A wonderland!

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.

Simply stunning.
Permits are difficult to obtain though and you will lucky to get one.
The pre hike talk by the ranger can be a bit daunting too for the inexperienced hiker. You are warned about getting lost and the possibility of an overnight stay until you are found, wildlife, etc.
My better half almost never went but in the end relented.
Think it was the best decision she ever made. Take plenty water and go early to make a day of it.
Also, anything less than a SUV down the 8 mile dirt, potholed road from the interstate to the trailhead is likely to leave you with under carriage damage.

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!

Viewz On viewz On viewz. Not very challenging tho.

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.

Pretty accurate until you get over the sandy hill at the end to get to the wave. Once in lifetime experience!

Incredible views the entire route. Great walk/hike for the entire family.

IMPORTANT: Please read and truly understand every word and the map that is provided with your permit.

Entered Houserock Valley Rd north off 89 via Page. Houserock is washboard rough rd for 7 miles south to parking. SVU is best esp is there has been rain.

Amazing hike but very poorly marked. Use the veridical slot in the mountain as your destination when you turn south. Very easy to miss the fist turn off for the wave trail head off wire pass.

1.5 mile point. As soon as you cross the sandy wash there is a marker post on a dune to head east. Follow that path up the side of the mountain “the saddle” as they call it. Very easy to miss.

From there you will head south bearing to the right along the mountain sides. The wave is in the distance at the base of the coin slot crevasse white mountain.

Maybe a 5 is over zealous but what do I know, it was my first hike!

Great ocean views of the crashing waves. Also some spots where you can climb down close to the water and explore small caves.

The view from this trail is amazing! You can see the waves crashing on the cliffs and you can even find some natural pools and a “secret beach” on its way.

Easy walk, not a very long trail- a good choice if you just want a good breath of fresh salty air. Good mixture of woods and water. Awesome scenery!!! Breathtaking!!!! Calming, serenity!

An easy trail with such an amazing view! I would recommend visiting The Knob to everyone.

A wonderful hike and beautiful geologic feature. While The Wave was the main event for the hike and certainly worth the effort, the out and back hike and wandering around the area is fascinating. The views are endless.

Great trail. Great view. Well worth the walk. Pack sunscreen. We really enjoyed that walk/hike. Walk til the end to the beach.

The Wave is a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Our permits were for late March. The weather was perfect, it drizzled at times which kept the temperature perfect. We didn't use a compass or GPS... probably would've found it faster if we had. It was a rough hike for the non-hiker in the group.

Amazing! Easy hike but be very very careful with navigation, you can get lost easily.

This was a hike that was beautiful and a good workout that ended at one of the most beautiful natural shrines I have seen. A highlight on a trip full of great hikes!

Wonderful hike! Spotted three turtles which made the hike even more fun. Highly recommend this hike.

Definitely a beautiful hike if you can get a permit through the lottery! Went at the end of February 2 years ago and even with the cooler temps, it was still hot. There is no shade so take more water than you think you need!
