Aloha, great hike. Dog ❤'s this trail. Yellow dot in recorded tracks indicates WW2 era plane crash. Look down the hill hard to see when overgrown. Fairly easy trail, a bit muddy in places and a few downed trees to climb over. The end can be confusing cross the small creek and go up to the left. The end is the hardest and muddiest part so I like to start there, get it over with. Please clean up after yourself and your animals to keep our home beautiful for the future. Enjoy and be safe.

I did this in the rain today so it was pretty muddy, but fun! Good workout with nice views. My dog enjoyed it too. I was confused at the end and thought I missed something but checked the app map and walked up to my car. I missed the plane wreckage.. next time! Pretty sure my dog spotted a wild pig off the trail but I didn't stick around to check.
Great loop trail, will go back to find the plane wreckage.
Me and my son 9 years old went twice.
Shouldn't go in rainy season, it's really muddy.
It took us 2.5 hours for round trip.
Easy to moderate hike depending on your fitness level. I personally like starting from the end of the trail and going the reverse way.
this was waaaay more then 4 miles. Or at least it felt like it. it was a great hike lots of beautiful scenery it is challenging for people who haven't been on a hike or is not in shape. mentally physically spiritually challenging but all and all we finished it.
