This trail that rises almost 1800 feet before peaking on the spine of the Ko`olau Ridge. It's a great hike and a tough run, for it is steep, but it is very run-able and offers a great reward in the form of spectacular views. The locals say that you're suppose to run to the top, come back down to the picnic table, and then run back to the top again.

Pretty easy switchback style hike. Great views up top. Erosion stairs last quarter mile or so were moderately difficult. Took me about 2.5 hours round trip including pictures at the top.

One of our favourite hikes so far! Breathtaking scenery, good signage and great trail conditions. Moderate to strenuous hike, specially as you get closer to the top. It took us 2 hours at at moderate pace. Really rewarding and pleasant Hawaiian experience. Highly recommended.

The first mile and a half looks like the same views you would encounter in other hikes in Oahu. Not too exciting. The payoff are the views once you reach the top. It makes the hike worth it. The steps are toward the summit. My group went when it was dry. This hike would be more challenging if it recently rained making the steps muddy and slippery.
