Very family oriented, wide, easy, well graded trail. Only thing to watch out for are the junctions to the pillboxes and when its raining, it can get slippery. Some rope sections which could come handy when muddy and slippery.

My 10year old and 8year old came with me and we had a blast! Just challenging enough to be a workout, but not too hard for the kids. Gorgeous, breathtaking views and the bunkers were fun to explore. We loved the artwork on them as well.

This is a nice hike in the North Shore, and would be great for all ages of family. Starting in the wooded area, I've heard there have been boar spotted so be aware, but it then begins to ascend through some more mature woods. A word of caution: this area can be quite muddy and humid after a recent rain, so be prepared. There are some ropes for this reason and some stairs. Eventually there's a picnic table for a quick rest with a lovely view. At the end you will come to the Pillbox with some really rad positive graffiti on the exterior and colorful works inside. Keep going past that, down the hill and you will find the pillbox with the peace sign on the top. Lovely views from both.

Amazing, beautiful, peaceful, steep and perfect. My wife and I did this trail early in the morning, the top will reward you with great views of a perfect beach.

Nice trail. Starts from the parking lot in front of the elementary school. Great panoramic views of North Shore from Waimea Bay to Suset Point.

Awesome hike! Really great leg workout! Make sure to check the weather report from the night before to see if it was raining because it will be muddy which makes it harder. Great hike for dogs as well. Enjoy!!!

Tried using app to follow loop. Trail we were on was in line with beginning of loop but then went right on gps, but loop wanted us to go left. Barb wire in way- no clearly marked trail. Will go again to sort it out!

Good beginners hike with quite a bit of uphill climbing. Very muddy and slippery if it has rained recently but otherwise dry most of the time. Beautiful view of north shore at the top. Bring water and bug spray!

This is a good workout gradually climbs and there are normally alot of people on lots of roots and tons of rock can be very muddy and slippery. on the way up its pretty much trees and rocks not much to look at once you hit the first stop at the table a small view and the humidity drops like crazy and once you hit the pillboxes very nice views.
