Trail shared by Nick Wilder

A short, pretty run with some of the better snorkeling on Maui.

Overview

While just a short trail, this traverses some of the best snorkeling access on the island.

Runner Notes

Too short for a run, but a great place for a swim/snorkel/run combo!

Description

From the parking area, head to the rocky black sand beach. This has the easiest swim/snorkel entry in the area, but the trail continues around the point for another couple tenths of a mile.

It ends at what was literally once a garbage dump. It's now cleaned up, but in its day, it must have been garbage heaven! The snorkeling here is excellent though getting in and out can be tough since there's no real beach.
