AllTrails really needs to revisit this one. There is very little trail, most of it is a walking path along the golf course. On the 14th hole I had to make a detour as there is a land development underway and there is also a new water hazard that does not show on the AllTrails map. The biggest disappointment about this one is that the golf course is closed to any kind of walking traffic when play is in motion. The only way to complete this course is to hike it about 2Hrs before sun rise or after sun set otherwise the course marshals will advise you that the course is closed to walkers and you are requested to leave which I completely understand.

There are a few really nice views of the well groomed golf course along with some very interesting trees along the walk. I managed to complete 6.1 miles of the course and think if I had been able to complete the rest of the course it may have come in around 8 plus miles.

This one is a nice walk but I rated this as a one start based on the restrictions of access and out of date map.

I do this hike every time I stay at Turtle Bay. It is quiet, not frequently used, and a good place to hear yourself think while hiking. At times you have to cross the golf course so be mindful of golfers. Ocean views nice for that part of the hike. Not a hard at all but varied scenery. Will be back this fall and will definitely be out hiking all over Turtle Bay.

It is actually called Kuilima, not Kulima. Gorgeous place. Just hope it doesn't get spoiled by more development because it is absolutely beautiful. Keep the country country.
