A great day! The mules are so safe and just go into auto-pilot up and down the cliffs. The views are spectacular and the guides are great, especially Audrey, they are very knowledgable and friendly. When you get to the bottom, you get a guided tour from one of the residents. Our guide was Norman, who was funny, informative and... More

My husband and I went on Monday. My mule was fine on the way down. I had major anxiety as I hate heights and I am not experienced on mules or horses. I pictured a mule to be the size of a donkey but I was wring they are as big as horses! The trail was muddy and the mules... More

It was so much fun! The guides were great, and the mules know what to do, just set back and enjoy the ride, and the sights. I would suggest bringing some light rain gear, it rained the day we did our ride, but it was no problem. The tour; which is included was most informative, include the light lunch and... More

If you go to Molokai, you have to do this! Not only is the ride a true adventure, but as a bonus it also includes a tour of Kalaupapa. Highly recommended.

It's not for the faint of heart, but it is a crazy journey down a steep cliff and at the end you will appreciate Kalaupapa that much more. We had the smallest group the guides had ever taken, just my fiancé and I, we'd gotten engaged 2 days prior so it felt meant to be that it was just us.... More

I was a little hesitant at first, especially with the hefty price tag, but very glad after completing it. The staff are cheerful and very helpful. The mules know exactly what they're doing - you can basically just sit and take pictures. It can be a little nerve-wracking, especially when the trail is narrow and steep, but we all came... More

When I tried to book the mule ride, our date was sold out, but was told we could hike the same trail. The journey was amazing!. It was funny - I thought we'd have a guide or printed instructions, but it was "Go up the road, go around the marked fence and start hiking and make sure you are down... More

The trail is part of the national park and, unfortunately, is not well maintained. It was washed out in many places with deep holes and a few low branches. It was good to learn that grant money was coming in to repair the trail. The trail guides were very good. No safety helmet is provided so you may want to... More

I came with a friend in March, did the tour had an amazing experience! Decided to bring my husband for the same experience and was VERY disappointed. The 3 guides we had (Audrey, DJ, and one other ) were not pleasant, rarely spoke, didn't say anything about the area were we hiking down, and to top it off DJ was... More

This was so much fun, on the way down the trail it was a little scary but not to bad, took about an hour to get down the bottom. From there we got on a big yellow school bus and took a tour of the colony stopping at various places of importance ( churches, memorials etc) some of the stops... More
