The shortest and most challenging hike! It’s 1,048 stairs to the top! It’s a great cardio workout! You have a great view of Hanauma Bay and Hawaii Kai.

Once you get to the trailhead, don’t get scared! It looks intimidating, but just go one step at a time! Take breaks! I’ve done this trail over 7 times now. It’s still hard!

There is a bridge at about 500 steps. You can go across it or go around it. Just be careful and it gets pretty slippery! I fell running down it and it was not pretty. I posted the video on YouTube.

The bridge

After the bridge, it is steeper. Just take your time and enjoy the view from the top.

Bring water and a snack!

I time myself every time I do this. I’m still trying to beat my PR going up! (21 min)

Sunset, but it gets dark pretty quick!
