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.

Not much of a hike but cool views.

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.

Really tough trail! Very hot, bring lots of water and sunscreen for sure! Be ready to sweat!!

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!

Steep and rocky in most areas, very rewarding once you reach the blowhole.

It's a very easy walk along the shoreline with a few beaches to stop at for a swim along the way. The walk is mostly flat on a pathway so suitable for almost everyone. We had trouble finding parking on the north end so decided to start the round trip from the south end. I would highly recommend this as there was ample parking on the south side near Polo Beach Park.

One of my favorite trails so far. Easy to enjoy the scenery throughout the entirety of this trail but the ending view is the biggest reward!

Quick and easy trail down for you rock climbers out there. Love me some of that eye to foot coordination. The hike up is a climb but well worth the views, unique rocks and blow hole of course! Second time visiting Maui and this blow hole ❤️

Hiked early, raining so much that trail was a stream. Gushing water all down the gorge so "pools" were non-existent below. Falls along the way and at the top were thundering. Banyan tree and Bamboo Forest added to the spectacular beauty. Waimoku was worth every bit of the hike, tho couldn't get to the base of it, due to the "stream" to cross was currently a raging river.
Soaked clear through but only saw 4 other folks on hike while i was coming down, so very peaceful.

Great hike with a spectacular 400 foot waterfall at the turnaround. The bamboo forest midway was amazing

Nice area. Make sure to go on high tide as it won’t “blow” at low tide. Bring lots of water it can get hot and hiking shoes or at least tennis shoes. You can go just to the overlook which is not difficult. But if you climb down be sure to have the right footwear. There are other coves beyond that are really nice as well. Be respectful and do not get near the blowhole. Keep your eye on the sea as I have heard some have been washed away or fallen into the hole.

Realy nice hike. Easy, except it is rocky.

Short and fairly easy trail down to the Nakalele blowhole. There are a few steep areas that may cause you to slip if you are in flip flops so be careful. Bring some water and a change of clothes if you wanna get wet from the blow hole. Be careful and don't fall in!

Great place to go on a cloudy day! Not much of a hike, but a great place to walk around and take in the amazing views!

Wild rugged and beautiful there’s almost no one else out there if you go in far enough...lava rocks are pretty sharp though so be careful, and sometimes it’s a little hard to see the trail but the views are totally worth it :)

Nice walk. I wouldn’t say it’s moderate but it’s probably rated that way because of the short uphill to get back to the parking lot. The blowhole is small but nice. Beautiful Hawaii views.

Was amazing BEAUTIFUL and full of history

Not really a hike, just a more difficult walk/ billy goating to the blow hole. Great views, unique terrain - the rocks are unusual and fun to look at, blow hole ok.

This hike was our last of the day after a long day on the Road to Hana and all the small hikes it had to offer, so take this review with a grain of salt.

The hike up until the banyan tree was great. Past this the mud was plentiful and SLICK (my camera and I ate it pretty hard) with little to no options to bypass using drier foot paths. We hiked to the bamboo forest and called it a day. I'd do this again on a drier, sunnier day.

Easy hike with great views. Pools were closed due to high waters, but I was still able to get some amazing shots. Parking was $25 so make sure to hit as much as possible while you're here.

Great hike! Very rocky and steep going up and down. Be prepared for a foot and eye coordinated hike. Views are worth it when inconsiderate people aren't pushing past you for a better view. :)
