Well worth the hike, even if it is a busy location. The variety of fish is amazing & we even saw a turtle swim by. The trail is rocky and the last third is very exposed. We saw several folks in flip flops & slides. We also saw several people struggling with the heat & one who had tripped on the rocks & gotten pretty banged up. I recommend shoes that protect the feet, sandals and/or snorkel gear for at the bottom, and plenty of water & some electrolytes for the less fit hikers.

A fun place that you can see turtles!!!!! My son loves it.

I hiked all the way to the intersection of Napau trail and Naulu trail. it's kind of sad that I was only 1.5 miles from finishing the entire Napau trail, but we decided to go back for safety concerns, as it was raining heavily and the trail near the Naulu intersection was super muddy. I planned to come back maybe in a few years to start from the Naulu trail side. There are two parts I like the most: 1. I hiked a bit off the trail (not recommended) to go up to Mauna Ulu. the cone is deep and the cliff is super steep. walking along the edge made me feel unsafe, but it was a rewarding experience. 2. there is an area full of steam vents. walking in that area with the gust blowing reminded me of fancy dry ice stage effect. advices: 1. hiking shoes are necessary, and it allows you to walk faster and safer. 2. rain coat or water-proof jacket helps. the weather changes rapidly in that area, and the wind is sometimes huge. the weather was cloudy when we started, but when we reached makaupuhi Crater, it started raining. the rain became much heavier on our way back and the visibility decreased from miles to about 200 ft. 3. keep an eye on the stone piles, especially when the visibility is poor. since everything is black, you need to pay more attention to avoid losing your track. walking off the trail is kind of dangerous since some areas are hollow underneath and the floor can be unstable. 4. I can image that a lot of water is needed if it's a sunny day, given that the area is very exposed. however, I only consumed a few sips given the cool and rainy weather.

Went around 9am & the temps were perfect. Beautiful rainforest for going down & coming back up. Fun to walk across the crater floor. Some vents were hissing steam! We did this trail as a loop & my gps said 3.6 miles.

One of my favorite trails that I hiked because of the historical and cultural significance as well as a beautiful countryside. We had the greatest pleasure of having a wonderful local dog walk and guide with us to the temple and birthplace of kamehameha and all the way back.

Beautiful beach that is super popular for tourists. Beware, take extra caution if you go for a swim. It is referred to as "Tragic Slams Beach" lots of people including my father have been sucked under and hit the sand hard. Luckily he was okay besides a stiff neck and loosing his swim trunks.

Super easy “hike”. paved trail, not much to look at except a few 5-6 built up lava trees. Not really worth the drive.

Interesting & easy walk

Excellent views and very easy trail. I’ve always found this to be a very beautiful place and it truly has a spiritual vibe to it. Loved this trail!

Great views! Hike down was nice and easy, but did have mud and loose rocks to watch for. At first it seems like it’s through overgrown fauna, but once you come out of the overgrowth it’s beautiful the rest of the way down. Hiking back up is a bit more of a challenge but definitely not super difficult. Would say it’s moderate to hard. Worth the trek down!

This hike was very unplanned — my cousin and I were driving to Kona without intentions of ending up here. But, we did! She was in her flip flops and I was in some white slip on ON’s. It was muddy and the terrain was rocky but the hike both down and up were a breeze for us, despite our lack of hiking shoes. Going down to the monument is pretty smooth and painless since it’s a downhill, but the terrain can be challenging. It is a bit rocky, especially as you get closer to the monument. Yes, it is true that the snorkeling at the bottom is PHENOMENAL. I would highly recommend making the hike, I just wish it wasn’t so populated all the time. The best time to go snorkeling would probably be sunrise or just early morning in general before all the boats and tourists arrive for the day. Hiking back to the top is a bit more challenging than going down, because it is a gradual uphill the whole way. Keep in mind, you’ll be exposed to direct sunlight for a big portion of the hike, so always stay hydrated (but especially on the trek back up because it’s fairly demanding). You’ll also probably see some adorable goats on the way. Enjoy!

Although it was cold and rainy when I went, i enjoyed it a lot. Easy to navigate and BEAUTIFUL. I can only imagine what it would be like on a nicer day!

Great hike, down was the easy part. Snorkelling was the best I’ve seen but there were a lot of people. Up make sure you have water it’s harder than you think but there is shade and a decent breeze
