Easy hike for all ages. Nice walk by the beach. WE got to see a seal sunbathing and a turtle by the shoreline.

Easy for kids, people do horse riding so kids like to see the horses too. Banyan tree is beautiful at the end.

Nice walk to the banyan tree. Me and my husband did this walk back in 2010 but now there’s a quicker way to get to the tree if your short on time.

There was one really cool banyan tree that was large but other than that one there were only a couple other banyan trees. Kinda underwhelming but it looked like a great place to mountain bike

Great easy walk through some beautiful shaded forest and trail along shoreline. Banyon trees at the end are awesome! They have been in a bunch of Hollywood movies.

Great walk with younger kids with great views of the ocean. Watch for overnight rain as the back portions can get muddy.

Sweet easy stroll along a gorgeous shoreline. Trail shared with hoses and their poop. Banyan tree is otherworldly.

I loved walking and jogging this trail, it is flat and plenty of trees for shade, I love looking out over the bay while running this path. However beware of theft in this area. We parked right actress from the fruit market on the road outside the tree and were only gone from our car a half hour and someone broke our window and stole our snorkel gear, it was a rental car and they say rental cars are targeted. DONT leave anything in your car!!!

the path is super short and easy to find. the trees are beautiful but other than that, the only cool thing there is walking a bit further to the beach or left to the pillbox

This walking path is short and dirty, lots of trash! We were also treated so rudely by locals with houses in the bay. Was not a pleasant experience.

Since Turtle Bay is a resort, the trails are less “hiking trails” and more “walking paths;” fairly short, designed for quick out and back walks that don’t chew up too much of your vacation time and get you back to places where you can spend money as soon as possible.
