Honolulu, Hawaii Map

beautiful long walk. 95% in the shadow, good and dry path, plenty of roots but overall easy. the view from the top worth the walk. we did in 4 hours with our 2 young children.

Wow. Just wow. Worth every single step (lunge).

Lots of people around today, but trail is better marked with more pink flags tagging the route. Waterfall at the end was still awesome!

Very pretty at the top, and easy enough to do in a short amount of time. It is a VERY crowded hike, as many use it to trail run and work out. Go on a weekday if you can, and avoid if crowds aren't your thing.

Be careful and respectful of how you go about this hike, as (very clearly if you read the other "reviews") the locals (for good reason) hate it when you trudge through their neighborhood. There are nails and booby traps on their fences and in their yards, and the police do patrol the area, including the base of the stairs. If you manage to find a way around though, the stairway is beautiful and very worth doing.

The view was great. The trail is long, so expect to spend at least half day.

Did the hike today starting around 5:30 finished at 7:30. A cop car was stationed at the gate so we used the drainage ditch to get in. See previous comment to find it. Went through the bamboo forest dodging the guard on the way up and passed him on the way down. Exited back through the ditch around 10. No troll toll but loads of pictures and smiles. Oh and on a final note, you can also enter through lolli street, they seem to like hikers. Ring any door if you need a bathroom break before you start since there are no facilities on the trail. Good luck!
