  • Excellent hike. Fresh air, lush landscape. Trail well maintained. Some trail areas uneven due to tree roots or erosion. Best when trail is not muddy, i.e. avoid going day after heavy rain or on rainy ...  more »
  • Definitely enjoyed this long hike. We stretched it out and did part of the summit trail which offered some great views. Then we made an offereing at the temple ruins on the way out. Lots of fun!  more »
  • Hiking this trail was on my bucket list for our family trip to Oahu because GC23 is located on the trail. This geocache was placed in July 2000 and is one of the oldest ones I've ever found. There is ...  more »

  • Good hike, about five miles. Not too difficult, but parts of it will make you sweat. Pretty shaded most of the way. Saw a couple of hikers with their dogs. Be sure to check the weather, because it can get muddy when it rains. Takes you uphill through luscious scenery and offers views of the harbor and H3. In the area, there's chickens, different kinds of birds, and watch out for the wild pigs! Try to do this with a partner, because there's parts that if you take a wrong step, you could end up in big trouble.
  • Pretty 5.5 mile hike mostly on flat or gently rising / declining terrain. My wife, one year old daughter and I did it in about 2 hours. Great place for exercise and fresh air. A few nice views of Pearl Harbor and the H3. A plethora of various tree species can be seen as you make your way through the forest. Some parts of the loop feel less like you’re in Hawaii and more in a park somewhere on the American west coast. Trail is dirt all the way and some parts will get muddy when it rains.
  • Nice trail. Not that intense. Tons of cool looking eucalyptus trees and roots. Nice walk to bring your dogs along on. In total it's about 4.5 miles and takes 2-3 hours to complete. By the trail head there is a bathroom and drinking fountain. Bring a couple liters of water. Also there is a picnic area with a bunch of benches, but there were a lot of mosquitoes in that area. Only place on the island I've really seen them so far.
  • 5 miles long, fairly popular trail, can be muddy about halfway through. Pet friendly, dogs must be on leash. Trail is mostly shaded and perfect for a pleasant weekend hike or trail running.
  • This is a perfect loop for those who want some distance either moderate elevation gain. It is almost entirely shaded. Vistas are nice, but the backside overlooks the freeway.
