Nice walk

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.

Just for two or for the whole family to get out & enjoy God's creation! Absolutely Incredible! Memories for a life time.

Too many tourists for my tastes, its great for a run at night, but crowded during the day.

Nice walk but very heavily populated. Beach Walk is actually closed right now (1/23/2017) and the detour takes you along the front of hotels. Not the best beach walk while under construction.

An extremely easy trail with a defined, maintained path that shows gives amazing views of the water from every angle! Don't forget water...

Great walk

It is beautiful. Easy to walk on the trail or along the beach. The only problem is all the people. It is crowded most of the day, but very crowded at sunset. If you like to walk shoulder to shoulder with people it great. You can also practice evasive maneuvers as you work your way around all the people that stop in front of you to listen to time share sales people.

For a social trial go in afternoon evening. If you want to have a more peaceful walk get on the trail early.

Great easy walk. With plenty excitement when 3 whales went by. They seemed to swim very slowly for photo opportunity. Plenty places to get on and off the trail. Perfect for families with little ones.

Resort walking path along the beach. Absolutely beautiful and very easy. Lots of joggers and runners in the early morning. We start out from the Westin Villas at the north end of Kaanapali and ended our walk at the Hyatt. Grab breakfast there and head back. It is not a straight path when you reach the Sheraton. Follow the detour path or just cut through the hotel.

Resort walking path that leads to Black Rock. There are several hotels and shopping areas on this path that make it great for an evening stroll. The views are incredible and the family friendliness of this area is amazing. Black Rock is great for kids snorkeling and adult cliff diving. Writing this makes me want to move to Maui.
