Excellent workout and great views of coastline.

The road is open to bicycles and hikers per Andrew molera state beach ranger January 2018.

Nice and quiet is definitely right. Beautiful scenery. Trail needed a little upkeep.

A little muddy but so worth it, the waterfall pool is awesome!

Nice moderate hike to a great overlook of the area.

On a Wednesday we only saw 3 other people, which was great. Turned around at Highway 101, but stopped to see Devil's Cauldron Overlook and to trek Elk Trail. It's nice that the beach is so close to the trailhead - there is a short path to it after you cross the suspension bridge.

Quick hike with a little bit of everything. Definitely want to return in summer to see how it changes

I’ll be back! Good hike that wore my dog out! Look forward to fishing the lake when ice melts.

Amazing views.

took the fire tower trail up and 9/10 of the way up 2 ppl from our group turned around because it was very steep and icy. 4 of us made it past the ice. if your not the most experienced I recommend the ridge trail. the ridge trail also had better views. top of the fire tower was amazing.

Amazing hike with great views. Plenty of beaches as you keep going.

nice shady walk. came right up to the herd of horses eating in the Mesquite grove. very cool.

We did the loop trail. It was beautiful! There's a waterfall, river, lake, wildlife, plants and countless scenic views!

next time I'll make sure to get permit to do the whole coast
wow!

Just an okay hike. Definitely recommend walking in instead of driving, the road was awful and had huge holes/ravines when I went in January. Not that impressive of a waterfall but a nice hike for an afternoon.

Alrighty. Humping it in from Ha’ena Beach Park, hiked it to the end which accordingly is 12 miles, but the miles felt really long. The first 6.5 miles is mostly in the jungle with the occasional appearances on the cliff ledge near the water. Mind you majority of the hike is on the ledge. If camping comes to mind going or coming back, you can camp at mile 2, mile 6, and at the end of the trail. Anyways, when you get to Crawler’s Ledge, just before mile 7, is where it opens up and the views get better. Be prepared to hear the helicopters the entire hike. Just before you descend to the beach, there’s a Kalalau sign and just to the left you get slapped with another amazing view. It’s a great hike. Just remember to stop then look. It can be slick along the trail so mind your step. Plenty of streams along the way, so replenish your water sources (filter). Fruit trees scattered about at the end and a waterfall as well to clean up and replenish your water sources. If you have extra food you don’t need, pass it on to some of the folks that stay camped out at Kalalau Beach. Enjoy!

If you start at sunrise it offers shade
We saw a rattlesnake and some cottontail bunnies
Nice for the whole family
May want to mountain bike next time
