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.

Great for trail running! Its hard to jog past the pavilion unless you're really in shape. Felt like a shorter Wiliwilinui but with the same elevation gain.

Beautiful hike!! Shaded all the way up to the top. Park on the street. Walk through the gate, walk straight on the road and then the dirt trail is on your right. It took us two hours. We jogged down. The top is slippery ,muddy stairs so go slow. Incredible view from the top. Someone was kind enough to tie pink ribbons in trees to help follow the trail. Enjoy!!

This hike was strenuous at times, and there were A LOT of stairs towards the end, but the view at the top made it all worth it! It took my husband and I about 2 hours (at my slow pace) to get to the top and much shorter to get back down!

I love this trail. It took 55 minutes up and 35 minutes run down, but it will pay off on the top of the trail.
