Follow H-1 to Moanalua Highway (Route 78). Take the Aiea cutoff to the third traffic light, make a right turn at Aiea Heights Drive and follow it about 3 miles up to the end of the road. Continue on the on-way park road to the trailhead.

My wife and I did this hike today. Great trail, with beautiful views! I would say that this trail is moderate, but closer to easy.

2/11/2018-Group started hiking around 0815 and decided to do the trail backwards so we would end at the parking lot our cars were parked in. Met 33 groups/solo hikers along the way along with at least 5 dogs. Weather was pretty good and ground was mostly dry except for a few areas here and there that were a little soft. Overall it was a great outing and 1.5L of water was more than enough.

Not a bad little hike, not sure about it being moderate. Pretty easy hike for a round trip. Not as many views as I was expecting, but still worth the time. It was a great hike to spend outdoors and enjoy time with loved ones.

This hike feels never ending. There are a lot of beautiful views and the trail does get very narrow. So if you are scared of heights be be warned.

Nice hike, perfect for dogs and Keiki! There’s a plane wreckage there somewhere as well as a trail that leads to a Falls area so this easy trail can get pretty adventurous if you choose.

I love this hike. Not much to it but it's light trafficking and challenging here and there.

Challenging for first-time hikers in Hawaii. Fun, muddy and quite moderate. Ok for kids but not under 10 years old. Stunning view from the top. Walking through was slightly dangerous in some places and quite tight in others. Not traffic but was nice to see other people passing by in both directions. Took little over 2 hours to finish it.

This was a great hike to do on Saturday. Beautiful views, not too sunny, and easy to do if you are physically fit. Pretty muddy, so take it easy around those areas near the edge. Bring water and enjoy they tranquility.

First off I have to mentioned that I am super scared of heights. I went with my 7 and 10 year old kids and we started at the end of the parking lot although I would recommend to start at to lower trail head so you walk downhill towards your car in the end. The trail started nice no mud since it hadn’t rained recently, then along the path there were steep drop offs to on side of the trail which scared me but the path switched between nice and scary. When we got to the point where you can see H3 the path was relatively narrow and the drop off to the left was too much for me and we turned around and walked the same way back. Fazit: The trail is relatively easy to walk even for kids but if you are extremely scared of heights this is not the trail you want to go. The views are pretty but I have seen better views on other hikes.

Great fun! I chose to camp for the night, so I was able to really take my time on the hike. It’s relatively easy, quick, and likely one that will get you hooked on Hawaii’s trails! Most of the trail leads through rainforest, but there are some pretty views, too.
I got rained on towards the end, but there was a water hook up at the campsite and it was easy enough to get washed up.
There are TONS of wild chickens here who seem used to being fed.

Nice view of the highway, but otherwise an uninteresting hike. Easy with 2 or so steep sections.

Nice hike. Not too much traffic and some interesting views. But to be honest: Hawaii have many better hikes. It is nice to calm down and very easy to walk, but you won't find breathtaking views.

This was a great hike for all ages, lots to see. Unfortunately it was pretty wet and slippery so spent more time than I would have liked looking at the ground. Overall it was a lot of fun!

Its quite a nice trail. There are beautiful views and places. But for us, it didn't feel like a real hike. It was very easy (if you are fit and do often hikes) and more like a really long walk than a hike. Don't forget bugspray!
