This is a more difficult hike than diamond head. At times the hike is pretty steep. Amazing views from the top when you arrive.

Like so many have stated before, this is a great, fairly challenging hike with incredible views. At times it can get very busy, so be aware and chose your time wisely. In addition, going down seems much more steep!

Really unique hike where you're climbing along an old railway track (at a very high incline) to the crater of an old volcano. Yes, it is very challenging. Yes you need good shoes. If you're afraid of heights, you may be a little slow on...More

The trail itself is pretty steep, the railway pillars have rotted over time and bits are missing so watching your footing is a must. Breeze blocks have been put in place of missing parts to help you up but some are a little wobbly so...More

The hike starts off easy on the foot of the mountain, it slows down in the middle (short bridge), then I almost want to give up by the 800th step. Stopped a few more times after that because it gets more strenuous. After seeing the...More
