HikingGreat!

Beautiful hike through the jungle. There are all sorts of cool plants and trees including a bamboo section. There are lots of roots and rocks covering the trail so it’s definitely a bumpy one. After you climb the switchbacks at the end you come to a clearing with beautiful views of lush green mountains and ocean.

This is definitely on the harder side — thé last half is switchbacks straight up and then some. You’re hiking through the jungle and bamboo forests to get to a beautiful view up top

We went on Thursday 8/13/2020. If you come now be mindful the trail is a bit muddy but mostly just at the top. There are also 2 small streams and some wet areas you need to walk over. Rocky and a lot of tree roots also. We would do it again just be aware of the potential challenges and be sure to where good hiking shoes. Very nice vistas of the north side of the island and you can also see the southern part of the island from the end of the trail lookout.

A beautiful hike with a trail that gets improved year after year and a well maintained trail mostly shaded. It is well well marked, yet can be muddy.

March 1, 2020. Did this hike - at least a good portion on it - on a rainy day, from heavy rain to light rain the entire time, with occasional no rain. Perfectly doable with no guide, as long as you have shoes you don’t mind getting soaked with some decent grip, and a decent rain poncho (or don’t mind getting soaked). Would rate it as moderate to easy. We started from the mount Belvedere lookout, and as you are facing the mountain the trail head is clear from the parking lot and to your right. The initial trail is pebble path. After that, the Trail is almost all marked with guidestones on the side. After just a bit there will be a proper post sign that says “coco trois” or something like that, where you cut left. Can’t miss A lovely waterfall was running about 1/3rd of the way into the trail, and it is marked “cascade” and is a small side diversion . You can get into the water fall. Then back out to the trail and continue on the trail which is sloping slightly downward. There are a few places where you just have to pick up the trail after an open clearing or two - some of which were shallow ponds of water in a clearing - by finding where the guidestones pick up. Not hard. Very few proper trail markers - just very small signs nailed to a tree here and there, but you really can’t get lost as it is just too thick to go too far off trail. Several pleasant streams to cross which were rushing but never more than ankle or knee deep even with stronger rains, so moderate caution is advised but definitely easy to do. Path was slick and muddy, but give into the mud and you are fine. Well worth it, and don’t be deterred by a rainy day. Not the coco trail, but You can also go left when facing the mountain from Belvedere lot for a shortish trail down to a nice rushing stream. No review of the lookout because we turned back prior to getting that high. Not for any particular reason, but we didn’t know how much further and had hiked a fair bit.

Randonnée accessible depuis Vai'Anae. Nous avons décidé d'opter pour cette itinéraire. Il y a peu de monde même en pleine saison touristique. Cependant, le chemin n'est pas balisé (surtout au niveau de la très belle maison de la nature) mais les habitants nous indiquent le bon itinéraire et nous donnent de précieuses informations : Ne surtout pas emprunter les pont en bois, ils menacent de s'effondrer ! Heureusement, il est tout aussi facile de passer à côté. La forêt est magnifique et son ombre agréable. Vos efforts seront récompensés par le superbe panorama au col.

Good hike with nice views at the top. Muddy ascent can be challenging. I’d recommend doing the end as a loop to add some variance and 2km.

Very solid trail and a good hike. Would rate it as "easy" for the majority of the hike with a nice little "moderate" climb at the end. The trail itself seemed very well marked and easy to follow. Beware overhead branches - the trail is very rooty and muddy and you may find yourself running into a tree branch if you are looking at your footing too much. There is one section near the top where the mountain seems to have washed out underneath the trail. You can still navigate across the roots but it isn't solid ground. Hopefully some trail maintenance in the near future will fix this. The view at the top is great - much more peaceful than the overcrowded photo area at the trailhead.

Wow!! It was a great one. Bring water! Although it’s mainly shaded it was very warm and humid. Very muddy after it rains!! Beautiful trees, crossed a couple of streams, and the terrain was up and down until the last 30 min or so - then it was challenging switchbacks all the way up!! The view is worth it. Watch carefully for trail markers...there aren’t a lot!!

Great trail to see the island, particularly if it hasn’t rained in a couple of days. Need to watch steps to avoid ankle sprains, but enjoyable hike

Took us a bit less than 3 hours including some time for pictures at the top. The hike itself is covered, but the views once you get to the top are amazing!

Great hike with excellent views of the bays. Muddy in areas, but worth the trek.

Trail was very muddy in places, but not impassable. Bring water and bug spray. The views at the top are beautiful.

First to Review

Trail was beautiful but muddy. We are fairly novice hikers but in good shape and we found the trail a bit difficult in spots.
