CALLING ALL CARDIO LOVERS!!!! If you want a serious leg burner, this is the trail for you. Keep a steady pace and you'll be feeling it the whole way up. I loved it. The view wasn't bad either, but I'd do it again just for the workout! :)
Good hike for the boys!
Overall good experience. The real challenge begins once you reach the first staircase. From that point on; focus on your footing. The stairs and available fixed ropes improve stability, but one wrong step could be dangerous in certain areas. Bring footwear suitable for mud.
Favorite hike so far. Spikes helped, hope you like stairs and don't mine a few rope portions. Serious inclines before you get to the stairs and ridge. Amazing views. We completed it in about 2-2.5 hours and we sat up top for quite a good while to cool down. It was nice and dry when we went. I wouldn't try the top if it's super muddy.
best hike I've done so far in Hawaii. worth all work to get to the top once you see the view.
Awesome trail. Ridiculous view s. Moderate. An easy 3 hour hike. Good for night hikes. No later than 5pm to go up. 630 latest before security tells you no.
Great hike! With a great view.
Parking was very easy at the road that acts as the trails head. Check in with the gate guard for the community. The guard will direct you to the parking areas.
Hike was initially super easy and uneventful. Lots of the Willy Willy trees to be seen and we smelled guava at one point. The trailhead, maintained by the sierra club, begins the ascent of the Ridgeline. Several places to stop for awesome views. Making up to the radio station gives a great view of Honolulu and Diamondhead. go a little further and look at the other side of Oahu.
Oh man, there's something about Hawaii and stairs. Then again, the ridge is too narrow for switchbacks so what else can you do?
Gorgeous hike, especially once you get to the ridge and see windward. There's also a path to hike along the ridge from the top and I think you could get a nicer view of Koko if you go to that side. If I get another chance I'll do that.
