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. Parking is in a gated community, so be ready to show your HAWAII ID and have all the people in your car sign in.

Be sure to arrive early if want to do this hike, especially if it is a weekend...there is only 10 passes (cars) at the gate to do the hike at any given time. One of the easier hikes that end at the KST (Koolau Summit Trail). Think there was a couple ropes, but they not needed. Very well maintained path with alot of steps near the top.

Totally awesome hike! Be prepared to climb some steep "stairs" towards the end!

So amazing we have brought friends on the hike several times. Our 2 and 3 year old kids did great - I wouldn't recommend kids though there are a lot if areas to use ropes :) even on a Cloudy day the view is amazing.
