What people say

"This 2.3-mile out-and-back trail is near Kaneohe and is considered to be a moderately challenging route. It takes an average of 1 h 18 min to complete! One small part is overgrown, but you can have to continue through this to continue to the top (don’t let it scare you or cause you to turnaround or you’ll miss the incredible views that are not far from this point!) Park on the street just past McDonald's. Walk back down to traffic light, take a left, walk along highway until guardrail ends to find trailhead (AllTrails trail map will take you there). There are "No Trespassing" signs, but other reviewers indicated this was for the town home complex next to the trail."
"Many people go to lanikai pillbox, which is a beautiful hike! This pillbox is nice because it’s so much less populated, so you can experience the pillbox with fewer other people and it’s a well maintained trail with gorgeous views of Kaneohe bay. "
