This is a loop trail that takes you through paper bark forest and other invasive plants (e.g. uluhe, etc). The trail is a bit of an up and down jaunt with the final reward being a dip in the stream. Be careful if it is raining as the stream can swell.

It's a very pretty trail! it's marked fairly well, but you have to keep an eye out for the markers. like other comments said take Calforina Ave. park along the street.. once you walk along the water tower by the paper trees, make a left and go down.. if you go right, it's along military training grounds.. after about a 3/4th mile or so there will be a tree with pink ties at a 4 way cross, take the trail right going up to continue along and up the ridge where it opens up so beautifully and gets more airy. we took our 5 year daughter and Tula our son we turned around about 1.5 miles into it, but could see where you go down and cross the stream . very pretty trail!! If you're use to hiking this trail is great, it can be a little changelling at times crossing under trees and ridge lines. don't really recommend toddlers, or just plan not to complete it all or take a while..

I love the fact that no one was on the trail that day. Beautiful.

One of the better hikes I have done in Hawaii so far. I did the entire loop for the first time today and have done the southern half out and back before. The initial/final hill and the two big dips through the valley are some tough trudging but other than that the trail was in great shape with only a couple slightly muddy spots. The ridge tops offered a great breeze both times I was hiking here and I have only seen two people not in my party after about 6 total hours on this trail. I hear the tubing is great (and the trail more populace) when the water level is up. When it is down the stream crossing is a great place to sit in the shade, have a snack, and enjoy the solitude that is so rare in Hawaii.
