The beginning of the trail is marked by overgrown elephant grasses, soon giving way to dry land shrubs. You will be able to get the first glimpse of the Kealakekua Bay at this point, with steep cliffs above the Bay. Hidden in some of the caves here, there are the bones of ancient Hawaiian royals. Soon, you will reach the first Vista, from where you will get a clear view of the Bay.
Check to see if you can find any of the Spinner Dolphins here. Along the trail, you will reach the edge of the old lava flow. The trail then steeply descends to the sea, through a rocky path and intersects the Old Government Road. The trail will run through the Hawaiian Villiage of Kaawaloa. Keep walking along the trail. Just before reaching the end of the trail, you will come across a cut-off to the left. Follow this trail to reach the spot where Captain Cook was killed.
