This trail continues on the Kaiwa Ridge from the Pill Boxes with Bellows Beach Park on one side and Keolu Hills neighborhood on the other, ending at the top of Hele Street in Enchanted Lake. It has been cleared and marked with orange trail markers and is a beautiful extension of the classic pill box hike.

Very decent hike. As per others who have commented on it, it is far better to start on the other end as it is more well defined. If you do this the gate is near the private community on the right. It is muddy/slippery so be prepared. look for the trail markers to define the trail. however, we recommend you take the road back to where you parked because if the trail is wet you will slip. Also the trail head (where all trails takes you) is right behind someone's house which is is not in the aloha spirit to be traversing

Great views. Little shade and tall grass. Great one for the dog. HINT: both end of trail are on the street so you can start either end and return via street if you'd rather not do out and back. I suggest starting from opposite end of where the map suggests, it is marked much better and you would get to the peak faster if you want a shorter hike and still get best view!! There Usa military compound at the south end that scared us for a moment with machine gunn fire but after we realized what it was it was a cool bonus!

Good short hike, it rained before so it was super slippery but the views were amazing!
