Actually stayed on the marked trail and not this one. The map at the top shows 2 trails. Numbered 1 & 2. This hike is number 2 and it looked like the trailhead was down the road where the sign says 4x4 vehicles only.

Awesome views. Be aware that, after a certain point, the All Trails route does not coincide with The Hiker’s Guide to Oahu. If you try to overlap maps, you may get turned around.

Beautiful views the whole way. Great out and back. We saw 2 other people the whole time. Make sure you print your pass/permit before you go. I recommend it for couples, me and my wife did it on our honeymoon.

Road access is controlled by the Air Force and is closed some days. It is required that you print a hiking permit at home and bring it with you (camping.ehawaii.gov). More info at https://camping.ehawaii.gov/camping/all,details,31708.html.

I gave a 5 just for the smell at one point up there lol I believe it is Eucalyptus!! Loved it! Also start from Kealia and once you reach the gate turn right and there's a end point that way! (No end of trail sign there though)With Kealia it's a round trip just under 10 miles! Beast hike! Amazing work out! My go to! Love it!

Got to this section after starting at the Kealia trail, got a little lost and ran into many spider webs but it was silent up there - I passed maybe 2 people. Would definitely recommend this trail to true hikers! It was beautiful
