Scenic wildland beach park characterized by prominent cinder cone Puu Olai and large white sand beach. Swimming during calm seas, bodysurfng, board surfng, shore fishing, and beach- related activities. No drinking water. CAUTION: Shore break can be dangerous.

Nice early morning stroll. not difficult and paved all the way. We had the fortune to spot a whale offshore too!

A very nice walk! Pretty views of the ocean and beaches.

A great trail that is paved for most if not all of the path. Lots of great views of beaches and the nice hotels in Wailea. There are places to stop for water along the way and there is ample parking.

Tough trail around the hill. Not an easy go up and down and thin in the tougher areas. Must have good boots and pants or you will get torn up.

Definately not a maintained trail on the beach side for which we came up. The best way to access the top is to take the dirt road about 1/4 mile to the north of the main park entrance road. Park in the small lot by the ocean. Walk back on the road about 100-300 ft or so and access a fairly good trail and keep heading up. It is no longer a loop trail and the ocean side us steep if you decide to complete the loop. Bring your machete! Otherwise just hike in and out from the dirt road.

be careful which trail you take, don't do the one on the cinder cones exactly (very loose lava rocks that fall on to the beach and overgrown signs warning you). mostly uncovered so be prepared, beautiful views and combo hike/beach area. part of hike is along little beach, be sure to Google that part

Nice walk along the seashore. Surrounded by beautiful resorts.

I love this simple picturesque walk.

Trail has a sign that says it's closed.

not pet friendly, not kid friendly, not moderate. it was steep, slippery, overgrown. it was an incredible view and the real hikers enjoyed it but it is not for the average person and on a sunny day would be bruttle.

so beautiful and just a good walk to get away for a few.

Not found

Short hike in return for the amazing view. Can verify that the side of the hill close to little beach is steep and has loose rock. Would only recommend going up that side for experienced hikers. It is not maintained so the trail gets a little spotty in some spots. Definitely worth checking out though.

Beautiful at sunset and very easy! Nice view of all the fancy resorts too.

Nice way to burn some calories. Beautiful views.

Some beautiful views of the ocean from the boardwalk, definitely the high rent district on Maui. Fun to walk by the hotels, check out the pools. Great stop on way back from Makena Beach on your way back to the west end.

Have been here twice; both times accessed via Makena (Big Beach); the coolest part is hiking up and over the volcanic separator between Makena and Little Beach. The locals are protective of their turf, so no gawking and respect their privacy. Little Beach frames the northwest side of Maui nicely, makes for some beautiful shots. A hangout for free spirits.

The trail to the top is very thin and hard to find. A lot of loose rock/dirt and very steep in places. Beautiful views from the lower coastal part of the trail.

This is no longer a marked trail in the state of Hawaii, on the island of Maui. You are allowed to
hike it IF you can find the trail, but bottom line, this has not been a certified hike on Maui for the past 3 years. If you can find the trail you can hike it but it has been closed due to injury and fire/rescue people getting tired of all the inexperienced hikers having to be rescued. I repeat this is NO LONGER A MARKED TRAIL IN THE STATE OF HAWAII, ON MAUI.
