Very scenic. But more of a path to a destination than a trail.

Cliffs at the end to jump off of if you're a strong swimmer! Other than that great views and accessible for all ages

Five stars because this area has very special meaning for me. My wife and I were married just a short stroll up the hill at the Ritz-Carlton. We enjoyed exploring the coastline here during our stay. And I particularly loved the views across the channel to Molokai...and all the beautiful rainbows!!

An easy hike from the Kapalua Resort down beside the golf course to the interesting Dragon's Teeth outcropping. The rocks are extremely sharp as they are carved by pounding surf, so be careful. Worth a look and takes only about a half hour total out and back.

An easy trail from the resorts to see the large rocks that really do look like teeth! It has awesome views of water crashing against the rocks.

Hey dude, let's name this trail "Dragon's Teeth"
Nawww man...lets name it "Golf Balls"
OOOOHHH MUCH BETTER

Haha but seriously though...Golf Balls?? Why on earth is this trail called Golf Balls instead of Dragon's Teeth??

The geology is gorgeous and is definitely a must-see! I came when it was windy and the waves crashing up against the beautiful rocks was an incredible sight. They totally resemble the teeth of dragons!
