Amazing views from this trail. It’s more of a walk and not really a hike. We went counterclockwise like some other reviews stated and thought the views were amazing. We had kids 9 & 11 with us and did this very easily. Even very young kids,

Must go spot! The views from the trail are amazing. The path down to the blowhole is very rocky and you definitely need good shoes. The views from the bottom are even more spectacular. When we went, the blowhole was not that impressive, but it is dependent on the tides.

The hole was cool to see. It’s Not really a hike, my wife crossed the rocks in her flip flops without much trouble. It’s worthwhile to take the short walk to see the hole close up, but don’t get too close, you may end up swimming with the dolphins!!!

Well worth the trip. Very rocky. Make sure you have good footwear.

Easy loop trail. Do it counterclockwise for better views.

Great little adventure. Really not a hike as a climb down and then back up. You can still enjoy views from the top if you are unable to climb down. I’d suggest good shoes as it is rocky and the dirt can be slippery. Despite the warnings and crosses people were still standing right there next to the hole. Anyways beautiful pictures. Could feel the mist from the ocean. Very very windy. We were all “salty” after we left.

I wouldn’t classify this trail as a ‘hike’ but it is an amazing “must do” if you are in the area. Don’t just park and view from the top - venture down to the blowhole and you feel like you’re on another planet. It’s an easy walk down but maybe not in Flip flops as it’s very rocky and some of the lava rocks are sharp ... Don’t get too close to the blow hole and stay off of the wet rocks. The walk back up is quick and fairly easy! Don’t miss the experience by staying in the parking lot! My daughter recently re-located to Maui for a job and this was a wonderful little adventure we did before her work day began. Extra tip: go early and beat the crowds which makes for better photos!

Steep and rocky in most areas, very rewarding once you reach the blowhole.

Quick and easy trail down for you rock climbers out there. Love me some of that eye to foot coordination. The hike up is a climb but well worth the views, unique rocks and blow hole of course! Second time visiting Maui and this blow hole ❤️

Nice area. Make sure to go on high tide as it won’t “blow” at low tide. Bring lots of water it can get hot and hiking shoes or at least tennis shoes. You can go just to the overlook which is not difficult. But if you climb down be sure to have the right footwear. There are other coves beyond that are really nice as well. Be respectful and do not get near the blowhole. Keep your eye on the sea as I have heard some have been washed away or fallen into the hole.

Short and fairly easy trail down to the Nakalele blowhole. There are a few steep areas that may cause you to slip if you are in flip flops so be careful. Bring some water and a change of clothes if you wanna get wet from the blow hole. Be careful and don't fall in!

Nice walk. I wouldn’t say it’s moderate but it’s probably rated that way because of the short uphill to get back to the parking lot. The blowhole is small but nice. Beautiful Hawaii views.

Not really a hike, just a more difficult walk/ billy goating to the blow hole. Great views, unique terrain - the rocks are unusual and fun to look at, blow hole ok.

Super easy, great views.

Looks like I'm one of the rare clockwise route-takers. Stunning views from this direction as well. Wonder what I missed out from not going counter-clockwise?! Super easy, stunning hike. Highly recommended!

Great hike! Very rocky and steep going up and down. Be prepared for a foot and eye coordinated hike. Views are worth it when inconsiderate people aren't pushing past you for a better view. :)

What parking? It’s all valet

Amazing views. Very rock but worth it!!!! l

Amazing views here.

Short walk to the first beautiful view. Lots of rocks to traverse down to the first blowhole and we kept going to the next one. Fairly easy overall. It was almost Mars-like between the two blowholes, really cool terrain. I’d definitely do it again if I was in the area.

This is a quick little jaunt to a cool view. We were there April 2018 and there were quite a few folks of all ages. You can walk half way, three quarters or all the way next to the blow hole. I was surprised that many of the folks that went all the way down were in flip flops. We had hiking boots which made it easy. We mostly enjoyed the walk back up because we felt like we got some exercise. It was fun but not difficult but worth the excursion. Enjoy!

This is a great walk!

It was a nice short wall for the kids. Thai would not qualify as a hike for my 5 and 6 year old.

Beautiful! Easy hike. Make sure you go counter clockwise.

So great!

Very busy trail, but worth the hassle of so many people. Make sure to check tide charts and go around high tide (+/- 2 hours or so) for best effect. As others have mentioned, I suggest hiking shoes or sturdy sandals, not flip flops.

How could it be anything’s my but 5 stars when you’re running in Maui? Beautiful views and happy faces.
