Steep climb but every step is rewarded 1000X when you get to the top. Amazing views from up there. Cool WWII Japanese guns that are also very interesting to see. It's something that you really have to do.

We took the road that was barely marked "Sokehs" and kept going and going. Through a residential area, through lots of tropical plants, more houses (watch out for dogs or people walking on the road). Maybe 20 minutes before we got to a clearing and could see the views. It was very pretty, I'm not sure if we made it to the end of the road and could have kept going to hike it but we didn't have much time so only took a look at it from below.

A bit steep at first but doable for kids and adults. You will see WWII guns in the middle of the jungle and a gorgeous view of Pohnpei harbor down below.

The path is pretty clear up the Rock, and en route there are a number of ancient WWII Japanese gun emplacements, long disused of course. At one point, the rock face requires pretty intense scaling, though there are pipes you can leverage off. At the top, there are not only pineapples (!) but also the absolute best views on the entire island. Be sure to take binoculars and a camera--all wrapped in plastic though, because my god does it rain there.

We hired Ward from The Village to drive us around. He took us all over the island and to Sokehs island. From the top of the hill you could see the rock. Very nice view. Oh the hike up the hill we visited some Japanese WWII AAA batteries. Then over to the Cell Towers for a great view of the island.
