Friendship Garden

Total Distance: 0.9miles

Elevation Gain: 262ft

Diffuculty: easy

Treachery: very little to none. 

This is a great little trail for families.  If you’re going for the botanical garden piece of it don’t bother.  Very few things are marked and it’s a little overgrown in that aspect.  There are several other botanical gardens on the island.  The trail is well traveled though and has a gentle slope the whole way.  There is a nice little tea house and a couple of cool chinese statues along the way.  There is also a lookout where you can see all of Kaneohe and most of MCBH.  Overall a short but enjoyable hike. 

The trailhead is on Kokokahi Place in Kaneohe.  There is a connecting trail called Kokokahi Ridge or Oneawa Hills.  We saw the start of it and started to climb up and decided not to do it today. 

On the way out we ran into a nice gentleman who told us about the other trail and he said that once you get up to the top it’s pretty flat.  But he definately acknowledged that getting up there was a steep climb.  Something to come back for another day I guess.
