Go early. No shade and full exposure so getting there at sunrise is key. Such a beautiful way to see the light come up. Epic views and interesting volcanic rock

Great views. Brown Red blue color scenery. Turbines in the end. Good for watching sunsets if you are okay with night hiking. We managed pretty well with phone lights

It was extremely windy (makes sense, given the wind turbines), but it felt a bit unsafe at times. The views at the top were not that impressive. If your goal is a challenging hike you will enjoy this. If your goal is gorgeous views, you only need to the first half mile, and the rest of the hike is not worth it.

Great workout. Try starting the hike earlier in the day otherwise the heat would be the biggest challenge and not the hike itself. The heat in my case made me grateful for the bits of cloud cover that I’d get occasionally. Carry 2-3 liters of water per person.

Good trail with good views. No shade! I recommend doing this hike at night during a full moon. Be careful of heat.

Great hike if you’re looking for a challenge. Start early in the morning to beat the heat and blazing sun. Bring lots of water!

Great views! Pretty strenuous, and hot. We didn’t complete the trail, just too hot for us. Worth trying.

We did the west trailhead to center walk and back. As a 65 year old man with some health issues I found it accessible and really enjoyable. Great views. My partner is a fit 60 year old woman. The steep parts require rock climbing which is slow and easy. The grade otherwise is moderate with many flat areas. Going down was challenging on the knees but not too difficult. I found the app sent me through Google to the wrong place. The west end starts between mile 11 and 11.3 on the 30 near or just past the tunnel depending on your direction with parking in a treed area across from the ocean. Highly recommended.

Not a big fan of this one mostly because it was all rocks. Very slow hike. Good views though. It was also extremely windy that I felt uncomfortable.

Off trailRocky

this trail is hard based on the type of trail. Elevation only considered it would be moderate. The trail is very rocky my daughter and I definitely felt like a Billy goat on this trail. be sure you wear really good hiking shoes. i still twisted my ankle coming down. but if you have the time and lots of water it is one of the most beautiful hikes you will ever do! we took one entry to the other side too see it all and ubered back to our car

Really liked this trail! Challenging and rocky but quite scenic. Make sure you look for the trail when first leaving the trail head, it’s easy to follow the fire/service road by mistake. There is a yellow arrow on the pavement directing you to the trail.
