Beautiful views of the north and south sides of the island. A challenging hike for novice and intermediate level hikers. A beautiful hike in one of the most fanciest neighborhoods in Hawaii. A popular hike among tourists and locals. The trail moves gently along the ridgeline that extends to the Koolau Summit. The stiff climb to the end requires some skill on a rope.

It was cloudy when I got to the top, so didn't get to see the view :(
The section at the end is more challenging than expected. And my gps said it was closer to 4.5 miles, not 3.9.
Also worth mentioning, you park in a gated community, so be ready to show your id and have all the people in your car sign in.

Great trail with spectacular view. Last 1/4 mile is more hard than moderate. Just as a warning

What a rewarding hike! Takes at least half a day if you stop a lot to enjoy the views and take pics along the way...breathtaking! One of the least muddy of all the trails I've done lately but there are plenty of steps at the top! Totally worth every step!
