Don't let the 1 mile hike length fool you. This trail can be extremely dangerous, especially if it has rained recently. Locals have many stories of tourists being seriously injured (and worse) by falling off the trail or being washed out to sea by the dangerous currents.
Access the trail by parking at the end of Uakea Road. The trail on Google Maps is unreliable and it is much better to look for the trail at the end of the road, to the right of the green schoolhouse. Sensible hiking shoes are a must and you should keep a very close eye on small children.
The warning sign indicating dangerous conditions and hiking at your own risk is the first clue you're on the right path.
