Completely paved trail. Easy trail about 2.4 mi round trip. The whole way up has beautiful views which are great for pictures. You can also go off the trail a little bit to get more pictures but be careful! Lots of people walking with their kids and pups. Will be back and would love to show when family visits!
Easy paved path leading up to the lookout. There are couple resting and lookout point on your way to the top which are nice. On the way up there's a little path down to a tide pool, but the winds were crazy when I was there so no one was risking their lives for that.
We noticed some pillboxes to the left of the lookout and decided to venture up, which was a moderate hike. The view of Makapu'u from there was breathtaking. Definitely climb to the pillboxes, there are two of them.
