Lots of tourists, lost the path a bit a few times, but plenty of places to stop (shop, restaurants, bathroom, beach) along the way for those who want to.

Great walking trail along the beach. We liked that we could go back and forth from walking on the beach and the board walk. Not a hiking trail, but a beautiful scenic path.

Fun and easy flat walking trail mostly on the boardwalk next to the ocean; signs show you where to go when it veers away from that.

Not really a 'trail', but a lovely morning walk through my favorite place on the planet.

This is a great walk along mostly beach. It is a board walk with some paved portions thru hotels and cottages. The “Beach Walk” sign show you where to go when the trail wanders away from the beach. There are several spots to access the beach or to switch to walking on the beach if you prefer. I enjoyed the sights, the hotels and restaurants and the friendly people along the trail.

Awful trail, great beach. The trail behind many expensive resorts which otherwise block public access to the beach. The beach is not passable at high tide so you’d have to use the boardwalk which seems to be owned by the hotels. And felt oddly uninviting.

more of a walk than a hike, and a lot of it veers inland away from the beach. Not much shade, so wear sunscreen and take water. Can't beat the scenery.

Walked this trail at 6:30 a.m. with a large group of folks with varying ages all the way to Black Rock and back to the Ka’anapali Beach Club. Running or walking shoes are recommended. Mostly exposed to the sun but for a few stretches of shade from trees, so definitely wear a hat and other protective wear if you’re sensitive to the sun. Enjoy views of the resorts along the trail, ocean, beach, and take in all that fresh island air.

I walked this trail from the south end. It actually continues farther south than the map indicates - to a total of about 3.5 miles one way, 7 miles round trip. I walked to the northern end and then a little farther through the village where I had a nice dinner at Fish Market Maui, then walked back. It took me about 2.5 hours, including half an hour for dinner. The trail is paved, well marked and completely flat. It gets a bit confusing at times where it goes through resorts and intersects with other walkways. I had to reference the map a couple of times. Overall very pleasant and I feel like I have earned my dinner.

This is a perfect route for a walk or jog and to travel between the south and north sides of Black Rock.
