Easy! However we didn't do the rim because of high winds. If you don't like high places pick another hike. My wife cried a little out of fear but I was able to talk her up the falls. Also get ice spikes so you dont fall off the rim.

Easy hike. Beautiful views

Straight trail all the way up on the old rail track. Little areas on it where you can stop and catch your breath on the way up. Great view on the top! A little bit harder going down since steps can be a bit wide.

Easy hike up to the ridge line. But once you reach the ridge line it is muddy and narrow hiking. Be sure to wear shoes that have good grip and be prepared to get muddy and wet. Started raining once I made it to the top which made it very dangerous and slippery on the way back down. Make sure you are cautious of your footing on be way back down. I found it very slippery and hard to get grip. Very beautiful views on top when the clouds move. Took about 3 hours out and back but I was stopping to take pictures. Would not recommend kids or dogs on the top part of the trail. Requires a rope to climb the steps at the very top.

Fun hike. Most people stop around the 1.5mile mark where there’s a table and rest area. Make sure to get out of the airfield before they close-otherwise security has to let you out after you go and find them.

I’ve done this trail a few times and it’s really fun. MAKE SURE YOU GO ON A CLEAR SKIES DAY. If there are low hanging clouds or you go early in the morning you can’t see anything from the top. Trail can be pretty muddy sometimes and if you’re hiking in the dark there are low hanging branches that you can hit your head on.

In the middle of the trail there is a covered picnic table to take a break at.

Very short trail. Paved the whole way so it’s good for strollers and/or people who need easy hikes with good footing. There’s whale watching spots and ocean lookouts.

Towards the top of the trail there’s an unmarked trail down to tidepools-but be careful it can be dangerous

Climbed down from the ridge trail onto the arch. You could see where all the rockclimbers had anchored their ropes. Climbing down the arch without gear was a little sketchy but overall went well. There’s great views overlooking Hanauma Bay

Very busy trail. I’ve done this trail a dozen times and have never seen it empty.

Trail is muddy so bring towels or extra shoes to protect your car

Very fun hike. You’re at the cliff edge almost he whole time. I went up the stairs and then down to this hike. Lots of rocks to climb up onto for fun photo opportunities.

Using this app was a life saver otherwise very confusing trail.

Very fun and challenging hike, you will feel like a baby deer walking down it though!

Amazing flowers and plants. Beautiful scenery.

This trail should be rated moderate. It is wet and rocky the whole way. The falls are pretty but not too much to see on the way to them. Extremely crowded.

Beautiful views of the ocean as you like . Cool lighthouse and view at the top. fairly crowded but that is typical of most trails in Oahu.

Easy for the first half getting harder for the other half. But when u reach the top is feel so great

Pretty easy but fun. Nice view and beautiful beach for sigh seeing

if you are out of shape this hike will kill you lol

Did this hike 21 April 2018 with some friends took us 7 hours it was rainy and muddy and being very careful along the crater ridgeline. A lot of people did not continue on to the crater they just did waterfalls and turned around. Which in my honest opinion is more sketchy to climb down those waterfalls than to continue around the crater. This hike is not a easy hike so I would not recommend small children or the elderly. They are some sketchy areas for sure. But we all had a big smile on our faces when we completed the hike and was grateful and humble to come out in one piece!!!

4.2 mile out and back. Great workout at the end. Some stairs but no ropes. Some washed out steps due to last heavy rains. Bring water, snacks, micro spikes and rain gear. Shorts ok as trail in great shape.

easy hike with very clear paths. don't wear thongs,flip-flops

I appreciate this spot only as a workout. The view at the top was good, but other than that nothing really to see.

easy. little walk into the ☁

A fun workout hike! Views make it worth it

Great to take family and friends visiting on!

So many stairs! But a great view and sense of accomplishment.

Quite muddy and a bit challenging up the third waterfall... but the best hike we’ve done in Oahu so far!
