Nice quick path down to a beautiful beach where you can watch surfers.

Beautiful hike, parts were a bit muddy in October but as long as you don’t mind a little mud it’s fantastic. Mostly sunny, downhill out and uphill in the way back. Well worth it for the view at the end.

Easy trail but slippery! The waves were big so we didn't get in the water, just walked along the beach.

Hiked down to the most beautiful beach in Kauai! Be careful...slippery!

Don’t go, packed with trash and unruly locals. Avoid

Beautiful beach! The hike is slick and steep, so come prepared to hike down.

beautiful trail, though very short but the beach at the end is amazing

Beautiful small trail with a gorgeous beach at the bottom.

Easy short hike down .. a bit steep
Too rough to swim. Beautiful beach and scenery

Very slick trail today. Saw a few muddy knees and butts from the slides down the trail. Trail not good, but not long and the beach is more than worth it. Rough ocean. Only for experienced swimmers and surfers today.

Wild, expansive, and beautiful.

It was great to see different types of birds in their habitat.

Not really a hike but it is steep and huge roots and ruts on the trail. Beautiful beach not too crowded but it’s getting more traffic of late, boo! Very high tide so not so great for swimming.

Not really a hike. Just park and walk to the lighthouse. If you like history you will enjoy the lighthouse. Beautiful views

Nice walk to a quiet beach. Dry track the day we came down so easy walk, not too slippery. The surf was quite rough, a few people brave enough for a swim, not sure if that is the norm or if it was just a rough day? Beautiful beach with views to the lighthouse.

Worth the short hike to a very pretty beach without a lot of people. The hike definitely could be a little slippery when wet.

Beautiful short walk down to the Secret Beach. It wasn’t raining when we went and therefore wasn’t slippery at all. It’s steep but fairly easy when it’s not raining. The Beach is absolutely beautiful! We wanted to go snorkeling but the ocean was a bit rough at the time. We will definitely come here again!

We saw several species of sea birds and a pod of spinner dolphin walking along this trail. Bring your National Park pass or military ID to save on the entrance fee. And definitely bring a long lens...

A little steep to go down because of the mud, but it is a really nice beach. There is not a lot of people!

Very easy walk. Don't forget to bring your National Park pass like I did.

Wonderful time. Hiking part was fine and our 5 year old made it down and up with some assistance. Beach was great and not crowded. Would recommend.

Awesome beach, clean, easy hike in and out. Be careful of mud if it has been raining but not a hard hike at all...just a little steep. One of my favorite beaches!

This is a great hike! It’s not challenging, but offers some incredible views of the ocean and tide pools. It looked like you could even find some nice places to hang on a beach.

One of our favorites, but it is still closed from the flood damage. 6/10/2018.

The lighthouse isn't the most impressive thing to see or visit. Not worth the $5 to get in.

This is by far my favorite beach anywhere!!
I’m glad you changed the rating from easy to moderate. It’s definitely harder going back up as it’s very steep but very worth the beauty and uniqueness of this beach. Where else can you simultaneously hear the sound of waves and a waterfall?

Not really a hike. You have to pay $5 to get in and gates close at 4. Pretty views, lots of birds, and we saw some dolphins.

Easy hike with cool tide pools at the end. Could be busy, could be the only ones there.
