Does not exist! We tried to find the trail for an hour, no luck, and we also asked the ranger at Vinapu who also said there is no coastal path to Rano Kau.
That said, Vinapu is well worth a visit and the site has a lot of interesting cultural history, and Rano Kau is just awesome.

Exciting, technical trail that I would rate as difficult not so much for any elevation gains, but more for the loose rocks and ever-changing landscape. Park at the Portillo Hotel and Ski Resort (free) in the off-season (southern hemisphere summer) and proceed to the left side of the lake. Most of the trail is along the shoreline and is relatively easy with a few climbs to circumvent snow gullies and steep shoreline spots that are impassable. Dangerous, loose rocks on climbs and descents, but the views are mind-blowing and will leave a lasting impression. Not sure about overnight restrictions, but there is no entry fee and swimming is allowed but as with any alpine lake, it is darn cold. Mystical location that oozes history. Bring lots of water and sunscreen. The fishing is decent too.
