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.

Hiked the trail at 10 AM in the morning. Lots of switchbacks for the first third of the hike but mostly shaded. Midway is a beautiful coniferous forest, the trail becomes carpeted with pine needles. Trail was slightly muddy since it had rained hard the day before. From the picnic table to the summit is quite strenuous but awesome views all the way to the top. Summit was somewhat cloudy but good views east and south. Really enjoy this hike lots of diversity in the plant life as you climb.

Awesome hike

This is a strenuous hike up south facing slopes. As such the heat is a major factor.
