A new fav! Loved the inclines to include the 196 stairs at the onset. Added a new rope near the completion point/summit.

Elevation gained 1624ft.
Distance to turn, 2.10 miles

Be advised, several areas are shear like along the ridge with a narrow margin of trail. Also, you'll acquire some friends in the way of burs that stick to your clothing.

Trail totally overgrown. Made it in a little ways then totally lost the trail and gps didn’t help. Trail is gone.

Completed with a "newbie" so the trek was slow and with the recent rains some definite slick spots.

Decided to take the road back since the trail was a little slick.

Ended up being 2.5 miles.

Completed a portion but then switched to Nuihana. Other portion to follow later....completed today( a month later) - good 2.6 miles lots of elevation change, little mud since no real rains lately.

Nice canopy for shade when it's hot out.

Good for families and kids.

Definitely a cardio workout! Beautiful views up top. Wouldn't recommend beginners to do it.

Almost 200 stairsteps lead off this very nice ridge hike. We managed to complete in just over 3 hours and only 1 fall. There is a likely turnaround point about 2/3 of the way. Go to the end before turning around, it’s worth it.

Hiked this trail today. Would rate it high end of moderate because of overgrown uluhe, etc in the last mile plus covering the single track and very muddy trail. Bring a few liters of water and some snacks. Had a few ropes but not really needed. GPS showed 8.04 miles.

Does anyone know if there is flowing water/springs on this trail that you can use for purifying?

Moderate hike with some nice views. Best to park on Kalihi Street and walk to trailhead. About 2.1 miles out to turnaround area. Looks like the trail goes further through some uluhe, but saved that for next time.

Easy hike with geocaching, only negative is the pig hunters with dogs.

Great easy hiking with options to connect to other trails. Shaded and interesting change in plant life as you move along. Only downside is no parking lot but you can park on the road and walk to the trailheads. Just be careful because the road is winding and narrow with limited shoulder space.

Very easy hike. Absolutely beautiful foliage.

To find this trail, you need to walk all the way up Manaiki Pl. When you reach the end of the street, look for a white mailbox to your right. Take the stairs right next to the mailbox. While it looks like the stairs to someone's home, continue on until the stairs become a trail. You will know you're on the right track when you reach a grafitti- covered concrete water tank. The ridgeline trail end when you reach a breezy cluster of pine trees, despite the GPS map saying you are only halfway. Enjoy!

street parking and walk around the elementary school grounds, up a walk, and cut through the playground along the fence and the trailhead is pretty obvious. quick ascent up to radar road and then a fairly monotonous up and down ridge hike until near the end. the sights along the way are ok. lots of scratchy ferns. the final ascent is where this gets a hard rating. definitely more fun at the end and probably for more experienced folks. took 7 hours total including breaks at an easy pace.

Cross the street from Nalonieha Street and go past the water pumping station to the end of the street. Take the steep steps into the woods and you are on the trail. We enjoyed the trail: hiking sticks are recommended.

A great hike which is a bit tedious in the beginning but the views are worth it.

Parked at the Na Pueo Park, and headed up the Kapalama Trail to the Lanihuli summit. Pouring rain today for the first couple hours and clouds at the top...will have to do this hike again when it is clear. Even with all the rain, the trail was not muddy at all which made the hike more enjoyable.

Steady gain in elevation to an OK view at the top. good trail for running tho its a bit narrow and with other hikers / runners you end up stopping a lot. Some rocky parts tht are good foot placement practice, and a few muddy spots. Good trail for kids and dogs are welcome.

Great trail with good elevation change. Dogs welcome and good for all ages. mostly shaded so that helps keep you cool. You will need to park about 15 yards / meters from the trail head at one of the pull offs. This is a connector trail that links into several other trails in the Makiki Valley, most notably as the top portion of the loop that includes the Maunalaha Trail.
