There really isn’t a trail. You walk along The golf course and have some access to tide pools as well as a small private beach near the lighthouse. It was raining all day, but we were able to have a scenic walk without getting muddy. Also the golf course was empty so we didn’t have issues with being on the cart path or green.

Not really a “hikers” trail. Not bad. Good views. We went off the “trail” several times. Quite a bit of resort property and golf course runs. Ok but not a real trail.

Technically not a trail. Walk thru Marriott property then end up on golf course with clear signage letting peds know they shouldn't be on cart path. As a golfer I agree and recommend people not walk there.

we took the path to the golf course and it was a beautiful view back to the Bay. We walked around the hotel past the infinity pool and then went to follow the shoreline access sign, however it had been grown in with plants and guinea grass and was inaccessible to get down to the beach. Watch out because it drops off and if you miss step you will fall down the edge.

Leisurely walk on Marriott property along beach, uphill through cliff housing and through golf course to shoreline access area. Very rocky, beat tide pools to explore. Didn't head all the way down coast to beach or lighthouse.

Not well marked. Bring your GPS enabled device. Beach, shops, resorts, golf course, lighthouse. Fun walk!

It's alright for exercise. Not well marked and goes through a golf corse and a construction site. Some good views and tide pools.

Nice combination of shoreline access and golf course views. The small lighthouse is a short walk across the putting green.

Nice scenic walk along the Kalapaki Beach promenade at the Marriott and the Pali Kai cliff and Kauai Lagoons golf course above. Beautiful sculptures and well maintained properties with a few dining options. Kalapaki beach is great for swimming, surfing and paddle boarding. Park at Anchor Cove by ABC or in the Marriott beach access parking lot. Pictures uploaded from morning and evening strolls I tracked.
