Wiliwilinui is about 4.8 miles long and located near Wailupe, Hawaii. The trail is great for hiking and normally takes a half day.

Good workout, but not too difficult. We did it in the afternoon with our dog. It was mostly shaded. One of my favorite hikes. Great view from the top if clear.

Make sure you know the weather and if there is rain anywhere near the trail. If it rains it will make your hike a living hell. I was able to reach the cell phone tower, but had to turn around because it was dangerous, cold and foggy.

Great hike if you want more than the average couple mile pillbox hikes that are all over Oahu. There are some ropes and steps but not entirely necessary if it is dry. Bring plenty of water. The views are great during the hike. It was mostly cloudy at the top (looking towards Kailua) for us but would be beautiful to see the windward side of the island on a clear day. We could see Honolulu behind us as it was still clear on that side of the island.

Really enjoyed this hike and the expansive views! The trail is mostly dirt, so I recommend going when it has not recently rained or it would be extremely difficult to keep your footing. This hike was fairly easy to moderate and you are able to maintain a good pace throughout most of the hike. The stairs are not too bad either! The view is beyond gorgeous! I love that is has mountain views as well as views of the valley and ocean. Definitely recommend this hike!
