Trail was good has far as the pillbox. After that, it’s not clear where trail goes. We tried to follow the loop on the map but couldn’t find it. Once you get past the pillbox and go inland, there’s a lot of trails, almost none of which are marked. Best view is not from the pillbox, but from a small clearing in an area with tall grass a little before the pillbox.

Great hike. Beautiful trees and great view. Do this hike before sunset so see the beautiful views. Bring a flashlight when walking back.

Mud!!! The trail is an absolute mud pit and the view is not worth the effort,

Looks like a nice trail but it’s been raining for several days and the trail was very muddy and slippery. We turned around because we couldn’t enjoy it.

Rough slog in the mud. As Tom Petty sang, coming down is the hardest part. Slippery and slow. The view was worth the climb; but would be better on a drier day. Loop at top is unmarked. Had to use GPS to navigate. Banzai Pipeline beach is across from the trailhead. Great to have showers. View of sets rolling in from the pillbox was immense

Relatively easy. Great views. Easy to find. Not far from the bus.

Loved it. Nice NorthShore views in the end. Would classify it as easy/moderate. No deep cliffs, so not very dangerous! Would recommend it and it will take about 1 hour (return).

Very slippery if has been raining. Wear hiking shoes.

Fun, easy hike. Saw goats one time

Great family hike. Pretty strenuous going up but it not too far and the views are spectacular when you get there. We went on a Saturday morning and there we a lot of people, but not so many that it detracted from the experience. It’s just a popular hike for families, for exercise or for the military doing PT.

the pillbox with the peace sign is further down past the first one. Just dont turn right into another trail or you will miss it.

Just like in one of the photos where she is pointing the way to the KST ( Koolau Summit Trail). Look for a faint trail among th tall grasses where one of the bridge is.

beautiful scenery. I didn't expect the steps to be so steep but it evened out at points. such a great challenge to take on. next time we will have a carrier for our 2 year old.

The trail is initially very steep, but levels out toward the top. The pillbox we found had a nice view of the beach. I was disappointed that we couldn’t find the other pillbox with the peace sign on it. We came across a sign that said “private property”, so I think the other pillbox may have been back there somewhere.

Even though it is a shorter hike, make sure to bring plenty of water and proper footwear. I saw a few folks struggling up the trail in sandals, long pants, and what looked like not enough water.

Very fun family friendly trail! There were so many great views from each of the pill boxes. The trail isn't too hard, it's a little steep at first but it evens itself out and the views are worth it. It was nice to see the bunkers the soldiers worked in. There was also old parts of buildings that lay up there. All in all very great views of sunset beach and a nice short workout!

Really great trail if you want to hike through jungle a few hours. Some fallen trees made the path more of a challenge but nothing major. The road that the trail joins to is having work done to it. There was a ‘no pedestrian access sign’ but the workmen let us through. They are stabilising the road I think. Looks like they are going to try and make the road operational again.

Don’t expect too many amazing views. You get some good view points to see the rainforest but that’s about it. This trail is more to immerse yourself into the heart of the forest.

A fun hike with a great view! It didn’t take us too long and fortunately it hadn’t rained so it wasn’t as slippery and muddy as some have described. The first part is a lot of uphill and the ropes really help getting up the rocks and slick parts.

Weather was perfect for this hike, ground was nice and dry so no muddy areas. Ropes helped on the rocks going up and down, but over all a nice climb. Views were spectacular! Saw lots of small groups, no dogs though. Highly recommend!

Steep trail, for about 1/4 mile but not slippery great views at the top. Bunker to explore, and Picnic table to rest and take photos at before you reach the top.

Nice views and good calf workout!! Would be a great sunset hike.

great hike! starts off the first half the way with a steep incline but has ropes to help through half of it. wouldn't reccomend going after a rain as it can get very muddy. lots of tree roots to trip over so watch your footing.

first pillbox is legal but second one you walk through private property so be watchful and kind or dont go!

Fun hike when at the North Shore. Nice views and very easy to do when it is dry.

Fun flowy trail for mountain bikers

Not too challenging. Views weren’t as good as I hoped but it was a little cloudy. Pillboxes are interesting.

nice hike in beginning has a nice incline for about 15 min then mellows out

The hike was great. Cover with tress for lot of shade. Muddy but had good steps. Saw a lot of dogs and couples. The first pillbox is right in front of you. The other is off to the right down the mountain side past the do not enter sign. There are a bunch of trails trust me. 2 miles turned into 4 looking for the other pillbox.

Short trail with nice view. A little climb on the way up so you get your workout in. Good for trail running on the trail too.
