister was visiting and it was too cloudy to go to the beach, so we decided to try Koko Head (my second time on the hike). I have to say, I enjoyed this hike so much more on a cloudy day than on a sunny one. It was way more pleasant and relaxed. Everyone out there was really nice - encouraging each other, taking photos for one another, etc.

I also felt like there were way more loose boards this time? Maybe it was just me. I would still say that Koko Head is safe enough to hike, but the footing is definitely not even. If you are someone who doesn’t like unsteady footing, be prepared to slide down the rails on your bottom or maybe choose another hike. If you can make it up there the view is amazing!

Tough hike. Took my 22 month old. Gorgeous view. There are a lot of tough spots but so worth it

Nice, quick hike that will give you a good workout and beautiful view!

Super fun! Took a small path to the right and avoided the crowd and the stairs. Wasn’t difficult or life treating at any point. Brought a bottle water and an apple and had plenty of photo opts. Took the stairs down.
