This trail is a moderate hike. (It would be a hard walk.). About 2 hours 45 minutes to complete, out and back. Started at 7 AM, with the ridge providing shade for the first 30 minutes or so. Sun was to my back during most of the return trip. Beautiful water views throughout and island/water views at the end.

Good half-day hike relatively close to Kaanapali resorts. I'd rate it moderate-to-hard rather than hard.

This trail is not for the faint of heart. Uphill the whole way, and that's not the worst..downhill back home is murder on your feet and knees. It is like waking a dry riverbed, lots of boulders and rocks. Wear sunscreen, there is no shade...

Maybe we're spoiled... it wasn't a bad hike we just expected a little more vantage points. 3.5/5

Open exposure. No trees. Definitely recommend a start in the morning as it is VERY hot. Awesome home. Lots of different sized rocks and challenges along the way. Steep incline as well. About a 3 hour round trip.

Rocky. Steep. Great views! See tiny whales down in water if you are lucky during rest stops, otherwise you are watching trail to decide best path. Hike early, little to no shade & bring plenty of H2O. Started at West entrance where entry signage was poor. No gate.

A bucket list hike & what a view! Trail is steep starting out, but not as bad as anticipated. Others advice to start inland was much appreciated, as the wind was to my back. Took a little over 3 hours with time to take pics and take in the views. Only mistake was parking at the turnout on the highway. No signage at all, but there is a parking lot 1/4 mile in, but close the gate behind you.

A very hard trail but worth the effort. Breathtaking views and a real sense of accomplishment when you finish. A must for all serious hikers.

Bring snacks, plenty of water and walking sticks!
