This trail starts off narrow but quickly widens up to 20 feet in certain areas. There are some areas of shade, but for the most part, it is exposed to the skies.
It’s a moderate trail, and the slopes are mostly gradual. If short on time, this is an ideal trail as it is accessed directly from the street, however, if you’re up for adventure, you can meander onto the East View Trails, Alosta Canyon South Fork, or complete the trail and continue on to the South Hills Backbone Trail
. Please travel with caution; this is a multi-use trail available to hikers, bicyclists, and equestrians.
Street parking is available on Elwood Avenue or at South Hills Park along Mauna Loa, but you must take Big Dalton Wash traveling east to get to Elwood Avenue.
