Definitely do it when it's dry. Lots of hills but a great view!
Seems to be a pretty popular trail. Lots of shade and an awesome view of Kaneohe Bay!
Beautiful views at the top. Definitely go when it's dry. Steep at the end with some ropes to help you up. Wear bug spray.
The entrance isn't marked; it's off the highway.
Not too strenuous of a hike.
Beautiful hike throughout and the end is a great view overlooking the bay.
My favorite view on Oahu!
A solid trail if you're out of shape but really looking to push yourself. Steep inclines pay off with the view in the end.
The trail is steep in the beginning and at the end, but it 6 year old didn't have any issues until we started our decent. Took us a little over an hour and a half. Go when there hasn't been much rain. When you go, park at the McDonald's and walk to the start.
Awesome hike. We took our almost 4 year old on this hike and she had so much fun!
We did this trail in the afternoon. We went very slow and it took us 1,5 hours. A lot of people run it. It's family friendly but you still get a sweat going. Nice views. Some mosquitos. I would bring bug spray. I recommend to visit The Valley of temples after.
Good quick afternoon hike. Beginning section can have some very slippery clay/mud that is a hassle on the way down. Great views of Kaneohe Bay. Fun to see the planes take off.
Best way to get there is park near the McDonalds and walk up the highway, keeping the townhouses on your left. The trail will be on your left directly after the guardrail stops.
