A powerful storm passed over the island of Oahu on 2/14/2015 which caused significant damage to the stairway, rendering them unusable. After the storm damage, five hikers got stuck on the east side of the mountain's ridge and were trapped overnight and had to be rescued.

Awesome... difficult though, bring water and snacks, change of clothes (you're going to sweat, and you're climbing a mountain so it's likely chilly/windy on top) and definitely clean up after yourself. Also, be respectful and don't disturb the locals. Get dropped off, or at least don't park near the trailhead. There's a bus stop by the mall for your return to wherever you need to go. This hike is closed and there will likely be a guard posted so be careful. The moanalua trail is a more legal back way to get to the stairs without actually taking the stairs or having to sneak around the gates and guard or through anyone's yard. Questions? email me... I may answer. Biggallemore@gmail.com
