Eden Hansing, there is no Air Force gate. You don't need a hiking permit. I believe the one you are talking about is the Satellite Tracking Station at Kaena Point. Those who gave 1 star for this track,you were most like on the wrong one.

The flat part of the path it’s very easy but when you start climbing the mountain it gets rough near the top and you end up doing a lot of rock scaling . we did not get to the top as we were worried about coming down and slipping, so we got 3/4 up.

One part of the hike is straight up a rock wall. But I haven't climbed anything before and got up it..

The view is amazing and it’s definitely a climb. I wouldn’t bring younger kids because the trial does involve rock climbing. There’s quite a bit of trash and homeless at the bottom. The homeless people didn’t bother us at all though.

Not as dog friendly as I expected. A few homeless people kinda politely asked us to not be there with our kids.

Wouldn't recommend.

Not an easy hike. The entrance is not marked. Some pretty views. Mostly rocky steep steps with sand with occasional views of three ocean. Other people ascended to the top but that is not part of this trail. It is a moderate trail, not easy.

This trail is closed by the Air Force and you won't even be able to get to the trail unless you fill out the hiking permit and get it signed before you come. From the armed gate you're about 2.6 mi away from the trail so you can't even try to walk in. I'm turning around now and going south to the Kaneana Point state park

It is a very beautiful place. Worth visiting. Beautiful beach.

Strenuous. Steep , it's an entire uphill climb. The rocks are crumbly and expect rock climbing on cliff sides. Lots of scrambling. We had a rope snap and almost lost a friend so please don't trust the ropes! Amazing views. Take caution but enjoy the challenge. Took us 2 1/2 hours to summit.

Short and sweet hike little hike. That little rock is known as Mauna Lahilahi and is definitely worth a climb. It's probably the only hike on this island that includes rock climbing but can be considered an easy hike. Once you summit, you are treated with amazing views of the Waianae Range and the western coast.

Super muddy made worse by the rain. There's a horse tour place near the entrance that looked fun. Sweet ridge hike though. The cloud we were hiking in opened up for a bit on the way down and the valleys adjacent to the ridge are gorgeous.

Beautiful views, unfortunately by the base there is a lot of garbage from homeless and tourists.

Getting to the summit is a lot of fun, some areas are basically rock-climbing, depending on the route you take. Can be a bit rough on the hands, given it is volcanic rock.

Trail start/end on some farm land with cows, bulls and horses. Trail is steep and slippery if wet. View just amazing, probably one of the best trails I hiked on Hawaii.

If you are up to the challenge, this ridge hike is strenuous and steep. There are a number of drop offs and rock climbs. Be weary of the crumbly rocks as these can break off pretty easily; so always test before putting your full weight. We also encountered a lot of wild life as this is a public hunting area as well. Lots of goats and pheasants; not to mention a number of cows too. Watch out and stay clear of the bulls. At the top of the ridge we were rewarded by expansive views of Ohikilolo, Makaha, Mount Ka'ala and view of the ocean to Ko'olina and Kaena. This is one, I would definitely do again.

Hiked this with another family, between us we had 5 kids who hiked the whole way and two 1 year olds who were carried most of the way. The rock climbing was a bit tricky at parts but definitely doable, my 3 year old rarely needed a helping hand and was actually more fearful of the crashing waves than the rock climbing. We started by heading to the left when approaching, climbing up the side a bit and then descending down and around to the other side. This hike should be a loop! It was awesome, great views. There were a couple homeless camps set up so be respectful as you traverse through and HAVE FUN!
