Beautiful! It was like walking on another planet!

Great trail, well defined... walking on the rocks through part of it was difficult at times. Trail was mostly flat, easy to find and beautiful. Portapoties were available at the beginning of the hike in the parking lot.

Great to do once because of its unique landscape but not returning....too hot.

Not at all what we expected to see on an island. Just like others have stated the lava rock makes you feel like your on another planet. Hike was definitely moderate, just wear good shoes and watch your footing. Waves were huge today and the sunset was awesome. So many different things to see along this stretch.

This hike is different. It's not you typical walk on the beach. It feels like you are on a different planet. Make sure you pack heavy-duty hiking boots or sandals. Brings a lot of water and enjoy history of how the earth was born.

We did the branch of the trail to the lighthouse and back. At a moderate pace with stops it took us just under two hours. Parts of the trail are large loose rocks so proper shoes are a must. This shoreline hike has a mix of trees and open lava rock fields. You will want to head out early when it is cooler. Luckily we had a light breeze to help keep us cool. We enjoyed butterflies along the beaches and caught a glimpse a few wild goats.
