Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Keaau Beach Park is a gorgeous, tree-lined park and picnic ground dotted with palms at the west end of the island. The Waianae Range is the backdrop to this grassy coastal park.

To the south, the hike follows the low bluffs parallel to the rocky shoreline and reef to numerous tidepools. To the north, the hike extends to Kalaeopaakai, a black lava point backed by sand dunes."

We took a group of 6 boy scouts and 2 adults and dropped them off at the north end of the trail to hike back to our campsite at Kea-au Beach park. We hiked on the road for about .2 mile before we got to the trail along the beach. The entire trail to the campsite was inhabited by persons living ion cars, abandoned travel buses, and make-shift shelters. We decided to hike on the beach which made it more difficult with the backpacks. There were some places where there was very little beach to walk on which caused some to walk on the exposed rocks. That time of day had big surf conditions making the rocks slippery. The hike served its purpose but I would not recommend this as a published trail since there are inhabitants along the trail that won't be moving for a long time.
