  • The trail going up was very rocky. It was a bit moist when we went. All in all, no one died or got hurt. The trail itself was short, but steep. There was a National Park Ranger with a group of young people already 20 minutes ahead of us and we manged to catch up with them, which was pretty cool. Got to learn a little history of how the cannons were transported up the mountain. Also got to see a glimpse of the tracking trail in which was used to transport the equipment up the mountain. National Park Ranger Pua was very detailed in sharing history with us. Unfortunately, we only managed to make it to the second canon. The trail to go up to the third canon was too steep and wet. This train leads to Tram Way, which is the next hiking area that I want to explore. Hopefully I don't fall off and brake my bones or die. After the hike, we went for brunch and ended the day kayaking at Utulei beach, which awesome. Although I must confess, I flipped off the kayak multiple times. The artwork of balancing on the kayak is pretty challenging, but I managed to adapt and made it. If you have time, this should be on your bucket list because its freak-in awesome.
  • Gorgeous views of the harbour from certain parts of the trail.
