Start the trail from the parking lot and enter a forest of Paperbark trees, towering Mahogany trees, Taro vines and the beautiful Bird-of-Paradise plants and gently descend into a forest of Kukui trees. The trail then makes you ascend on artificial steps till you reach the first lookout with a stone bench. You could see the mountain range of the Keanae Peninsula from here.
Turn right and follow the trail as it climbs into the wood with Pala'a ferns at the side of the trail. Continue walking into the dense forest of bamboo trees and Awapuhi ginger plants. Again, turn right and walk along the way till you find prompt paths to the right leading to the ocean and valley.
The trail ends at an open picnic area that sits at a height of 875 feet. Now retrace your steps back to the first lookout. The trail loops left to an unnamed junction but you need to stay to the right where the trail descends to two small exists with benches to sit. Head down through the bamboo forest and within few steps you are back at where you have started.
