Good family work out. Fantastic views.

A gorgeous hike that starts in a tree covered forest, and ends with a scenic view overlooking the mountains. Had some steep climbs, but was a good workout and well worth the trek.

Gorgeous views the whole way up. Pretty steep climb, but the trail itself isn't particularly challenging - if you're in reasonably good shape you should be fine.

Bring plenty of water. Lots of vertical switch backs.

Somewhere between moderate and hard. But definitely well worth it. Gorgeous views and a tough workout.

We had dry conditions which helped
The trail is steep but not difficult. You will get a good workou!

Rated moderate because it's short, but the steepness is not for the faint of heart. Be sure to wear shoes with grippy soles!

Awesome hike!

Awesome hike with Beautiful scenery! Highly recommend it! But rained at the top and was very slippery on the way down. Hiking poles would be helpful.

Was a great hike but raining and really slippery so couldn’t see anything at the top .. take a walking stick ! Imagine this would be completely different when it’s clear!

Great views. Muddy and slick.

Great trail, only difficulty it can be slippery. Not technically challenging at all. If you get up there and the clouds have covered your view, just wait about 15 or 20 minutes and they should clear out.

Nice, yet moderately busy trail with excellent viewpoints and well maintained sections interspersed with some slick areas. Do early in day as routine clouds show up early on top.

Great climb! It’s straight up hill with only a few level spots! The views are spectacular and would highly recommend not missing out in this hike!

Very pretty hike with a healthy climb. Got there at 8:30 and there were just a few cars, not over crowded. The drive in is beautiful as well. When clouded over, it feels nice and cool, but you won’t get the view from the very top. Nice little platform at top for 360 views and big enough to hang out and have a snack or a lunch. If it rains, I wouldn’t want to be in gym shoes. Bring water, good shoes, a snack and enjoy! Took us two hours with breaks. We saw plenty of people of all ages and fitness levels doing this.

Fantastic views at the top. Went during the rainy season and trail was complete mud. Factor that in on your decision or ability. Good workout. Great views of the gorges, valleys, mountains and oceans. Really recommend.

Great hike with spectacular views! If you’re looking for the views, you can stop after the first mile because the last mile is very steep with just a view of the other side of the ridge for a different valley, not as great as the first stopping point. If this is for a workout going all the way to the top is strenuous for that last mile. Definitely beautiful hike, you can see a waterfall from the distance and the valley is simply breathtaking. As expected, incredibly hot and hard to find shade so be prepared!

This trail is closed, along with all the other trails in Iao Valley State Park. Tried to hike it earlier today and it was blocked off. The park website doesn’t say anything about these trails being closed.

loved it but keep an eye out for the entrance, we missed it and Google maps took us an hour out of the way through white knuckle turns. pretty nice views and a decently strenuous hike.

Moderate difficulty, has some very steep areas and could definitely see where some slippery areas would be. Thankfully trails were mostly dry for us. Incredibly gorgeous views. Overall an amazing hike.
