I did this hike with 2 girlfriends last fall and the entire time I kept thinking how beautiful it was, how I couldn't wait to show my mom when she finally got the chance to come to Hawaii for her first time. Definitely some of the most breath taking views in all the island. I've done almost every public hike... More

The new iron fence at the entrance of the trail and the warning sign are very clear signal from the land owner that the land is private property, not public land. Let's respect other people's property like we want others to respect ours. I certainly don't want other people to trespass into my property. Hawaii is a beautiful island and... More

Mariner's Ridge, owned by a private estate, has been officially closed since April 2013 with a couple of sings but many hikers ignored the warning and entered the trail crossing the chains. As another reviewer reported, a senior tourist fell off and died from a combination of heart attack and the fall in June. A couple of weeks later, a... More

We hiked this trail and found it tough but doable for most Bring water and good shoes a walking stick would be helpful The sites are great and will reward your efforts Didn't like the chains saying keep out These trails are for all and I hope they will stay free for the public. I found the trail clean and... More

The trail can be a little challenging in places for a weekend warrior, but the views were incredible!

The Mariner's Ridge trail is now closed. Toward the end of June, a Korean man, 70 years old, fell to his death at the lookout. So sad. In February, I fell and broke my wrist as I started to descend from the lookout. (I walked out). Violators may be persecuted. Try hiking the Makiki Hights trail instead.

One of the most popular trails in Honolulu, Mariner's Ridge trail is at the top of a hill in residential community in east Honolulu. Owned by a large private estate, the trail is now closed to the public with two warnings not to trespass. There's obviously a liability issue in case hikers get injured. In recent years, the number of... More

I drove an hour and a half from north shore to this trail only to find that it is closed as of April 5th 2013! There are chains and signs posted that prohibit entry. I did not want to risk being "prosecuted" as the signs stated or having my car impounded. Find another trail-

Very nice trail that starts in a neighborhood community. The hike up took longer than I thought it would take, and there were several spots closer to the end of the trail where it was difficult to hike, but the view at the top is incredible! wear some good hiking shoes, b/c there were some parts that were slippery due...
