A beautiful walk through bamboo and forest. I was able to find the multiple geocache hidden here. I didn’t make is all the way to the far end since the geocache was towards the middle of the hike. Will definitely come back to explore.

One of my favorite routes to run! We currently have it marked with purple arrow painted rocks (from the Explore Okinawa free group on Facebook) but it’s fairly manageable to find, even if someone swipes a rock! Enjoy the views !
Be sure to take the extra set of stairs closer to Onno no Eki market to get to see more ruins, an amazing view, and a hidden cave!
Kids and dogs can conquer this hike even though the full route is around 4 miles, just pack plenty of water for the Okinawa heat!

Great trail... great view at the observatory. There are a few narrow spots and a few places where the forest is overgrown a little. We took an 8 year old, a 5 year old and a 2 year old; they all did fine.
