“Great place to see a great view of Honolulu city! Just a 10 min drive from Waikiki and a short walk from the parking area to a beautiful view. Go around 4:30pm - 5:30pm and if there is some rain in the valley, you can see a gorgeous rainbow. *Just don't leave your important stuff in the car. Thieves will break your car window to steal your bags. ”

Many scenic pull overs & trail heads along the entire mountain.”
