I would consider this trail difficult after it rains because of how slippery it is. The beginning is a little steep but then the grade becomes manageable for the remainder of the trail. You end of at the top of the ridge overlooking Pago Pago harbor and Rainmaker Mountain. There were a few coconut crabs along the trail and sensitive plants that have leaves that quickly close if you touch them. The views were amazing from the top. There is a small cover building that allows you to take a break from the sun/rain.

Drove past the house to what was probably not a pull-out for cars. Rocky walk to a few informational signs put up by the park. Short walk to the rocky beach afterwards. Better views looking back while on the road.

Short but strenuous trail. The beginning is a moderate switchback up the hill then ladders and ropes going down the back side. The trail leads to a secluded, rocky beach that has good bird viewing and scenery. Could have been in the jurassic era. The climb back up the ladders was more difficult than I thought it would be; added an extra 15mins than what I had planned. Well worth it though.

Short walk to the water’s edge where waves crash hard against the shoreline. No problems with dogs on the way in and a few barked as we left. Just stay off their property and motion like you are picking up a rock to throw at them and they will keep their distance.
