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

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.
