I was told by several people not to do this hike to Queens bath. Well we didn't listen. The hike was interesting because the trail was pretty muddy. We used our hiking sticks which made it much easier not to slip and fall, which someone...More

Do not go down to the baths without researching the tides and level of surf! With the right conditions it’s wonderful. Some slippery mud on the path going down - a stick really helped me (73-year-old woman), but our granddaughters age 9 & 13 had...More

This was just awesome. There's very little parking, so you may need to drive a bit from the golf course (15 dollars) or pay someone to use their driveway near the trailhead. There are two trails, the marked one that is gentle, but very muddy,...More

Make sure that you go at the right time. It can be dangerous at high tide. Very limited parking. There are three pools. Queen’s bath is the third.

We arrived at the parking area around 8am. The few spots were already taken but we waited 5 minutes and got a spot. The hike down was an adventure but very manageable. We followed the path down to the base of a waterfall that spilled...More

Can’t believe how awesome this was. Crowded but awesome. It’s not recommended unless you have WATER SOCKS. Also the trail is definitely eroded so if it’s raining go at your own risk. Unbelievable views and safe at low tide. Not worth the risk at high...More

It's fun to visit this site because it is so unique. The trail head is in Princeville along the north shore. The hike down can be a little tricky. I wouldn't try it after a heavy rain. Trail is heavily rutted from soil being washed...More

First it needs to be point out the path to Queen’s Bath is an adventure in itself and if you don’t care about how you look afterward, you could enjoy it 😋! I’ve seen a dozen footages about this place. Every of them looked unbeliveable....More

There is a small parking lot by the trail head but it was packed when we went on a Thursday morning. You can pay $15 to park at the nearby golf course (about .25 mile walk to trail head). We were frustrated with this but...More

Located in a rich residential area, parking is very limited. I arrived at 4pm and the parking was full, you have to wait in line until someone leaves. My partner and I made friends with the locals there and we were lucky that they offered...More

I found it easier going back up especially with breaks along the way. By that time, you embrace the mud because there is no way around it. Going down is harder because you A) naturally try to ease around the mud at first... More

We were there in Early April, so the seas are rougher, so we did not swim in it, but I'm sure some people are up for it now.
