Kapilau Ridge Trail to Wailuku Cross is a 1.8 mile out and back trail located near Wailuku, HI. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round.
Park on the East side of Alu Rd. Trail begins right by the electric lines and cane grass. Bring snacks, water, knife, and wear good shoes. Trail is relatively difficult. My husband, our 6 year old, 4 year old and myself were able to make it to the top and back down within an hour and half. We had plenty of mini breaks and the boys had fun sliding down half the mountain on the dead pine needles. A light rain started and made the trail a bit more of a challenge, but my husband said that Waihe'e Ridge and Windmill trail are definetly more treacherous. So! If you're in good shape and like a fun trail with beautiful pines, this is it! Have fun, be safe, and God Bless!
