Went for a quick hike to Queens Bath. Had to wait about 15 minutes to find parking but well worth the wait. Amazing views. Semi crowded, and a steep hike but absolutely worth it!

Like many others have said, parking sucks. If you want to wait in line and get an "upfront" parking spot, you can...or you can further away and walk. The hike down is fairly easy. Large tree roots, and if raining, it will be muddy. The...More

Let’s start with this adventure can be very dangerous. If the waves are big, don’t go. If it’s rainy or just finished raining and you have stability issues, don’t go. For everyone else, enjoy! Maybe sure you were shoes that are secure to your feet...More

My husband and I (65+) have hiked this trail for many years. We wear hiking water sandals and we go very early. We enjoy snorkeling Queen's Bath - the jumpers muddy the water and don't see the fish. That's unfortunate as there are many fish...More

Listen to all previous reviews about accessibility. This is a tough route down and not recommended for anyone who has mobility/balance issues. Wear the correct footwear and take it very slowly, holding onto rocks as much as possible (right where the stream dumps into the...More

Definitely wear sneakers or water shoes. The trail down is tricky but doable if you go slow and are not afraid of getting a little muddy. The landscapes on the trail are beautiful and lush. We saw about ten sea turtles having a blast in...More

It was waaaaay too slippery. I didn’t do my homework and we wore flip flops, and I fell. But even with bare feet it was tough. I agree with other reviewers - wear sneakers and don’t carry anything.

Don’t wear flip flops, don’t bring much to hold, use a walking stick if you can find one, go early for parking and to avoid the rush of people on the trail, and wear dark clothes or clothes you are willing to get stained, and...More

It is not a long hike. The first part is steep and probably muddy. It takes you half way or less to the bottom. The rest of the hike is level across the lava flat along the ocean. It was not bad at all. In fact... More
