Spectacular! The hike brings you through a beautifully dense jungle. Papaya, mangosteen, lilikoi, and coconut throughout the trail. Yes, it is quite muddy and rocky, but we handled it fine in Xero sandals. Bring water and lunch, because your going to want to stay at this dream of a beach for a few hours. Walk back along the shore for a half mile, it’s beautiful and you’ll find a cutback onto the main trail.

Trail is technically closed. However it is absolutely beautiful area. Check it out. As an intermediate hiker I found it easy to get to the waterfall pool. However you do need adequate water tabis and you do have to cross the river at least once.

This was my first trail in the island and still love to come. easy and short or long as you prefer, many hidden beaches where relax no one around. Bring water cover shoes and spf. enjoy!

This was such a good hike, other worldly with it’s lava flow views. Not too strenuous, worth going to Napua Crater. Here are some notes: - follow the pyramids of rock, often highlighted with white driftwood - for the first crater you’ll have to take a small path off the main trail - bring bug spray for the second half - bring sun screen for the afternoon Most importantly, enjoy the uniqueness of a volcanic hike!

Beautiful! Arrived before dawn as this was a recommended sunrise hike. Lol there is no view of the sunrise! But we had the tail and beach to ourselves and plenty of shade for the climb back. No horses out but fabulous black sand and crashing waves. The road down is just under 3/4 mile by my watch and legit on the way back up. I fancy myself in shape and had a few moments of self doubt! About 30 minutes each way for us. Once at the bottom just keep heading right at any forks and you will get to the beach. Lots of bugs but no bites.

Great hike with beautiful views but no shade at all. About an hour. You can take a ride back standing in the back of a pickup for $10 which is pretty bumpy but a memorable experience of its own

Fun out and back. Entire trail is marked with volcanic rock careens. You will first cross as massive lava plume, then arrive at the ocean. At around 3.4 miles in you will see some ruins. The one ruin is blatantly obvious and the other blends in well with the surrounding vegetation. If you don’t want to travel the whole 18 miles; the 7 mile round trip to the ruins is totally worth it.

Well maintained trail in a pristine and shady forest setting. Easy and relaxing. Well worth to add the Gulch and Jeep trails, which start at the same point and add another 90 Min to this otherwise very short trail. It’s often been reported as wet and muddy but we had none of that at the beginning of November.

Full out and back is about 12.2 miles. This feels like two separate trails. Initially you start on a field with minimal shade and volcanic rocks as far as the eye can see. They you abruptly move into the rain forest. The first crater was easy to get to; about 3.7 miles out from the start with with a volcanic field. Just watch your footing on the aha. The second crater had quite a lot of over grown brush, but still easy to navigate. All the hills were not very steep, just gradual and long. Bring lost of water as it gets hot. In the end, totally worth it.

Great hike, first time doing this difficult of a hike. Missed the trail sign starting up and took the Jeep road most the way up which doubles the miles going up, but we made it and finally found the trail. Didn’t make it all the way to the summit due to the time (because of the wrong way going up), but found the trail going back down and it was a fun hike. Hope to come back someday and hike all the way to the summit.

Be ready for a most enjoyable adventure to get to the square. Wear good shoes and do not go down or climb in sandals. Bring a lot of water since the climb is more difficult.

If you’re going here, bring LOTS of water as it is very hot and half the trail has no shade. This is definitely a hard trail, not recommended if you’re looking for a nice stroll. Once down at the shore it’s really cool and picturesque.

Short trail. Great views. You can go right at the guard and he will show you where you can go straight also. Good for kids.

While not a hike, it is a great path for walking or jogging far enough from homes and close enough to the ocean to get good exercise and rejuvenate the spirit.

Don’t follow this map once you get into Waimanu valley. Go down along the campsites down at the beach and head towards the last campsite and then towards the waterfall. The trail is marked with pink ribbons. It’s very easy to get there 45mins-1 hour tops from the beach at Waimanu.
