The trail was really good enjoyed hiking it a lot with some friends. Our first time to hike the trail and had a good time choosing from choosing many directions to hike from. Hike offers well kept trails and offers a great destination for mountain bikers which we ran to multiple times with many down hill mounds and fun little drops. Enjoyed the fact you can continue on to Ehukai Pillbox as well. Good trail!
This trail is not that bad. Pretty cool views, some good uphills too. The only problem with this map are the two spots that overlap each other. They got us pretty lost because they are not accurate. Hike down the "paved" trail until you see the second, yellow warning gate. Turn left and follow the old abandoned highway until you get to another warning fence. Just before it there will be a washed out part of the highway on the right and a steep trail up covered in red mud with another warning sign- take it. It may have a lot of debris but it clears up just over the hill. Follow that trail until you see a trail head for Kaunala trail on your left(there will be a tan tree growing out over the dropoff on your right). Follow this trail for quite some time and it will take you back to that original "paved" road. Safe travels!
This was a great quick hike up to a beautiful view. I wouldn't recommend doing it after heavy rain because it gets slippery. Once you're at the top there are more connecting trails if you wanted to continue, or you can just trek back down. At the top there are 2 different look out points (pillboxes).
