Likely In-Season!
Another short but rewarding hike on HI340. If you are heading from the Lahaina area (and really, if you are out this way, who isn't?) it will be on the ocean side in between the Nakalele Blowhole and Olivine Pools. There is minimal parking, which is surprising given the sweeping views of the Pacific. There is also a paved overlook area if you do not feel like meandering down the trail.

At the trailhead a sign states that the loop is 1.2 miles in length; as well as showing an interpretation of the trail. I got a slightly longer distance on my GPS by a few tenths of a mile. The trail itself meanders through tall grass until it reaches a pretty nifty overlook of the surrounding ocean. There isn't much to say about the trail other than in this case, it is definitely more about the destination than the journey.

Be sure to follow the signage and respect the cliffs. Any slippage would certainly land you in the newspaper talking about how another tourist perished doing something stupid.
