Waihee Ridge Trail Reviews
Pass through the first parking lot & go up to the main lot. Stop somewhere else first for a bathroom because the satellites were not serviced for a long time. The initial quarter mile is steep, but th... more »
Took an amazing hike on the waihee ridge trail. This is a superb hike and we'll worth the trip, it's family friendly and not long at all. Round trip is under five miles with a wide, we'll maintained d... more »
This hike is pretty intense (moderate in hiking terms). Make sure you park at the second parking lot, or else you’re going to have a bad time. The hardest part has to be the very beginning, where ther... more »
Waihee Ridge Trail is not for the faint hearted, this trail will test you to the max but every step is absolutely worth it, with excellent stunning views and a Ascent of 1700 to 2600 feet the scenery just gets better and better. This hike will take you (depending on fitness level) around 2 to 3 hours so allow plenty of time because believe me, you don't want to rush this one. Good hiking boots are absolutely needed for this trail too especially in damp conditions as it gets very slippery and muddy, caution is absolutely needed but if you up to the challenge Waihee Ridge Trail is highly recommended. Happy trails. Aloha
I would like to start with the 'cons' first. There really aren't any, BUT, this is a seriously intense trail. I was completely unprepared, as I don't believe I have an actual muscle in my weak, pathetic body. BUT. I did it. If I can do it, anyone can. I stopped a LOT to catch my breath. I probably lost ten pounds in sweat alone. It's still worth it. This is hands down the most satisfying, amazing, breathtaking hike I have ever done. And I live in Colorado right next to the Rockies, so... Guys, the views are gorgeous. If you do anything in Maui, do this trail. You won't be sorry. You won't regret it - unless you give up halfway through. JUST DO IT!
The trail offers great views while being quite easy and very accessible. There is a parking at the trail head as well as an overflow parking a bit lower (requires more walking on the road before you reach the trail). On the way you pass different kinds of vegetation. There are forests with different kinds of trees and some firns higher up. It's suitable for trail running. It's about 3.5km one way and 300m elevation gain. Parts are not shaded so probably it works better if you choose a cooler or cloudy day (but not too cloudy to miss the views). In December there was an interesting smell in the air coming from some plants growing there.
If it's a cloudy day, you probably will be getting some shades on the trail from the clouds, which is nice. If it's a sunny day, make sure you have plenty of water and sunblock. Wear shoes with good grip. If it rained the night before, it's gonna be pretty muddy and slippery at times. The trail is pretty wide and it's well-maintained. Chances of falling is slim. But you might get very light-headed from the height. Pace yourself because the path just keeps elevating.
Really good, well marked trail. Pretty steep in places and can be muddy if it’s rained recently, so make sure to bring some good shoes. Was surprised to see people in sandals. Good use of a couple hours. Nice view from the top.
