The trail is reached thru the Friendship gardens entrance, which is a nice residential area garden. The trail then meanders up the hill side for a ways and can be a loop as mentioned in previous review.

Rains and saturated ground caused lots a trees down a few months ago, but all seems fair now. Enjoy the climb and the views.

Nice park, the path is really what you decide only because it's a fairly large park with lots of beach access. This path is beach park path, no elevation difficulties and not sure why it's rated moderate. Suppose you could run the beaches?

Hiked Sep 2018
I’m not sure if we just got lucky and hiked on a day that the trail was pretty calm, or if this is always a pretty calm trail to hike but Pu’u Ma was definitely a nice stroll through the woods. It’s a nice tame walk through the Forrest and seemingly ideal for a hot or humid day since you’re surrounded by trees the entire way up. It’s also a great hike to take your dogs on.
There isn’t much of a view of anything but woods on the way up so it’s definitely a time to just be in the moment. Three fourths of the way up you’ll see a root pathway that actually looks like something you would find in an enchanted forest and that’s when you know you’re almost there. After the sign on the top, the view opens up to...
Well, I have to leave something to the imagination don’t I? Check it out.

Amazing hike. Slightly muddy. Parked near McDonald’s and walked on the side of the highway a bit before the trailhead.

Beautiful hike. Parked at the shopping center and walked to the trail head along the side of the road, next to the guard rail. Trail is shaded most of the way. There are some steep areas, when it had rained I wouldn't recommend going, to slippery. Once you reach the top there's an amazing view of the bay. I took my 5 & 7 yr olds. They did fine but this was their first moderate rated hike. I think it's rated that because of the steep inclines. This trail is a secret gem.

9/8/2018-Started our trek around 0750 and cane across 11 groups of hikers. The ground was relatively dry but it’s definitely more eroded since the last time we visited. There wasn’t much of a breeze so it felt hotter than usual. However the view of Kaneohe Bay at the end was rewarding.

This hike is usually done in a loop ( counterclockwise). Keep a lookout for a green wooden 'LOOP' sign from the beginning of the hike. The contour trail back can be very muddy due to pig activities. Most people take the right fork and climb straight up the ridge to the viewpoint next to some utility poles. Just keep your eyes peel for critical junctions.

Beautiful hike!

Yes you can do a loop past the steep section after the view into the quarry. It will take you to neighbourhood and walk the road to complete the loop. Check my recording.

Same as Oneawa Hills hike

Very grassy/leafy hike! Would recommend wearing pants. A lot of this is spent walking through tall grass-like plants. Overall not a difficult hike. It branches off the friendship trail so make sure to keep checking this app to make sure you’re on it! At the end there seems to be a steep downward trail that supposedly brings you out to the quarry. We just went back the way we came to the beginning of the hike. Hike took about 3.5 hours from start to finish, including taking several breaks to take pictures.

Had a lot of fun hiking this with my best friend and her two kids (1.5 and 9). Wear bug repellant. Views are beautiful, buildings are beautiful and show history. Parking is not fun. Be sure and stay in the dirt.

Great hike.... All up hill, lots of mud after a rain but the views are amazing.....

love Hamama good for exercise, views, and cooling off after a nice workout

This was a pretty cool hike. We did this with the little guys (7 & 4) in slippas with ease. The pool is cool but if it’s crowded just go a few more steps up the trail to the bridge and get in there. Not as deep but just as refreshing. The waterfall was worth the hike. Go early to ensure you have some time to yourself. It gets pretty crowded midday. Nice way to spend a Sunday with ohana!!

Awesome place and with a nice swimming area. Unfortunately I lost my knock off go pro there and am more concerned with losing all the great pictures I took than the camera itself. So if anyone finds it u are more than welcome to keep the camera I just want the memory card. (contour camera)

easy to find. did it with 2 kids (ages 7 and 4). weather was good, can see slippery areas if it had rained. views were awesome.

beautiful after a bunch of rain. fun to hang out and cool off. very easy hike

My favorite workout spot!!

Starts from the Friendship Garden and branches off. We didn't pay attention and did the Friendship trail 1.5 times. Need to look for the paths leading upward. After branching off, set of ropes to help you up. With the heat and the incline it can be tough. Lots of tall grass and dusty areas. I needed to be somewhere so turned around after the ropes. A group we passed said they got out to the quarry.

Nice quick hike!

Probably my favorite waterfall on island. The pool at the beginning of the trail is so clear and refreshing. The hike up is not very shaded. It is a great hike for experienced children hikers.

Loved this hike! Definitely a leg workout with the up and down ridges but the views are worth it!

This is a short hike near the Byodo In Temple. There are some nice flowers and a pretty nice view of Kaneohe Bay. Good for a quick stop.

Awesome little hike, the falls is awesome and very unique, BUT, the real treasure comes early in the hike as there is a nice little pond to swim in.

Loved the foliage! Found a couple of Jasmine trees that were incredibly fragrant! Beautiful hike with lots of fascinating plants.

Could someone tell me how the parking is?

Beautiful botanical garden. With lots of plants and flowers and nice view to the lake. Fun for everyone and interesting to visit.

Easy, but on rainy days might get too muddy and slippery. Beautiful and short trail with a nice waterfall at the end. Great for families and pets, too.
