This hike is fairly easy but so beautiful. I could sit and look at the lighthouse with the ocean all day. Although next time I do this hike, I plan to do it during the sunrise.

Beautiful scenery but a super short & easy trail!

We love this trail! the views are awesome especially during the "winter" when the whales are out. We take our puppy out there as much a possible.

The best hike on Hawaii - Hands down! We did seven hikes on Oahu while we were there and this along with the Lanikai pill boxes were my absolute favorite.

Pretty hike, but I think I missed a turn to go up to Ridge line. Ended at 2600ft and at a point where I would have to go way down a ridge to climb up the huge final hill. Not being able to even see where the trail even went up, I guess I screwed up. From there I could clearly see the Moanalua trail with folks going up to the Ridge. There was one sign I pass saying "To Road Marker 12" and I wonder if that was the way to go. Not sure. Wonder if it is crossover. Hmmm

Did 7.5 Round Trip, up to 2600ft

3L water good and snacks need for energy

Bees Bees Bees.
Bees as you start trail near neighborhood, second batch at the left turn to side road, and third batch is at the 3.25 ish in a tree on right side of narrow trail. There is a trail to get around it if you back up. Early morning they weren't out, but when the sun shines, look out. Made the return walk exciting.

Awesome hike, not hard, and the views amazing once your get all the up the Ridge line. Bonus is the old gun battery remains there at the beginning.

Took my 2 year old and 5 year old on the first 1.5-2 miles of this trail. Super kid friendly, only worry will be the bridges. Lots of mud so super fun and slippery.

It was a challenging hike with spectacular views! Did not disappoint.

Manoa Cliff trail is a great trail but is Not a loop trail. Any way you go after you get to the end T intersection (Kalawahine Trail) goes to the left and right. We took the trail left and ended up higher on the Round Top Rd and had to walk left out of trail onto the road for 2 miles to get back to our car. Best idea if you want a smaller loop is to take Puu Ohia trail to left before the end of Manoa Cliff trail and circle back to the Round Top Rd closer to the parking. Either way you are walking the road unless you turn around and retrace Manoa Cliff trail. Great trail. Beautiful view and tons of great plants and fruiting plants. Highly recommend if you know the loop is not on the trail
