The views from the trail are gorgeous. The trail is an out-and-back return trail that is mostly uphill going out, but is not excessively strenuous for those in decent shape. Views of the coast and of some valleys of West Maui are really nice. The trail is very muddy in several spots so dress accordingly, as you'll be jumping over... More

Awesome hike! We came here before we rode horses at Mendes ranch and loved it! It was muddy and slippery when we went but ok if you don't walk on roots and slip. Beautiful views, it started off a little cloudy but cleared up enough the more we went up. Beautiful views of the ocean as well!

We pulled up and read the sign that says the gate closes at 5. Parked at the bottom near the main road and hiked up the 1mile paved road to the trail head. Once we got on the trail we hustled to make it up and down before dark. It was fun hike with great views, even saw a few... More

I did this hike with my teenage son, and it was a great time for both of us. The hike can be difficult because of mud (this had to be the muddiest trail I have ever hiked, and I live near Seattle). The trail itself is moderately difficult with a decent elevation gain, but we saw young kids and they... More

Went on this hike this morning and it was fantastic!! It is very muddy but that adds to the fun in my opinion. Great views the entire way. I would recommend to start early we started at 7:15 which was awesome and it was much busier as we were finishing. Easy to find the start of the trail if you... More

We did this hike early in our recent trip to Maui, and were glad we did. The trail is quite muddy in spots; we trashed our running shoes which was a minor issue thereafter, but the hike was memorable and really a highlight of our time on the island. We took Andrew Doughty at face value and started by 8;... More

This hike had the potential to be a five star for sure and if the visibility was better the muddy conditions would have been the worthwhile price of admission. However we didn't check the weather and it was totally socked in and we didn't get lucky with a break in the clouds. We did the hike in about 2.5 hours... More

This trail was really cool, but so muddy. We did not come to Maui prepared to hike but we're excited to find a highly recommended trail. It has gorgeous views and I would have enjoyed it more had I not had to look down the entire time for fear of slipping or falling over roots. While listed as moderate, it... More

Enjoyed hiking this trail. It was muddy in spots but well worth it for the beautiful views. Recommend that you get an early morning start before the clouds come in.

Affords amazing views and a sense of achievement. Can be very muddy, don't try this in flip flops (we saw some I wonder how far they got?). The steepest part is the initial road from the car park, don't be put off it is steep in places but that is the worst bit.
