Really nice alternative to reach the Haiku stairs if like us you are afraid to hop fences and risk getting fined.

First half of the trail is flat and not that enjoyable, but as soon as it starts going up, the view and trail is amazing. Many ridges, but if you're being careful, everything should be fine.
