HikingGreat!

Loved this hike! I would recommend it over just doing Mount Katsuu alone. You get multiple peaks and views during this hike. There is a part of the hike when you’re on the road for a while. This road is a straight hill. My recommendation is to do this last so you can walk down it instead of up it! This way, Mt Katsuu is also the last peak you hit (best for last). When you start the hike (Katsuyama Community Center) there will be 2 roads. Take the road on the LEFT to start the hike the way I described. Yes, this way starts with road as well but has less distance on it, and is not such a hill. ALSO going this way you hit 2 signs. The first one has 3 directions. Go RIGHT. The next will have have 2 directions Go LEFT and up! Going right at the second sign has a pretty view if you want to look, but the trail essentially ends that way. I added a pic of the second sign with my review. I recommend not bringing pets!

Just walked this today. This is such a fun trail, not too long, but it is very technical, plenty of sharp rocks, loose rocks, steep inclines, some parts have been quite overgrown and some areas can get very slippery. There are also plenty of large golden orb weaver spiders to watch out for. But the view at the top of the peak is 1000% worth it. Absolutely mind-blowing views of both coasts. The only down point would be near the end of the trail there aren't many markings of which way to go and it can be easy to lose the trail.

Really great trail. Very technical and challenging. Scenic. Decently well marked on the back half with red tape. Recommend walking back down the road you drove up to park where the trail picks up...and take that way first. It’ll make the walk back way easier.

Really nice place with the view! Come well equipped, it is full of mug and slippery. It was hard to find to find the route at some point because it was not perfectly signaled. On average it worth the effort!!

Did this hike twice during the winter. Very challenging when wet, because you need to use all fours for the majority of the hike. When dry, still going to be very hard on your feet due to the sharp rocks. Do not bring kids or pets, and this hike should be classified as “hard,” not moderate.

Very steep and extremely slippery due to the rain. At the peaks are extremely sharp volcanic rock making movement extremely challenging. Great views.

We were a little unprepared but our party of 11, including kids from 5-14 did the loop. Pack plenty of water and snacks if it’s hot and be prepared to use your arms and legs to scramble over the large volcanic boulders. The trail going up from the parking lot is well worn, but the return trip down the West side is overgrown and you could get lost easily. Watch for the blazes and have a blast. It’s a good climb!

A challenging trail that is well worth the effort. Not kid or pet friendly. Beautiful views at multiple peaks.
