Nice hike! Used to hiking the rocky mountains so was an elevation gain but nothing too crazy. Still got in a great workout though. Beautiful views. Took us just a little over an hour up (with picture stops) and about 45 down. Could be muddy if it rained but wasn’t bad for us.

Very good trail. Awsome view. Bring water and good shoes. I’m a medium level sport fan and found it hard but finished it happy

Super short and easy paved trail. Drive to the park is scenic. Parking costs $5. Park just outside the gates to save cash. Iao needle is pretty neat and the creek is cool as well. Good for a short little visit.

Second time to do it! It was a windy and cloudy day with lots of mud from yesterday’s raining I guess. It’s nice to enjoy the view during the hiking. It’s absolutely a must-do in Maui if you love to workout a little bit

great unique lava water ledge hike to an amazing blowhole and cool heart shaped lookthrough

I think it’s a very nice and short one. Easy to take good pictures. No need to bring water or snacks just your phone is required. I even saw people wearing sandals on the trail. Just come and spend 1 hour and it’s worth it!

Lovely trail, excellent views. The most challenging aspect of it is the elevation gain, but if you have a lot of hiking experience, I definitely wouldn't rate it as moderate. It's a good trail for less experienced individuals or those just getting into hiking!

Very nice trail. Wonderful scenery, view on the ocean so blue.

Easy. Nice

Fairly easy rock hoping to get down and up, kids and seniors were n the trail. So, yes pretty easy. The blow hole and heart rock were cool to see, the heart rock was smaller than I thought. The blow hole is pretty easy to get great pics with.

Great spot near Lahaina! The blowhole is really cool and there’s a heart shaped rock down near the blowhole to get photos with. Very cool! I saw a lot of people wearing flip flops. I would highly recommend wearing tennis shoes or hiking shoes/boots as there’s no “trail”. It’s just pathways with rocks and down toward the blowhole the rocks get wet and are very slippery!!! Pretty steep going back up as well. Spectacular views!! Try to get there early as this is probably the most popular spot along this highway. We got there around 8am and it was perfect, by the time we left around 10am the place was packed and no parking available!

Loved this trail! It was mostly flat but navigating through the lava beds created a great workout. The olivine pools were beautiful, as was the rugged coastline. Make sure to take the spurs off the main trail to see the rugged, but gorgeous, cliffs along the ocean. A bit of rock scrambling on the spurs, but well worth it. Also there was a special viewing of some wildlife. I did not think the trail was as hot and sunny as stated, but I would recommend a hat and sunscreen.

More challenging than described . Disappointed with the final lookout.

Nice little trail, steep and rocky but easy enough to navigate even in sandles. Try the coconut water from the guy selling at the top delicious and refreshing. Blowhole and heart shaped gap in the rocks is cool for pictures. High tide is best for seeing the blow hole

Nice relatively short hike. It gets pretty muddy so I'd recommend good shoes (probably not sandals). I'd bring hiking poles for the way down if you have them but definitely not necessary. It took about an hour to get to the top and over an hour coming back down. I went in the morning and the peak was covered in clouds (and rain) but it cleared up by the time I got back to the bottom. It was still a beautiful hike on the way up despite the clouds at the end. If you're lucky enough to have a clear day, the views should be spectacular. Oh and a bonus if you're planning to call a ride share service for the ride back to town: nearly the entire trail has cell coverage.

Nice little hike. Getting up and down is not challenging, but it is not for people in sandals either. Bring a camera and RESPECT THE SAFETY SIGNS.

Get there early (before 9) to beat the crowds. Would recommend tennis shoes the trail was wet and steeper than I had expected with sharp rocks.

So fun! So worth the end the heart is almost to the bottom. I suggest if your going with someone let It be a surprise. My husband and I thought it was in a different hike and it was such a fun surprise!

No good for a trail run. First mile is nice and smooth, couples of beaches and trees along the way. Then rolling rocks for the entire trail. Easy to hurt yourself. The kind of trail to wear down your hiking boots.

Tough hike but beautiful

Gorgeous colors, breathtaking views. Small black sand beach where you can take a dip, as well as areas to camp (permit required). Was a bit crowded on the beach, but the trail was great. Must see!

Really fun trail and has beautiful views. Went on morning hike and it was raining the entire hike up. No views on the way up. Just rain and clouds, but the hike was still fun! Very slippery b/c much of the ground is either red clay, rock or both. It can also be very muddy. The path can be both straight or winding; uphill and downhill; muddy and rocky. My downhill trek had more views because the clouds were dispersing. I almost ran back to the top, but the summit still had no visibility. Heading downhill in the wet conditions was tough. Take your time and be careful because some parts are narrow. Was able to see the waterfalls and river on my descent. Beautiful hike with benches at vista points along the way.

The blowhole is amazing when the tide is up. The mile trail from mile marker 38 is great. As you get close to the shore you feel like you’re on another planet. Don’t miss doing this trail. Wear good shoes.

Wow wow wow! A must in Maui. Breathtaking, humbling views. We went on some pretty cool hikes on the island but this was the most amazing. It is more challenging but very doable for many fitness levels. Wear good shoes though!

Beautiful coastal views! During hide tide there are view small blowholes. While the trail is wide and flat, closed toed shoes are a must. The ground is lose stone and lava.
