One of the best finds. Trail has 360 degree view of the Windward area. You can see Kaneohe Bay, Marine Base, Kailua, Kaneohe and the Koolaus. Very beautiful.

Great trail!! We hiked it as a family. It’s the rainy season and there’s lots of dirt and roots that can be slippery, but if you wear appropriate footwear with traction and you’ll be great!

Loved this little hike. Started around 4:30pm and hiked up to the ridge but only about halfway, which was enough for a bit of a workout and great views! We followed the friendship garden loop trails and saw lots of flora and fauna (and bugs). After the overlook benches, there are plenty of ropes and well-placed, sturdy roots to grab onto during the 10min-ish ascent to the ridge. The ridge gets pretty overgrown with tall grass at eye level, so wear longer clothes (also protects from the mosquitos). Didn’t do the whole ridge trail but still had amazing views and we were down before it was dark. No mud, even after some drizzle today!

Great hike! It reminded me of hiking ridge trails but not nearly as hard and a lot less dangerous. Beautiful views!

2/7/2021-Started around 0730 and encountered 11 people. Weather was good; trail is pretty short but there’s still a nice lookout point with a bench.

FishingGreat!

Beautiful and easy trail with historical significance. Lots of interesting marked and unmarked flora to view, as well as some views of Kaneohe Bay. There are more trails to explore in the garden portion than what is in the Alltrails recording and there is a trail map in a covered area just past the start of the hike to assist. I did this along with the Oneawa hills trail and my recording is associated with that hike. Parking: There are 2 spots directly in front of the trailhead and two others a little further down the road near the corner. Other than that look for a side street at the bottom of the hill and get an extra work out walking up. Make sure your car is completely off the road or it could be ticketed.

Mothers were a few forks I was confused about but if you keep going up it’s no problem. At the very end it is quite steep but there are ropes to help

Nice trail, very suitable for my 5 and 6 year olds. Not difficult and just a tiny bit muddy in some places (we are in the rainy season and even got rained on during the hike, but trail was still not too muddy). There is limited parking available, 4 spots as described at the start of the trail, 2 of them right in front of the trail. Nice lookout at the top with a bench. Thanks to the volunteers who maintain this!

As always this trail is amazing and well maintained. The community who services this needs to receive great praise. This is a beautiful trail and easy for dogs and kids as well as adults. This was my first trail on island with my dog more than 1.5 years ago and still is. The shade, the views, the subtle architecture makes this trail amazing. Just know there is no real parking here except for two spaces at the start of the trail. Please be respectful to the local residents. Mahalo.

Nice little loop hike through some forest and jungle. Very easy, could bring kids or dogs on it and super obvious the whole way, no fear of getting lost on this one. This hike doesn’t really feel like a work out, but for new hikers or folks just looking to take a little stroll this is absolutely perfect. Love the neighborhood maintains this one!
