I found this trail to be easy, though it's rated moderate, it was a beautiful trek along the ocean to the northwestern Ka'ena Point. At the end we went down to the rocks and happened upon 2 lounging sea lions and got into the water a bit further away, as we didn't want to disturb them. It was a beautiful long hike that I would definitely do again.

A nice flat hike along the beach to the point. It's a hero road so rough and rutted in places, especially the first mile. And there's the occasional keep. It's plenty hot so bring water and prepare for some soft sand at the point. Good distance though and great views of Albatross at the point. Also a good place to get wet.
