Good work out. Brought our 7 month old dog and he seemed to love it. If you take the right side maunalaha trail, you will ascend up faster and be at the top in no time. Once at the top then its all downhill. If you want to ascend up slowly then take the left side to Kanealole trail. Its a loop that connects to other trails. Makiki valley trail is very shaded and beautiful. Bring some bug spray.

Easy but nice for everyone.

The view was beautiful. Halfway up it started to rain, therefore the trail became more slippery and muddy. My husband and I decided to take the kids and it was a wonderful family experience for us.

Would call this more of a walk than a hike, one definitely for the family and different abilities :)
We took some really beautiful photos here, and the waterfall at the end is great! Definitely worth a visit and doesn’t take up too much of your time. It rained when we was there which made some parts a tiny bit slippery but wear trainers and you’ll be absolutely fine :)

It’s not really a hike, more like a steep five minute walk. I would NOT recommend bringing kids as it’s windy and narrow.

Definitely one of the most beautiful hikes on Oahu and is one of my favorites. Also a good place for birding and is where I saw my first native Hawaiian forest bird, the female amakihi. I posted up a photo I took of it and is a beautiful small green bird. A must do!

Great hike , relatively short. 37 min up , 20 min down. Zero shade path is in full sun.

We all rented kayaks to get to Chinaman’s Hat. Super fun day! My 6 came with us and hiked up to the top too! We ate our lunch here and hung out for a bit. We could see a monk seal swimming around and a few turtles while we were at the top. Beautiful and perfect weather.
