What to expect: This hike is very steep and has a large incline to the Steep incline to the top of the Koolau ridge. The trailhead begins at the end of Hahaione st (in Hawaii Kai). Follow the pink ribbons through what appears to be a campground filled with tons of airsoft pellets (They have airsoft battles here). The trail will start to incline up toward the top of the ridgeline. This trail is covered from the sun for the most part, but still expect to catch a sweat (And a good workout). You can connect this hike to the Kuli'ou'ou ridge trail.

Once you reach the top you can see Waiamanalo, Kaneohe, and the coastline of the South Shore. Expect the hike to take you about 2-3 hours on average.
