A new fav! Loved the inclines to include the 196 stairs at the onset. Added a new rope near the completion point/summit.

Elevation gained 1624ft.
Distance to turn, 2.10 miles

Be advised, several areas are shear like along the ridge with a narrow margin of trail. Also, you'll acquire some friends in the way of burs that stick to your clothing.

Definitely a cardio workout! Beautiful views up top. Wouldn't recommend beginners to do it.

Almost 200 stairsteps lead off this very nice ridge hike. We managed to complete in just over 3 hours and only 1 fall. There is a likely turnaround point about 2/3 of the way. Go to the end before turning around, it’s worth it.

Moderate hike with some nice views. Best to park on Kalihi Street and walk to trailhead. About 2.1 miles out to turnaround area. Looks like the trail goes further through some uluhe, but saved that for next time.

To find this trail, you need to walk all the way up Manaiki Pl. When you reach the end of the street, look for a white mailbox to your right. Take the stairs right next to the mailbox. While it looks like the stairs to someone's home, continue on until the stairs become a trail. You will know you're on the right track when you reach a grafitti- covered concrete water tank. The ridgeline trail end when you reach a breezy cluster of pine trees, despite the GPS map saying you are only halfway. Enjoy!

Cross the street from Nalonieha Street and go past the water pumping station to the end of the street. Take the steep steps into the woods and you are on the trail. We enjoyed the trail: hiking sticks are recommended.

A great hike which is a bit tedious in the beginning but the views are worth it.
