It was a fantastic hike! We went on an overcast day and the ground was dry, FYI. My husband and I wore our hiking shoes (him: Merrill Moab, me: Merrill barefoot Trail Gloves). And I had my walking sticks! So we were prepared for a...More

As others have noted, the road to get to the trailhead is a bit scary. Go slow and be attentive. There are two parking lots. Luckily, the one closer to the start of the trail wasn’t full. This helped us avoid an even longer stretch...More

We started our drive from West Maui and took the North route to the trail. This road was scarier than the road to Hana and included numerous one lane roads around tight corners of the cliff and most with out guard rails. The views and...More

Tremendous hike...strenuous but not overwhelming. It took us about 2 hours up and an hour & a half down (with plenty of stops). I would recommend starting early as the parking lot fills up and the hike becomes more difficult during the mid-day heat.

We hiked this trail yesterday and loved every minute of it. ( Actually, the first 400 meters are not the best - hiking up a very steep concrete path...) but everything after that is lovely! First you walk through a forest area where Norwegian spruces...More

This trail was a major highlight of our trip - one of the best hikes my husband and I have ever done. It's pretty rugged though - I wouldn't recommend small children for this trail. My husband and I are pretty active and it was...More

Many of the pictures online show a trail with beautiful views. We hiked it when it was totally covered in clouds and fog, but it was still a lot of fun. I'd recommend it even when it's cloudy. The trail is moderately difficult, and you...More

There is only one hill on the course and the entire second half is all down hill. 😁Beautiful every which way you look. I loved it! It was steep in some places, but I like steep. Not much mud in July. I couldn't see from...More

This hike takes awhile. And it gets hot. And it's hard, because you are hiking up a mountain ridge. But once you get to the top, it's so rewarding and so worth it. The views along the way are gorgeous. Bring lots of water and...More

I took a teen and tween to hike this trail. We all loved it. It’s listed as moderate, but some may consider this difficult. The views along the entire way took my breath away. It was beautiful. Kids even loved it (with only a few...More

I wish I could, but am currently in Texas. It was one of the best hikes we did in Maui! It was raining, the footing treacherous, but the waterfalls were engorged, over-flowing and beautiful. Good luck to you! Don’t let... More
