  • The walk was beautiful as was the view. It had all types of terrain and was generally pretty easy to follow. The only reason to complain was the grass which was quite untrimmed at the end of the trail...  more »
  • The trailhead is at DT Fleming Beach park and very easy to find. This hike has so much to offer - it's like you're walking through many different eco-systems. There is so much to see. And it's a good ...  more »
  • Sweeping views of Lanai and Molokai, glad we made the effort. Kapalua has surreal views of several islands and it's paradise!  more »

  • Nice hike. We went about 2 hrs out and then turned back. The Guava grove was fantastic. A warning about the mud. No rain the day we went but there had been some the day before. As a result it was really mucky once we got onto the private land. Could avoid it at some points but we were walking ankle-deep a couple times.
  • Decent hike with fairly gentle elevation change. Starts through what looks like cane, moves up past the golf course, down into a gully before some stone steps take you up into the hills on. I'd avoid during or after a heavy rain. We didn't make it all the way due to time, you get a couple of views back down to the ocean but mostly you're under the canopy. My advice: COVER UP! My wife and I got bad bites on our exposed legs, I don't normally react to mosquito bites but these itched like hell and have lasted over a week which makes me think they may something else like chiggers.
  • Very underrated hiking trail starting from DT Fleming’s Beach. We did about 4 miles and it was beautiful. The trail could use a little maintenance but it’s part of the experience.
  • Easy to access and great start to the hike ( about 30-45mins). Beware that the previous tree “tunnel” seen in some pictures appears to have collapsed on the trail. But it can be carefully walked over. Then we hit a very dense underbrush section of the trail and not sure how long it went on as we turned around after 10 mins of swimming through 10ft tall grass. With the right prep and clothing we probably would have continued.
  • Great place to run in the morning.
