The trail was once an ancient Hawaiian walking path reserved for royalty. In 1824, sections of the trail were reconstructed, and the road took on a structure that remains untouched to this day. The trailhead for Hoapili (also known as the “King’s Highway”) is in the parking lot of La Perouse Bay snorkeling area, 3.1 miles past the First Entrance to Big Beach. To find the trail, drive south on Makena Alanui Road until the it dead-ends.
From the La Perouse Bay parking lot, you’ll see the trail paralleling the shore and weaving south along the coast. Before you set out, remember that there is no shade and the trail traverses jagged ‘a‘a lava that’s so sharp you’ll want proper hiking boots.
