Very mellow path that passes by a barn. A bit sandy at times.

Beautiful trail across the coast, little sandy in some spots. Views are amazing and well worth the trip. Lots of side trails and loops to make the trail longer if you like. Will do it again!

Stick to the trail and you’ll be fine! The point has you walking through sand and also through sea rocks.

Great little trail for kiddos. Alternate approaches to get to the point. Woods or beachside.

Lots of different paved and unpaved routes to complete this trail, best to stick close to the beach and take it all the way to the end! Beautiful views, highly recommended! Easy for kids

Easy walk along the shoreline, mostly beach but there is also a nature trail along the side you can take. It was an overcast day so the sun wasn't an issue and there was a very nice breeze. We took our time exploring all of the little tide pools so it took us about an hour and a half with a quick break at the end.

Walked to the point on the beach, was a Monk seal sleeping at the point. We had a nice spot to have our lunch, saw a couple of whales?? at a great distance. We took a trail just inland of the beach which was easier to walk on, overall an enjoyable walk.

Pleasant beach and trail walk that goes as far as you want it to. We went 2 or 3 times as far as this path. It is dotted with beautiful rocky points, little picnic areas, some shade but not a lot, and a few stretches where you have to walk in the deep sand. We saw a monk seal, lovely shore birds, and not many people.

Great coastal exploration. Saw two monk seals, fab bonus. Wind was wild and loved standing at the point leaning into it. Sunset was a little clouded in. Nice and quiet later in the day. Chance to appreciate where we were. Northern most tip of O’ahu.

It was a really hot and humid day so we didn’t finish the whole thing. The kids were getting sticky. We did see a seal so that made it worth all the sweat!

Beautiful walk with several paths to choose from. Saw a mum and pup Hawaiian Monk seal at the protected area. There are marked trails and signage along the way - I took a wrong turn I believe on the path, but found my way back. Brought extra clothes and slippahs for the beach afterwards.

Lovely trail along the water, sporting views of the surf and the golf course. It was sprinkling when I went so I was cool enough but could get very warm in the straight sun. Bring a pair of flops in your backpack so you can dip your toes without fear of rocks.
