I repeat, do not hike the Koko Head stairs in the middle of the day! Ok, maybe I am being a bit dramatic, but I want to help you have the most enjoyable time that you can on the Koko Head Trail. This trail has many names, such as the Koko Crater Railway Trail, Koko Head Trail, Koko Head Stairs, etc…, but they are all the same trail. Essentially, you hike up what was once an old supply railway for the barracks that were at the top of Koko Head. This seems simple enough, but for the unprepared, this is a tough hike.
