This is a paved road which gives access to camp grounds up above. It starts out fairly flat and then gives your quads quite the work out towards the end. Some nice views of the north shore valleys

PPS -- the "Dirt Every Day" episode is available for streaming on Netflix. If you want to see what this trail is really like, it's a really great episode.

PS -- this trail is in actuality a challenging, very eroded 4WD road. There are several YouTube videos showing offroaders struggling with some extremely tough terrain and there's even a "Hawaii" episode of the TV series "Dirt Every Day" that is dedicated to a drive through this trail.
Please don't confuse this with the paved Mokule'ia Access Road or with other trails around the Peacock Flats campsite. This one connects the Keaokala Access Road (also known as the Keaokala Firebreak Road) to a right-of-way that connects Farrington Hwy to one of the palis just east of Dillingham Airport.
Again, this is a monster of a 4WD road (don't even think about doing it with one vehicle) and a long, but great day hike.

It is a paved road up the mountain. Most over shadowed by trees. Not terribly interesting.

Started from the dillingham side and worked our way up the steep 3 mile incline to Peacock flats. The hike is on a hard paved road the whole way up and does have a few nice views of the North Shore. Bring lots of water and wear comfortable clothing.

Thank you to whomever at Alltrails updated this page with the correct map.

This is an obscure trail that is on few maps, but is nonetheless well worth exploring. I've only made it halfway so far, but hope to do the entire trail soon. What I've seen is in very good shape and offers many spectacular and unusual views of the North Shore between the Mokule'ia and Kealia trails.

If you start from the Peacock Flats campsite, proceed west to the intersection with the coincident Kuaokala Access Road. Follow the KAR about 1.5-1.7 miles, then turn right, leaving the KAR at a T intersection marked only by a small 4WD sign (a profile of a jeep). From this point, you'll follow a winding, challenging red-dirt 4WD road that crosses multiple ridges around Ke'eke'eke down to a field behind Dillingham Airport and Paradise Skydiving. From there it's about a mile walk back to Farrington Highway.
This road is do-able by mountain bike & 4WD, but would be extremely difficult, if not dangerous, if not perfectly dry.
I'll update this review with a description of the 2-3.5 mile span when we complete the entire trail. FWIW, that part is described as very tough going in the few sources I've found.

Google will bring you to a Trailhead for a beach but not the trail. Go past Dillingham and several beaches.

Excellent trail, don't do what I did, carrying 46 lbs going up to Peacocks Flat for originally 2-night camping. But on the way down, with 32 lbs was wonderful. Next time, I'll go with a small backpack and do a long day hike starting with this trail.

I would say this trail is moderate. It's all paved, the incline is pretty intense after the first part. Great cardio and glutes workout. There is no shade, it's very hot, go early!

Wanted to get out of the house, so I grabbed my dog and chose this trail. Easy to find. Saw some peacocks and cows along the way. Mostly exposed trail, so bring water on a hot day. Starts off relatively flat then bam! A steady incline from about the 3/4 mile point onward. Overall nice hike

Se only did the 3miles trail. It is a forest hike, really beautiful, full of nature to breathe. But is only that. It ends up in a road where a lot of people walks there dogs. Easy to climb down, more challenging to climb back up. Is a good option for a 2hr easy hike, if you like forest. Bring mosquito repelent, is full of it.

Long trail good view of the ocean. We saw a few whales and a great view of a valley at the end

Awesome view, the elevation gain is crazy, not much to see up top along the trail, once on top trail turns into a well used dirt road.

Although we had been to Peacock Flats a number of times, we had not done the trail to 3 Corners. This time we took the 4WD road from the Kaena Air Force Tracking Station to Peacock Flats with intent on traversing Mokuleia Trail to Pahole Shelter to traverse along the Makua East Rim to 3 corners. The target location is called 3 corners because it is there that the three valley's of Makaha, Makua and Mokuleia converge. It is also the place where Ohikilolo Ridge joins the Waianae Summit Trail.
The morning was generally clear with a light sprinkling of rain. We had clear views of Makua, Ohikilolo and Mokuleia. We also had the opportunity to see the top of Kaala before the clouds came in.

Unfortunately, by the time we made it to 3 Corners - we could barely see Makaha, and Makua was already socked in. No clear view of the three valleys this time(!) The east rim of Makua Valley is not for the feint hearted. It is a major rollercoaster, with sheer drops and steep inclines. It was also very overgrown. Be prepared with rain gear, gloves and micro-spikes.
The 4WD was about slightly over 8 miles, while the hike was about 3 miles. So a return hike of about 5-6 miles, and a 4WD drive of about 16 miles. Since it was raining today, the drive back was also slick. All in all, it was a good full day with a nice variety of 4-wheeling and hiking.

We will definitely do this many times in the future and hopefully to connect to Ohikilolo ridge or to Mt. Kaala!

This was a decent hike. The assent is fair, at around mile 2.5 you really start to feel it in your legs and glutes. We went up to mile 3, the tree at the marker is decorated for Christmas, that was unexpected. A decent 6 mile round trip. The views are decent, next time well go round trip for the full hike.

Parked across the street from the coconut grove, then walked thru the access gate. The trail is black top and starts out flat for the first mile. We only went to the 3 mile marker and was quite steep from mile 2 to mile 3. Looking forward to going the full route.
