I walked this trail with my friend and her two kids. The oldest being 3 and he did just fine. It's an easy trek with either a shorter route (the lower) and a longer trek (the upper part). The view from the top is just breath taking. The only thing that is extremely difficult is parking, there were not many... More

Perfect short scenic hike for the family with lots of different foliage and trees. Great views of Kaneohe Bay. We found the trail to Oneawa Trail and went as far as a fence warning of high radio frequencies beyond the fence so we didn't want to chance it especially with our daughter. This hike is so beautiful. If you go... More

The ground is unstable. With wet leaves, tree trunks sticking out and shifting rocks hike with caution. We went hiking with my friends 15 month old strapped to her and mom almost fell twice with the baby. But it is beautiful and a fun hike.

Its a short and easy hike so we took our daughter with us. My husband who is a local never knew this place existed so we went here as soon as we heard about it. I like it cause it is not so touristy, not crowded, its clean plus the amazing view.

Beautiful lookout over Kaneohe bay and the Koolau mountains. There are strawberry guava trees on top. There is a bamboo forest path that makes a tunnel along the path. It's a great easy quick hike. It can be slippery after a hard rain. There are a few pullout parking spots near the trailhead.

Not much room for parking but worth the hike. There is a map at the bottom of the trail, but you just need to keep walking uphill if you get lost.

The trailhead is in a residential neighborhood and parking is challenging, but don't let that stop you from visiting. This is a beautiful, short hike that gives you great views of kaneohe bay. We had a bit of a hard time finding the entrance because a car was parked in front of it, but some friendly people pointed us in... More

My husband and I were on this side of town for a zipline and decided to check out TripAdvisor. We have done hikes that were hours long. This is less than a mile. It is a lot of uphill. It was VERY clean. There was absolutely no tourist trash or empty water bottles. There is a split to the left... More

This is located in a quiet residential neighborhood above Kaneohe Bay drive. It is a very short hike. Definitely less than 1 mile, but there are breathtaking views of Kaneohe Bay.
