Great trail for the family to take a Sunday stroll. It's a little steep and muddy at times but overall a pretty nice walk. Great view at the top pill boxes. Park at the shopping center down the road by the McDonald's and enjoy.

Great workout esp. if you're babywearing. The view at the top is nice but wasn't blowing anyone away. Watch out for bee hives.

I do this trail every day off I get from work. I've ran up it in 28 mins and ran down in 11. I've also walked at a slower pace and it's taken me 50 minutes up and 30 minutes down. It's steep and can be tough for those who don't hike as much. Although it may be a mile the ups and downs make it feel a little longer. There are also a few parts where it's so steep that there is rope to help guide you up. Worst part is in the beginning though. if it rained that day it gets super slippery. That being said, the view is stunning all times of the day. Even night time when the moon is out it can be breath taking. Worth the trip to the top for sure. There are also a few other little lookouts along the way.

Hour and a half hike at an easy pace. Decent incline with a great view of the bay. Clear trail with only a few low branches towards the end. Closer to 3 miles from McDonald's parking.

Easy hike that may be very muddy. Works it way up to Fire Control Stations overlooking Koneohe Bay. can go back down the way you came, or take alternate trail that comes out behind condo and exits onto streets to walk back to McDonalds.
