  • ...but I don't know from personal experience. Unfortunately, we went on a drizzly, overcast day. Luckily, I had researched in advance and knew that it would spoil the views, but the weather on our tri...  more »
  • It's a hike, not a walk. We brought our hiking boots as this was on our target list and they helped a lot with a sometimes muddy trail. But the views are stunning...everything we had hoped for in a Ha...  more »
  • THE RIDGE TRAIL IS NOT JUST A STROLL IN THE PARK My problem is I can’t resist a group trek – particularly if it’s guided, includes transport to/from the trailhead and costs zero - which BANANA BUNGALO...  more »
  • Loved this hike!! The views just kept getting better and better as we climbed. Definitely a strenuous hike, but well worth it. We went early May and as people suggested - started early - and glad we did! We started at 7:55am, reached the top at 9:10am and had about 7 minutes of beautiful scenery before the clouds rolled in. When we started there were only 3 cars in the lot and wasn't crowded at all. When we got back down (10:15am) there were about 20 cars. It wasn't that muddy when we went (I managed this hike in converse chucks no prob) but could definitely see it getting pretty slippery and muddy following some rain. Definitely a bucket list item
  • Great hike. Not flip flop friendly unless you live in flip flops. Bring more water than you think. Views are well worth it.
  • Beautiful hike. Hard but lovely. Not too many people but go early because it gets hot!!
  • Loved this trail. Make sure to go early in the morning so you don't get all the clouds (happened to us). Forest is stunning. View is awesome.
  • This is an amazing hike. Short, but a great workout. Each time you come around a corner, you'll see a breathtaking view, each better than the last. You get views of Wailuku, forested ridges of mountains, and Haleakala in the distance. Quite steep at the beginning and near the turnaround point. Your experience will vary greatly based on how prepared you are. The early section is very muddy. We watched someone in sneakers slip, slide, and fall trying to get up and then trying to return to the parking lot. If you have hiking boots with a good tread, and preferably a hiking stick, you'll be fine. The clouds roll in late morning, so get there early or you'll miss the view. You'll also be working hard and much of the trail is only lightly shaded, so bring plenty of water.
