There are 1,048 steps up to Koko head and it can be intimidating or stimulating depending upon what kind of person you are. For me it is stimulating . . . for my family, intimidating. Neeless to say me and my 16 yr old made it to the top in record time ran half way down and met up with my husband, daughter, and 13yr old son and then I went back up with them. The scenery is gorgeous since you have a view the entire way and it is the best work out ever for your legs! There was a man there that was going up and down 3 times that day because he was trying to get back into shape! Kudos to him! Don't miss this one but make sure you stretch out first! Best days to go are . . . cloudy with no rain. A few horse flies so bring the repellant or wear long pants and sleeves.

Let's put it this way. You arrive at Koko Head Park and first have the psychological challenge of looking at the trail that goes STRAIGHT up a huge mountain. At this point you realize this is no easy day hike with your family. This is a challenging 1000+ steps (which are actually railroad ties) to the top. And yes, the rusty tracks are still there... There's little to no shade and it's a hot, sweaty, mcnasty hike to the top. Most people will need a few breaks... However, once you reach the top, there are some cool WWII style bunkers and one of the best views I've seen of OAHU. FANTASTIC. Plan time for a nap on the beach after.... and a soapy shower.

Not recommended for young children or out of shape people... also, there is one sketchy part where you have to walk across a makeshift bridge (composed of train tracks)... no guard rail, and yes, you can fall 10-15 feet if you lose your balance.

Did the hike with my wife and 7 year old son. It's not a difficult hike, just straight up a mountain with no turns at all, but it's physically challenging because you are going straight up. Bring WATER! Take breaks! The view at the top is awesome!
