    This is a great trail for views into the beautiful steep green valleys on the Eastern side of Maui. It's around 4.5 miles round trip, and I would rate it moderate with a few steep sections. Definitely...  more »

    We are walkers - the whole family. We trek a lot. This was a reasonably tough but short walk. The "flat" bits are often still uphill, albeit a bit more gently. Don't be put off by the start which is p...  more »

    Based on previous reviews, we began this hike at 8:00a (which was good advice, as clouds do move in). This was a beautiful hike and well worth the increase of heart rate! The beginning cement walk is ...  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.

    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.
