Solid trail for families, but prepare to get a little muddy...kids like that anyway.

Hiked it barefoot. Would be great nature trail run with shoes on.

This was a pretty nice hike. We did both trails. I would say they are on the easy side. Moleka was very muddy in spots, especially towards the end. The only issue is that after you finish this trail it ends at the road. That means you either have to turn around and hike back the way you came or walk the road back to the lot in which you parked. The scenery was pretty (especially the trees) with some beautiful Birds of Paradise mixed in. I would do it again because there are other trails mixed in with these.

Nice easy hike. We enjoyed it. My 6 and 3 year old did very good and liked the hike.

There are many trails through this area. take your time and enjoy the bamboo forest and if you explore far enough, you'll make it to the tower. bring plenty of water.

We did the entire loop, 3 miles. Its somewhat easy/moderate and we took our little Yorkie which she help up like a champ. This hike is just beautiful!
We went pretty early, started at 6:45am finished at 9:30, if you go during the day I would suggest bringing bug spray. Thumbs up to this hike!

This was a great little hike! My boyfriend and I weren't finished after doing Diamond Head and just happened upon this little gem. We started at the trailhead right off the road and ran into a local who told us how many options we had when it came to the trails in this area. There are tons! Sadly, since we're here on vacation we won't be able to explore them all. I definitely recommend checking this area out, though. Easy hiking and lots of beautiful, exotic plants that we aren't used to seeing in the PNW. The trail itself was a little muddy, but in no way unwalkable. If we make it back to Oahu next winter, we're going to hike this area again!

Mahalo!

Started from Pu'u Ualakaa State Park up Round Top Drive. I took my inexperienced hikers as a way of introducing them to trail walking and they loved it. Large trees canopy the path in some areas. You'll see bamboos, macadamia nut trees, ginger plants, mountain apples and avocado trees. Trail might be muddy at some areas but for the most part, the trail is easy with low danger.
