Heritage part is what is missing not just on this trail but troughtout island. That being said, the walk out past Shipwreck Beach along ocean is a good walk with some great views. A good way to spend a few hours, and take some water with you. Usually have some ocean breeezes but can get warm and it is more... More

We spent several hours traveling back in time learning about this historic area.....it would be a long walk, a easier bicycle, or in our case a combo of walking and driving

This is a very interesting bunch of sites. I personally would not want to walk the 10+ miles. You can drive to quite of few of the sites, and keep the hiking for when you need it. Download a map and sites on line. Just search for Koloa Heritage Trail.

10 mile, 14 stop tour that tell history of the Koloa/Poipu area. Sort of a scavenger hunt. The map starts at the Spouting Horn, but coming in from the North into Koloa, you can knock out 4 right away, followed by what is listed as #9 off the bypass road. The remaining 9 can be seen with a leisurely drive... More

There are parts of the trail that are paved and accessible from resort areas, but there are parts that are down at the end of a dirt (and pretty Rough) road. The section along by the cliffs has some spectacular views, especially when the winds are up and the waves are crashing against the Cliffs. This trail is actually the... More

I think some of these reviews are for PART of this trail. The full trail is a 10+mile trail that could be walked, but would be quite long. As things should be when visiting Hawaii, it is best to slow yourself down and allow yourself to enjoy what is around you. This is part of the Aloha Spirit, and part... More

When we took this fairly easy walk on a dirt trail, we saw whales, turtles and folks fishing! The views are stunning. Bring plenty of water, wear sneakers or hiking shoes, and watch out for the golfers on a portion of the trail by the golf course.

We started out to see all 14 sites, and had the map they provide. It ended up being sort of a scavenger hunt for the markers....We found them all, but a bit frustrating for my husband. If they would have said, This one is behind the Sheraton, This one is on the Marriott Shoreline, it would have been helpful. All... More
