Get a new perspective on life under the sea with this adventure, which includes a clear kayak ride and a snorkeling trip. You'll head out to Makena Landing Park in Wailea, where you'll get to spot all sorts of local life, including coral and fish; if you're lucky, you might even see a sea turtle.

Nice trails to follow but scenery can become fairly monotonous after a while. Nice walk and exercise.

Nice area to hike and get away from heat when you need a break. Very easy trails, though always good shoes recommended.

This was a great hike although slightly more difficult than was anticipated at the outset. Most peoople that we saw(which was few and far between) were very friendly, but mostly it was us hiking up and down a 6 mile trail on the side of Haleakala, It is beautiful up there for sure.

My partner and I hiked the Kahakapao Trail yesterday, February 13, 2019. There are trees and foliage down all along the trail as a result of a major wind storm last Sunday. Trail conditions gets worse the further you are from the parking lot with big sections of the trail completely covered by downed trees and foliage. At one point we had to climb over several downed trees that were on a steep slope that looked like it might slide at any time. We saw evidence that they have started to work on clearing the trail, but it will be a huge job!

On a very windy day, we decided to skip the beach and try this hike. The directions to the trail outlined in the prior post from Bob S, are very good. The trail is about .5 miles from parking lot. The sign says 6.2 miles for the loop, but we got more like 5.5 miles. We are in decent shape and it took about 2 hours to do the hike. It’s a relatively easy meandering trail. You can’t go too fast as the mud makes it slippery. Honestly, it is a very pretty setting, but kind of monotonous. There are no waterfalls or beautiful views. Take note that it’s about 15 degrees cooler than at sea level. For bike riders, there are lots of obstacle courses and bike trails. If you need a break from the beach, and want to burn off a mai tai, give this hike a try.
