  • There are not many hiking trails in this rainy area of the island so I was lucky to have found it on a hiking website. To see the same area, you almost need to take a helicopter ride. No issue driving...  more »
  • This hike provides fantastic views of the West Maui mountains and valleys. As others have mentioned parts of the hike are quite muddy and slippery. You need to wear appropriate footwear to deal with t...  more »
  • This was recommended by a local for the view and it was well worth the effort! The elevation gain and mud could be a deterrent for some, but the view is worth it. 
  • Easy to get to the trailhead with a large parking area nearby. The views were great and near the top we were above the tourist helicopters. There were several "gates" on the trail apparently to keep motorized vehicles such as dirt bikes (my guess only) off. But they were a minor annoyance.
  • This hike is very weather dependent. I have done it on a clear day and it is amazing. I have also done it when the clouds roll in and while it is still a fun hike the views disappear and the trail gets muddy.
  • Decent trail with some great views early in the hike. As you get further up, some areas have been eroded a good bit from water flowing through the trail. Less "scenic" as you get further back into the trail. Be sure to get here early, as in when they first open. Fog does move in later in the morning and you can't see anything when you are up on the trail.
  • I can't imagine it is always like this but I attempted to hike here for the first time today and stopped half way simply from there being too much mud. The trail was incredibly slippery which just led to a slow pace. Based on the awesome reviews I wish the conditions were different and it must have been from recent rain. Wasn't worth the hour+ drive.
  • Only a short section is extremely muddy just after the 1st gate. Take a stick to help you for this section, after that there is just one or two paddle to jump (if it has no been raining a lot recently!). Amazing views up to 3/4 of the hike, the last quarter we were inside the clouds, no view from the summit but I still don't regret it, it was a beautiful hike.
