Very pretty trail, clearly doesn't get a lot of traffic judging by how overgrown it is. Wear long pants! There's a pretty significant slide at around roughly 3 miles in, which there are a few photos of on this page. The ground was very crumbly and slippery and the webbing there did not look like it would do a lot for you if you were to fall, so that was where we called it a day. It was still a nice hike even without making out to the open ridge.

We did the ridge when we were there doing the waterfalls. Nice ridge, easy to follow.

Great hiking/walking. Like others we intended to do the waterfall loop but managed to wind up on the ridge trail. Still a great experience just took longer than intended.

This track is not complete. It’s an 11 mile out and back from the Aiea Loop Trail to the KST (Ko’olau Summit Trail).

Overall, not bad for an 11 miler. I caught it on a dry day. There was mud, but not too many crazy puddles. I managed to complete it in about 5.5 hours. Views at the summit at the KST are awesome, getting a great perspective of both sides of the island.

Accidentally ended up on the ridge trail when we intended to do a falls trail, which turned a four mile loop into an eleven mile out and back.

Not a bad hike, but very damp. Narrow trenches full of ankle deep mud for about three miles of the hike. Has a handful of ropes to assist, all in great condition.

Three adults finished in six hours and drank 3L of water.
