Lanikai Pillbox Hike ia a great short rocky steep hike along the Ka’iwa Ridge offers great views of Lanikai and Kailua. Excellent views for either sunrise or late afternoon. It takes about 30 minutes or less to hike from the trailhead to the top pillbox and another 10 minutes to reach the ridge’s highest point.
The first part of the trail is very steep, slippery, and can be confusing. This trail is undeveloped. The trail is rocky, windy and rewards you with a great view on top of the pillboxes. No guardrails so it can be dangerous for young children. The trail is very popular and can be crowded.
