WOW!! What a hike to get there, a tough one. But well worth the exercise. The view is spectacular. For all hiking enthusiast, come here and go to the WWII canons on the otherside..

I would reccomend Sokes Ridge Hike, its easy to get to and a really good work out. Takes about 30 minutes to make it up to the top from the switch back- which is as far as you can drive. On the way up there are some abandoned buildlings and gun relics, interesting. The view is great, this island is... More

Sokehs Rock is a symbol of Pohnpei. But way to top is very hard. Car cannot goes to top. You must go by walk. Above rock is small mine.

It's quite a nice walk up here about 3km round trip from the switch back. (before it gets really really steep) You can start lower if you want a bit more of a leg stretch. So this walk is to the top of the peninsula behind Sokehs rock. When you finish the steep climb you will see a few buildings.... More

Family of four with two small children. We did this hike as part of a "land tour" from The Village Hotel, with several other hotel guests. The hike is about a 10-minute drive from Kolonia. The hike started at the base of a steep jeep trail which cuts up the side of Sokehs Ridge. If you had a decent 4x4... More

Steep climb but every step is rewarded 1000X when you get to the top. Amazing views from up there. Cool WWII Japanese guns that are also very interesting to see. It's something that you really have to do.

We took the road that was barely marked "Sokehs" and kept going and going. Through a residential area, through lots of tropical plants, more houses (watch out for dogs or people walking on the road). Maybe 20 minutes before we got to a clearing and could see the views. It was very pretty, I'm not sure if we made it... More

A bit steep at first but doable for kids and adults. You will see WWII guns in the middle of the jungle and a gorgeous view of Pohnpei harbor down below.

The path is pretty clear up the Rock, and en route there are a number of ancient WWII Japanese gun emplacements, long disused of course. At one point, the rock face requires pretty intense scaling, though there are pipes you can leverage off. At the top, there are not only pineapples (!) but also the absolute best views on the...
