My wife and I stayed at the Montage, Kapalua bay and went jogging most mornings along the Kapalua Coastal Trail. Really beautiful. You pass several sandy beaches with very few visitors. Stunning landscape with the sandy beaches, the lava hills and the blue ocean.

This trail is so beautiful. The beaches and surrounding areas are so pretty. Pictures don't do it justice. This is a good activity to enjoy that is free and enjoyable. It was really hot closer to noon so a early morning hike would be better....More

You could be taking pictures all day long as you travel around this beautiful Island. Lots of oohs and aahs and clicks of the camera

Very nice walking trail, equally enjoyable in the morning or in the evening to watch sunset. Park someplace away from public parking, it's crazy. There are facilities at the beginning of the trail, bring water and camera.

This is an easy paved trail along beautiful beaches. It's a bit too hot during the middle of the day but makes for a lovely stroll early in the morning or late afternoon

Great walk from Kapalua with a stop at the Ritz for lunch. The trail is mostly easy but I would recommend more than just flip flops and it is not suitable in parts for older people or the less physically able.

We found the trail after snorkeling at Kapalua Bay. Walk the path north then head out on the trail we hiked all the way to Fleming beach. The kids loved hiking climbing on the rocks!

Sneakers should be fine. The first part of the trail is suitable for all ages. There are some moderate hills if you venture out a little further.

Previous answers provide good guidance. I can only add that my wife had total knee replacement last September which healed perfectly. While there in March, she was actually more agile--and less concerned--walking the trail... More
