    Keep hiking past the two pill boxes to avoid the crowds and take in the scenic views. Wear hiking boots if possible, but sneakers at the very least.

    'This photo was taken at the Lanikai Pillboxes. I suggest the nearby Olomana trail for people that aren't afraid/skilled enough for it. Absolutely incredible.' – Submitted by Bernie W. on Facebook

    The trek up to the first bunker is the hardest part. Going to the second bunker is much easier. Just take your time, watch your footing, and you'll be fine. Enjoy the views!

    Tricky to find the start of the trail but well worth the slightly difficult hike up to the pillboxes for an amazing view. Def not for slipper wearers!

    The hike is short and sweet but make sure you watch your step coming down. It can be deceivingly slippery when it's super dry.

    Be adventurous and hike past the second bunker. It make the hike to be a better workout and provides a different view of Kailua.

    Short hike but steep. Beautiful payoff at the top. Don't wear slippers (or as us mainlanders call them flip flops).

    The view is much better up here. The trek between the 1st and 2nd pillbox is not bad at all.
