Hike down to Queen’s Bath is rough. Lots of mud, stepping between tree roots and walking through major puddles. Slipped and fell once, but eventually made it down the trail. Beautiful site to see. Only went because we knew the tides were low. Definitely need to be smart about when to visit. The waterfalls and the bath itself are amazing to see!

Went here solo and left my beloved girlfriend in the car who was recovering from knee surgery. Why is any of this relevant you might ask? Unless you’re in bare minimum decent shape with full range of motion, you have no business even hiking down to the bath in muddy trail conditions. Although it’s only a 15-20 minute hike down from parking area, the trail is treacherous when wet and muddy. Consider slipping and falling multiple times before even getting down to the shoreline. Dry trail conditions make for a much easier hike down to the coast. Pictures will prove my point.
If you make it down to lava rock head left along coast until you arrive at swimming hole. Tides are key element that is most critical when visiting Queens Bath. Try to avoid high tide and shoot for low tide. I arrived several hours before high tide and noticed the difference as the tide rose. The waves will crash over the edge of the rocks knock you down and sweep you out to sea. Bottom line don’t mess around here or you will pay dearly. Accessing the actual pool is towards the seaward side almost near middle of the pool or you can jump in. The trick is to either get out of pool and stand back completely at higher tides or access pool and avoid getting sucked out as waves recede. Definitely have your ship together here and do not attend drunk or stoned. One misstep along the rocky ledge edge and you’re a statistic.

Wet and muddy going down but totally worth it. But wear shoes and not sandals! A hiking stick is also a must. Be sure to go far to the left at the bottom to see ALL the pools. Turtles swimming everywhere!

We drove to Princeville to see this, but there is no access unless you own a home, timeshare or are renting there. There is also no parking and it is all private property. Don't bother heading here unless you know someone who lives in the area that will let you walk through their home.

It was worth getting muddy for this view...Very limited parking - Not a very long hike down, but if muddy I recommend wearing footwear & clothing you don't mind getting dirty! I do not recommend wearing flip flops or bare feet, very slippery specially if it recently rained. Watching the waves crash over the rocks was amazing!

The path down to this island extremity is very, very, very muddy. Be prepared to get dirty after grappling around roots, mud puddles and slippery claylike earth. For your trouble you will be blessed with the most amazing sights and a sense that a wonderful society and culture enjoyed this spot well before you journeyed there. Enjoy!

Tried to see this a couple of times, but access is in an upper class residential area and they obviously don't want the tourists parading thru the area.
No parking signs (and eyes to enforce it) are everywhere.
A large no trespassing sign is at the access to the path.
We were unable to see it.

BE AWARE....trail is very steep, muddy and dangerous if you're not careful. You are basically going down a steep embankment and there is very little to hold on to. Wear good shoes and bring a swimsuit if you plan to jump in. The surf was very high and pretty dangerous in the water when we went. We watched a guy almost get taken into the ocean. This is a tough trail but if you can make it, worth the view.

This is not a safe place to go due to sneaker waves. Be cautious and choose another destination. There is a sign at the start with the number of deaths due to drowning listed.

This is a cool place to visit but you must embrace the mud going down the trail to get there. The rock formations are really interesting with wonderful views. The trail was somewhat easier going up.
