Be careful leaving valuables in your car - this is a high theft area!!!! Bathrooms located at the Waianae side, back up at the beach some mile east of Mokuleia's parking lot.

Nice hike, flat all the way. No cardio. Beautiful view of the ocean & the rocky lava beach

Be sure to bring plenty of water and sunscreen as it is exposed to the sun the entire way. Mostly flat but beautiful hike. We also saw a monk seal relaxing on the beach!

It’s a nice a nice walk ...if you need extra adventure, try heading up the mountain towards the pillboxes.

Beautiful hike. There is no shade at all so it definitely gets hot I suggest to go early and bring lots of water! At the end you go into the bird sanctuary and at the end there are lots of tide pools. It’s gorgeous.

Awful! 3 break ins during daylight and one couple was only away for 30 mins! We ended up leaving after seeing the damage people were doing! Didn’t feel safe at all! The drive made us feel like we were in a 3rd world country is was so gross and run down!

Easy but hot. Open space with no trees or spots for shades. Need lots of water, hat and sunglasses. Kid friendly but not too exciting. Rewarding at the end.
Parking easy but high warnings with thefts of personal and/or valuables from parked vehicles. Near-by beach is refreshing after the hike. Waves and current are both very strong.

We found it easy as it was pretty flat. Great views. Gorgeous coastline. Saw whales, seals and nesting albatrosses. Don’t forget sunscreen/protection!

I have to say this is the best trail that I have ever had from the perspective of efficiency. You just walk on a level surface for 3 hours and the view is breathtaking.

Great hike directly next to the ocean. We reached the point by sunset and watched the sun go down on a coral shell beach sitting next to two sunbathing monk seals. Incredible!! The hike back in the dark wasn’t challenging but you’ll definitely need flashlights or a sufficiently charged phone.
