This is a fantastic location. The trail to the beach will take about five minutes to walk and does have some mildly steep spots. There are some small tide pools and cliff jumping spots on the trail to the beach that are enjoyable. The beach is in a secluded location protecting it from wind and some weather. There is a ring of rocks out in the water that slow down the waves creating a calm location with clear water. The water is calm enough for small children to easily swim in.

Great location. This location is great for cliff diving, there are a few small beach areas. The location is in a small river inlet that is enclosed by rocks from the ocean. When there is little rain run off sometimes the water can be kind of gross from plant matter.

For being less than a mile, this trail is harder than I thought it would be! The way down is more difficult because you have to scramble down rocks almost the entire way down. Good shoes are a must! Great views all around and the blowhole is fun to watch. Don’t miss the heart-shaped rock that is to the right of the blowhole.

Get here early. Catch the lady that sells warm banana bread. Wear hiking shoes. Check tides if you really want to see the blow hole explode. Watch out for sharp rock. Please dont leave trash around! Respect the land!

Breathtaking views, a heart shaped rock and an amazing workout! it’s very rocky and steep so be sure to wear sneakers! But it is a must go to!!

Loved this hike did it just before sunset as our final destination along the road to Hana ! Took us about an hour round trip but we hiked pretty quickly. They say it takes about an hour there ans back. Waterfalls breathtaking !!!

Great short hike. It’s a little up hill at the beginning but the rest is pretty flat. It took us a little less then an hour up and back.

Amazing hike. It’s a popular trail, so expect to share it with plenty others,but it’s so beautiful that it didn’t matter to me. The first waterfall is a nice one off in the distance. The bamboo forest seems pretty magical. I like the sound of them knocking into each other as the wind blows. The waterfall at the end is spectacular. There is a sign at the end of the trail that states the danger of the waterfall, but the trail continues on to go right up to the falls and it’s such a wonderful experience to look up and see the water falling down this huge cliff 400 ft above you. Just don’t go under the falls! Imagine a stick or pebble going over the top and falling 400 ft picking up velocity until it smashes into your skull. It was the perfect final destination on our road to Hana day trip.

quick and easy. very beautiful. check in advance if swimming is open (was not for us in July).

beautiful. best in early am before crowds.

Not really a “hike” but definitely an easy climb down to the bottom to get way better views. Don’t just stop at the top, the journey down and back up is not bad! I saw a woman in flip flops doing it... slowly, but still! The blow hole is pretty cool to see, as well as the waves crashing off to the side. There are huge boulders that probably are not recommended to climb on, but we did! And the views were awesome! Very beautiful down there with the sound of the crashing waves and looking at all the volcanic rock. Even the drive to and back was so beautiful!

This was one of the coolest hikes I've ever done. Every waterfall is amazing and the second half through the bamboo forest was surreal! 100% would recommend for anyone in Maui

Beautiful!!! The beaches and lava rocks are amazing. Not a hard hike at all. amazing to experience!

Walked this trail at 6:30 a.m. with a large group of folks with varying ages all the way to Black Rock and back to the Ka’anapali Beach Club. Running or walking shoes are recommended. Mostly exposed to the sun but for a few stretches of shade from trees, so definitely wear a hat and other protective wear if you’re sensitive to the sun. Enjoy views of the resorts along the trail, ocean, beach, and take in all that fresh island air.

Must go spot! The views from the trail are amazing. The path down to the blowhole is very rocky and you definitely need good shoes. The views from the bottom are even more spectacular. When we went, the blowhole was not that impressive, but it is dependent on the tides.

The hole was cool to see. It’s Not really a hike, my wife crossed the rocks in her flip flops without much trouble. It’s worthwhile to take the short walk to see the hole close up, but don’t get too close, you may end up swimming with the dolphins!!!

great hike to the falls ! highly recommend!

Well worth the trip. Very rocky. Make sure you have good footwear.

Loved every moment of it. From the bamboo forest to the crossing of the raging stream. If you don’t mind getting a little wet, go all the way!!

Loved it!! Rather muddy so go prepared. Early if you want to avoid crowds.

Good easy flat hike. Great views of the ocean. A bit crowded and busy. Park at the Polo Beach parking lot and head north.

What a treat! The falls at the end of the trail was spectacular. Walking through the bamboo forest was pretty cool also.
It had rained most of the morning, so the trail was very muddy in the afternoon. It got a little slick going down hill. Wear good traction shoes. It helped a lot. I could hike this trail every day for a year and love it every time. A must hike on Maui.

Great little adventure. Really not a hike as a climb down and then back up. You can still enjoy views from the top if you are unable to climb down. I’d suggest good shoes as it is rocky and the dirt can be slippery. Despite the warnings and crosses people were still standing right there next to the hole. Anyways beautiful pictures. Could feel the mist from the ocean. Very very windy. We were all “salty” after we left.

I wouldn’t classify this trail as a ‘hike’ but it is an amazing “must do” if you are in the area. Don’t just park and view from the top - venture down to the blowhole and you feel like you’re on another planet. It’s an easy walk down but maybe not in Flip flops as it’s very rocky and some of the lava rocks are sharp ... Don’t get too close to the blow hole and stay off of the wet rocks. The walk back up is quick and fairly easy! Don’t miss the experience by staying in the parking lot! My daughter recently re-located to Maui for a job and this was a wonderful little adventure we did before her work day began. Extra tip: go early and beat the crowds which makes for better photos!
