great hike overall. close to Honolulu, moderately challenging (lots of stairs), decently maintained trail, and great views along the way and at the summit. to get to the trailhead you need to get a pass from the gate which requires a valid ID from the driver and caps the number of people on the trail. can get a little slick when it rains. at a decent pace around 2 hours but closer to 3-4 if you need to take the stairs slowly or long breaks
