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.

Nice, fairly easy walk through the woods. A few nice views along the way. Dog friendly.

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!

Good, on the easier side, trail. The only reason I rated a 3 was because it was a little boring immediately following Lanikai pillbox hike which had BEAUTIFUL views.

A very easy hike, for all ages, dogs on leashes, trail-running, etc. Basically a walk in the woods, but a really great walk in the woods, with spectacular trees, contour & ridge trails along dramatic (but not scary) cliffs, a few nice views of H3 & adjacent ridges. Steady incline (or decline, depending on direction), but almost always a gentle slope. Figure 2-4 hours, depending on how fast you walk. Gets a little muddy, but not too bad. But bring bug spray.
