First, WOW. Do not listen to the *moderate* difficulty rating. Although it is pretty strait forward, the elevation gain in such a small time frame is huge! (Keep in mind that there were people running up and down multiple times with altitude masks on.) Although the difficult (at the top almost vertical) climb, the view at the top is worth it all. You can view the southern side of the island and into the crater. You also have a perfect view of Hanowma Bay. Would recommend for sure.

First off, I went hiking the day after Thanksgiving. It was SUPER busy. We tried to make it to the top for sunrise but people were super slow. We ended up missing it. The view is very beautiful from the top though. It was quite easy and was not my type of hike. The old machine gun post was very cool. If you go, you should also go to the food trucks at the bottom. (AMAZING)
