Lanikai Pillbox

Lanikai Pillbox


It was a nice clear day for hiking.  It was a my first time at the pillboxes but I’ve read about it.  It’s always classified as easy and short so hence I thought I came prepared with no water and no shoes.  Big mistake!  90% of this trail is actually an incline.  It is quite short though.

I realized how out of shape I was because I was so winded halfway through! With much encouragement from my friends we made it to the first bunker.

This hike provides sweeping views of Lanikai as well as scenic views of Kailua and of Bellows beach.

After reaching the second bunker it was time to head down.  The way down is much trickier than the way up becuase of the gradation of the trail.  It was a slip and slide and I fell twice and actually cut my hand!

The one thing I can say though is that if you come prepared (with shoes and water) this is a fantastic hike filled with great views and fun obstacles, given you are not coming straight from a 12 hour night shift from work =).
