Trail is CLOSED temporarily for repairs through 2/27/17 a sign said today when we went. It had just closed at the beginning of the year a few days ago.

So disappointed not to get to hike this one while here on Maui.

So, for now, I can only give it 1 star. Sad.

Awesome and muddy the way a trail should be

trail closed.... :(

The trek through mud is so worth the amazing views along the way. Stunning to say the least. Extremely sloppy at the beginning where trail is in the shade and towards the summit - but that is right now, I've hiked it before in October and the trail was relatively dry. Walking sticks make it a lot easier to navigate through the mud. People without sticks were more often the ones who were covered in mud from falling. Good hiking shoes/boots required right now because of muddy trail condition in a places. People in hiking sandals were turning around.

Trail was very muddy most of the way up to the top. Views were absolutely breathtaking and made the trip worthwhile. Wear proper hiking books for traction and grab a walking stick.

Trail is Closed - due to mud slides.

Great views, extremely muddy. Please grab a walking stick at the beginning of the trail. Take your time and have fun.

Beautiful hike with spectacular views! The trail is VERY muddy!!

Very muddy! Bring boots and not sneakers! Use a walking stick to make it much easier
