We hiked a major portion of this trail, to a good lookout, and the road is/was rough enough much of the time that most rental cars companies won't even let you take a 4 x 4 on it.... Probably a good idea... Saw plenty of wildlife, and some excellent scenery...

Many posters are confusing the Munro Trail with the Koloiki Ridge Trail. The latter is the 5 mile hike behind the lodge, and there is a small amount of overlap with the Munro Trail. The Munro trail itself is a 12.5 mile dirt road that begins about a mile from the Lodge and ends at the road 2.5-3 miles above... More

We did the short walk that starts behind the Lodge. Stop at the concierge and get a map before you start and give your name for safety reasons. Get a bottle of water too while you are there. Took about 4 hours round trip. Beautiful views of the ocean and surrounding mountains. Mild to medium exertion on this hike.

After seeing the reviews of this we decided it was something we really wanted to do so we booked a Hummer through the 808 hummers website and made arrangements to be picked up at the airport. We were met there by Jeff who gave us book of places to see and driving directions to them. When we asked him about... More

Your UTV ride with Western Adventures up the Munro Trail begins at the Stables at Koele and take you on trails through ironwood forests and up the ridge for some spectacular vistas. The weather in this area is diverse and you will likely experience foggy mist or sparkling sunshine or both while on the excursion. The Munro Trail is named... More

We took a guide and spent quite a few hours with her. She didnt really have alot of information to share- so you might ask around about who the best guides are before hiring one. If you have a smart phone, its fun to locate yourself on google earth when youre on the summit.

We rented a jeep from Dollar and did it anyway. Most of the trail was dry and it was a pretty smooth road considering where you're at. I wouldn't advise it if the road was wet. Well worth the effort but on that day we went the VOG was pretty thick so we couldn't see Oahu and the Big Island.... More

Best part of the trail is behind the luxurious Lodge at Koele. Moderate hike that ends high on the headland looking across the ocean at Molokai. Superb 2 hour walk you will not soon forget. Lodge provides you with water and a map if you are a guest there.

This is a great trail behind the Koele lodge hotel. The trail is a medium effort trail and expect to take about 2 hours. The view from the top are amazing we saw whales.
