A succession of 14 switchbacks would elevate you towards the cliff. The switchbacks are quite long, but they are not really steep. This climb ends at a small grove of ironwood tress, where you will also find a gully. A small covered picnic table is also found at this point. The trail then meanders through a wide dirt path with Silk Oaks and Christmas berry shrubs. As you walk, the trail can steeply rise and fall a number of times.
Near the 1,600 feet mark, you will find the trail ascending steeply through a forest of Cook Pine Trees, till you reach a clearing that will offer you a great view of the North Shore. The road splits somewhere after this point, but you should keep walking straight.
In the turnaround point, you will come across the Kuaokala Public Hunting Area with a bullet ridden sign declaring itself. After a longer steep climb, you should reach the true summit, from where you can enjoy a great view of the Ohikilolo Ridge, the Waianae mountain range and the Makua Valley.
