“A serious hike for some serious views”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

Koko head starts off easy enough but soon turns into the best workout you've probably had in a lonnnnng time. The old railroad ties take a steep incline up to the top of Koko head and the way down is almost just as challenging but totally worth it!

“20 minutes to the top!!!”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

Wanted to do it in 15-20 mins as I head the locals do it in that time.. Being a fitness junkie and competitive even with my own self - I had to DO IT!! it was exhausting ! I have strength but not a ton of cardio strength. once you get to the tip top its all worth the pain and sweet! its wind as hell almost cold at the top. lol! Dont go on the weekends! its hard to do with people all over the trail going slow. if you go slow watch out for the folks who are trucking! a must do for all just for the 360 view of the island!

Challenging, fun, great views. Bring a flashlight when hiking in the morning. It's "only" 1,048 steps.
