Need to Know

No bathrooms anywhere on the trail, however, about a mile before you get to the trailhead, the Opaeka'a Falls lookout stop did have a public bathroom.

Description

Enter the trail from Kuamo'o Road between mile marker 2 and 3 where there is a trailhead sign on the right and roadside parking available. Most of the trail is through the forest with some views along the way. There is a covered picnic area close to the top for a break. The view from the top is amazing! If you get all the way to the top of the giant's chin/nose area, you can see 360 degree views of the island. Incredible!
