Get there early if you’re looking for secluded hike.
Very dandy at beginning. Beautiful views, highly recommend.

Easy, beautiful, interesting trail. We did this as a whole family with hikers of all skill levels, and we all enjoyed it. Great views of the coastline throughout. Recommend doing hike in the morning to avoid the heat and the crowds.

This trail was a better workout than I had expected based on reviews. Lots of walking along sand, and it gets really warm with little shade. Very beautiful and scenic hike so worth the views. I was expecting to hike down to a sandy, swimmable beach, and although it was pretty, there were signs saying the bacteria levels were high in the water. So if you’re looking to hike to a secret beach to take a dip in, this isn’t for you. But the views and good workout was worth it for me!

Beautiful hike along the coast with scenic views. Definitely an easy hike.

It’s an awesome and fairly easy as long as you take the right way. When it comes to a fork make sure you take the left if you aren’t looking for a challenge. The right is much steeper and can be exhausting in the heat. Many bunkers and definitely worth the view.

Great hike, especially at sunset. A couple switch backs and steep parts, but worth the climb once you get to the top. Can get warm and there is no shade/breeze so bring water.

July, 24, 2018. Great hike along the coast. Tallied up 6.26 RT mileage and suprisedly 1,555' elevation from the trailhead, next the golf club to Makau'wahi Cave Reserve out/back. Although, trekking along the beach, expect to get your sweat on with the tropical humidity and rough terrain when you get to lava trail part. I loved it.

Great hike, moderately difficult with rocky terrain. Beautiful sights the entire way up.

mostly uphill hike, trail in pretty good condition for most of the way although some may struggle on a few muddy portions/climbs. views on the way up of west side well worth the hike even if summit is foggy. at a good clip for an experienced hiker 4 hours round trip. fair number of people on trail after about 10am on a weekend

Beautiful views, great for trail running. Gets really hot, I ran early in the morning (before 8am) and it was already hot

Nice hike a little warm when we went today around 1000. It is a moderate hike with a lot of switchbacks, but some amazing views on top and during the climb. The climb past the pink pill box is along a ridge for a very short distance and is not for those with a fear of heights. It was moderately trafficked on a Saturday probably less trafficked on a weekday.

Go early! We got there at 9am and it was really hot and humid in the trail. There’s not much shade and the trail ends up feeling hotter because of the way it’s set up, they’re like hot pockets. Not great, pace yourself and definitely bring water & wear SPF. The pill boxes were really cool, the pink one you’ll need someone to boost you if you want photos on top of it. Incredible, gorgeous views. Worth it!!!

Nice trail for a beautiful leisurely stroll. My husband and I went mid-morning and took a lite snack and water. Not very challenging but views were definitely worth it! Bring water, Not very shady

The views, secluded (compared to Maui) beaches, and 4 sea turtles and 3 monk seals made this hike nothing short of amazing. Flat trail with rocks throughout, don't wear flip flops.

I didn’t get to finish the hike because I brought my black lab when we went to hike this in the afternoon. The trail was too hot for our lab. She started laying down to get her feet off the trail dirt. Recommend doing this in the mornings if you plan to bring your pets! Will be back to get to the pillbox, looks pretty cool from the bottom

nice hike up a steep mountain. great views!

Easy and beautiful
Roughly 5 miles along the Ocean and partially along a great golf course. Would have given 5 stars but it’s not very challenging. The views are great!

A little steep and strenuous, but the views are worth it.

Beautiful anytime, in the day time for a juicy ocean color views or for the gorgeous sunset in the evening.

Short, but a little slippery (small dry rocks), changing if the sun is out. Suggest to wear sunblock and hat anytimes. Not so great for a pets, since there is almost no shade and no breeze.

Easy trail. There is no shade though, so bring water and wear sunscreen! The views from the top are spectacular-- the colors contrast well, making for a great photo shoot!

Quick but rewarding hike. Hot and not a lot of shade. A few cool trees with exposed roots. Interesting history.

Great hike but beware of tons of mosquitoes when passing the golf course in the afternoon.

It gets very hot on the trail. I’d recommend a hike in early morning.
The views were very nice.
These is no signs marking the trail anywhere.

Not well marked. Very hot bring lots of water

Definitely do this Trail. As always the earlier the better. Less foot traffic. Trail is not really marked and don’t be concerned about getting lost just keep going east when going out and west when coming back. Near the horseback riding ranch stay high on the trail as there will be less rock hopping. Go all the way to the beach and watch for wedge-tailed shearwater marine birds that nest in that area. Impressive, large marine bird. During whale season I’m sure you will have many sightings. Turtles can be seen from any of the high cliff vantage points. I did see one. Definitely take water as always.
