If you are looking for a quiet walk with great ocean views, as well as a bit of a La Jolla feel, this may be your answer. Also the cool breeze on a hot day is nice.

Make sure you are not confusing this with the Coastal Trail (which is lovely!) As others have mentioned, this is in the woods across the highway leading into the resort. Lots of hills (which we normally do) but not so pretty scenery. We also found...More

These trails are beautiful, and on the old Kapalua Village Golf Course (I wish they'd reopen it). Some good hills, so a very worthwhile workout!

There is an approximately 3 miles walking/hiking trail in Kapalua. It’s right on the ocean and the views are stunning. Very convenient if you are staying near the Ritz or Montage but also worth a drive if you have time.

Great trail with lots of flowers, plants, birds, wildlife, and a pond. Take bread to feed the ducks and fish in the pond at the top. Start the trail at the village center below the driving range. You might have to ask directions to the...More

Pros: Good cardio workout on an uncrowded mostly paved trail which will give you the sense of what walking through a jungle is like. Cons: You’ll be hot and humid (at least if you hike in June) and sweat buckets. You’ll be frustrated trying to...More

Awesome hike across an abandoned golf course that has been over run by the jungle! Some difficult parts with beautiful lush scenery! Highly recommend! Must do! Free parking.

We did the lake loop which was about 3.5 miles and we gained an elevation of 59 stories. We parked at Kapalua Village Center and then followed the signs. We went to the right when we started. There was a variety of flowering trees, bamboo,...More

This is a good walk with some elevation change. We found that the upkeep of the trails has diminished, but they are still good for a brisk and free walk.
