We covered this trail compromised of concrete sidewalks, a dirt and lava single track, & some steps to boot five of our seven days in Napili. The 6:00 a.m. runners & walkers were polite & friendly. We witnessed multiple rainbows, a couple warm downpours, & generally gorgeous coastal views.

This a great walk on a cliff along the coast. The views are stunning and there is parking at the furthest entrance to the trail.

Though I've been to this Kapalua area numerous times, it was my first time walking this entire trail. It is BEAUTIFUL and EXCELLENT! The entire trail takes you through many different levels and terrain. If you are in decent shape and can handle natural trails that can be tricky at times, this is a trail for you. It's not at...

We experienced the beautiful Maui coastline on foot via this well-marked trail. The views of the ocean are spectacular. Note that along limited portions of the trail, it narrows down to single-file due to low but dense foliage on both sides. Kudos to Maui for taking such good care of this natural habitat.

An easy trail, among the lava rock, that follows the coast line. Waves crashing, a turtle or two or three, views of Lanai & Molokai ... beautiful & peaceful!

We discovered this trail at least 10 years ago and try to hike it at least once each visit. You can access it on either end but parking can be a problem at the southern entrance as there is also a nice beach there. Most of the trail fronts RC condos and is paved. But, once you round the point... More

We were staying in Kapalua Villas in Maui so our starting spot for the trail was near there, at Oneloa Beach. We then went to the left as far as we were allowed. What an amazingly beautiful walk. The second time we did the trail, we wore our suits, water shoes(!) and brought a set of snorkeling gear. There is... More
