    Wow! What a hike. My friends and I had heard about doing a "moonlight hike" here since apparently it's brutal to do this whole hike in the sun & heat, which I can believe. So we started on the maalaea...  more »

    Take more water than you think you will need. Good workout, great views and fun to walk to volcanic rocks. Windmills on the top and can make hike longer if you want. Recommended hike  more »

    At the suggestion of our hotel's front desk and taking advantage of a breezy day, we spent 2 and a half hours pleasant pleasant on this trail down in the lush forest of Maui with very nice views of the sea. The effort has not been excessive and in fact we met some families with children. It's shown a great time but once, you will spend some nice hours.

    Go early to avoid being in the sun the whole time. Don't forget water and wear sturdy shoes. Great coastal views.

    This is not a easy hike, but worth it. We went to the "wind farm" and came back. Six miles round trip all uneven/rocky trails. bouldering. Great opportunities for whale watching as well. I think the trail gets lots of use, but it's respected by the people using it (clean). The views are amazing. Be prepared, bring water and trekking poles (if you aren't comfortable climbing rocks, or don't have the best knees). With the elevation change, you will get a workout. Leave the cooler in the car for when you get back, a cold drink and food were really good.

    Definitely a more advanced, strenuous trail. Be aware of extreme wind at the top, and lots of rocks and boulders make up the trail on the Lahaina side. Sturdy shoes, wind breaker and water, as well as Kleenex are must haves! Well worth the effort to take this hike!

    Hiking straight up a mountain around some ridges. We experienced very high winds in our face for most of the hike. When you finish the trail there is nothing interesting to see. The best views of the ocean are about half a mile up the trail.

Where to stay in Lahaina

Despite its popularity with tourists, Lahaina offers relatively few accommodations, which boil down to rental properties and several hostel-like establishments with rooms available on a nightly, weekly, or monthly basis. If you don't have to stay in Lahaina itself, consider lodgings in Kaanapali, less than 15 minutes away by car. Other good options are the resort hotels just to the north of Lahaina, and oceanside campgrounds to the south.
