This is Koko Head hike is really difficult. I like to describe it as “you’ll need strength going up and strategy going down,” and here’s why:
- Your ascent is pretty similar to doing 50 minutes of level 60 on the stairmaster at the gym. By the time you’re at the top, you’re drenched in your own disgusting sweat and you feel pretty gross and you probably don’t look that cute.
- Going down can be hard on your knees if you don’t take it slowly. The descent requires strategy in your foot placement because the trail is pretty dusty and can be slippery at points, so make sure each step you take is solid.
After hiking this for the 2nd time I decided to rename the hike Koko DEAD because you will be DEAD once you reach the summit.
