We all met up in the parking lot and set off for the top. Most of the 1.4 mile trail is paved with several switchbacks. However, there are hand-rails and benches to assist the weary hiker. Near the summit, the trail took us through a tunnel. Some advise to bring flashlights on the hike as the tunnels are not lit.
We all marveled at the various views...Honolulu, Waikiki, Maunalua Bay, Diamond Head Lighthouse, and of course the beautiful southern Oahu coastline. After chillin' at the summit for a bit, enjoying the cool ocean breezes and of course taking many pictures, we headed back down the trail. Wow...I couldn't believe it took me this long to do this hike!
