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.

We had a damn good shot at this one for a couple in their 50's. A bit sore today. Don't go doing this one if you have an old knee injury like me! other than that it was amazing, beautiful, breath taking and really worth experiencing.

Our route:
We staged a car at Wa'ahila state park at 7am, and drove the 10-15min to Pu'u Pia/Kolowalu trailhead. Hiked up to Mount Olympus then down Wa'ahila trail back to the park. 5.5mi, 2600ft elev, and 5hrs total, that's with multiple longer breaks as well.

The ascent is relentless, but it's really not that bad if you're in top shape and the conditions aren't wet. Liken it to 3x Koko Head maybe? Very strenuous for most, but doable. No scary parts or death drops, sorry thrill seekers. But there are some stunning views, and if you're lucky enough to have a clear day at the summit, you'll want to hangout for a while!

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 :)
