The trail begins at the end of Moanalua Valley at Moanalua Valley Park. The trail starts as a road barred by a green gate. The road eventually turns to an unimproved road and later a narrow trail. The trail to the top of the Haiku Stairs (Stairway to Heaven) is also on this trail approximately 2 miles past the trailhead

Loved hiking this trail with my three kids. We did all seven bridges before my four year old got tired and wanted to turn around.

So mostly I use this trail as a connector to a much longer trail but I really love it it. Lush vegetation, beautiful broad leaves and alongside a stream. The ruins are pretty neat off off to the left and the bridges look like they are out of fairy tales. Mostly shaded with lots of fruit trees along the way. Super muddy most the time, as with many trails here and lots of mosquitos. I bring my dog and my kiddo out here a lot , it's beautiful. Be careful when rain moves in this can be a flash flood area as the water rises fast :0

Good for an Easy trail. Muddy after first 2 miles but mostly flat. Good for dogs and kids. Great after the holidays to get back into shape.

A bit muddy but the awesome views made it worth it! It was my first hike ever, not difficult at all.

Nice trail for running, it is very well maintained for about 2 miles. The last mile before the turnaround point is hard to run quickly (downed branches, mud) especially when it is wet. About a half mile before the top you can break off to a different trail that eventually leads to the back end of the stairway to heaven(do not try unless heavily experienced). A beautiful little valley.
