beautiful. best in early am before crowds.

Good easy flat hike. Great views of the ocean. A bit crowded and busy. Park at the Polo Beach parking lot and head north.

It's a very easy walk along the shoreline with a few beaches to stop at for a swim along the way. The walk is mostly flat on a pathway so suitable for almost everyone. We had trouble finding parking on the north end so decided to start the round trip from the south end. I would highly recommend this as there was ample parking on the south side near Polo Beach Park.

Lots to explore is the ponds, to include across the marsh at the Reserve. Plan for 2-3 hrs to really take it all in and appreciate nature. Would be great location for school outing.

Really nice beach, spent a little time and will be back again and perhaps again.

Steep yes, and some locations aren't accessible. Pay attention to the signs.

Happening area, beach and surf is great. Lots to do in the area after appreciating the ocean view.

steep but easy well defined hike (walk) up there; went for sunset; - great view; could see the outline of 4 of the hawaiian islands;

Nice views, but dis only half of it since there are no signs and it is not maintained and at one point we had no clue where to go. We ended up simply enjoying the black sand beach on the north side of the loop.

I've been here many times. It's very nice scenery especially the sunset view. If you want to relax or unwind, I would recommend this.

Loved it just be careful coming down as the dry cinders are slippery. Did the trail in shorts and t-shirt and the bushes were fine - no need for long pants on the day we did it. It was so peaceful up there you could hear people shouting from the beach

Great views, saw whales, lots of sun, benches and access to beaches along the paved pathway. Casual walk lots of people.

Lovely addition to beach walk in the early morning. Lots of birds, very peaceful.

Very busy with lots of other walkers. Great views though.

Nice early morning stroll. not difficult and paved all the way. We had the fortune to spot a whale offshore too!

A very nice walk! Pretty views of the ocean and beaches.

A great trail that is paved for most if not all of the path. Lots of great views of beaches and the nice hotels in Wailea. There are places to stop for water along the way and there is ample parking.

Pretty @ sunset.

Tough trail around the hill. Not an easy go up and down and thin in the tougher areas. Must have good boots and pants or you will get torn up.

Definately not a maintained trail on the beach side for which we came up. The best way to access the top is to take the dirt road about 1/4 mile to the north of the main park entrance road. Park in the small lot by the ocean. Walk back on the road about 100-300 ft or so and access a fairly good trail and keep heading up. It is no longer a loop trail and the ocean side us steep if you decide to complete the loop. Bring your machete! Otherwise just hike in and out from the dirt road.

Pas vraiment une balade en pleine nature mais bon au coucher du soleil c’est sympa quand même

be careful which trail you take, don't do the one on the cinder cones exactly (very loose lava rocks that fall on to the beach and overgrown signs warning you). mostly uncovered so be prepared, beautiful views and combo hike/beach area. part of hike is along little beach, be sure to Google that part

Nice walk along the seashore. Surrounded by beautiful resorts.

I love this simple picturesque walk.
