This is a great hike, not alot of elevation gain, I explored all around the area taking every little side trail I found so I can't give a specific trail route description. You will mostly be in the forest (surprise!) but there are clearings here and there where you can catch a glimpse of Honolulu and the ocean. I do remember descriptive signage there telling of the types of plant life, one in particular if you find it was called a "mountain-apple" I think, the guy I was with knew and the fruit was edible and tasted...meh.
