We started the hike from California Avenue at about 8:45 am and got back out about 6:30 pm. Yeah its a long way to the end of the trail with a great view of Kahana valley and all the way to the ocean. The first part of the journey is quite boring with 2.5 miles on jeep road. The trailhead is well marked and the first portion of it is well cleared. Once past the fence line, the path is quite rough and the ground is full of holes. Be prepared for a muddy trail, windy and wet conditions, and rough terrain. If you can manage all that, you will truly be rewarded with a spectacular view!!!!
