The hike took us 1:45 to reach the summit, and another 1:45 to descend. The hike begins in a gated community with beautiful houses - show your Hawaii drivers license to the guard and he will issue you a hiking permit for the day.

Overall, the hike is pretty comparable to Kuliiuou and Wililinui. The hardest part is the final ascent to the end. Definitely wear sturdy hiking boots, as the footing is uneven, rocky, and at times slick and muddy. Great views!
