“Literally right up the street from our house. This is a great trail along the ridge. There are some boulders that you have to climb up and down along the trail. A few miles in you will come to a small clearing overlooking Manoa Valley and Waikiki. I usually pack a little snack and sit there appreciating the view, then turn around. I've never gone past the clearing, but I've been told you can keep going although it gets pretty steep.”
