Spectacular hike with breathtaking views of the mountain and ocean below. I started at 7:30 am and was happy I did - very little shade so bring lots of water. The ascent was much easier than the descent on account of the consistently changing rocky surfaces. I wore minimalist trail running shoes and recommend something that offers a bit more stability and cushion for the descent. If you go early you'll likely see several whale pods (3 in my case). If you're staying in Lahaina this is a must-do!

This trail is fairly difficult because it is an uneven surface. Lots of boulders to walk on and climb up. Definitely need tennis shoes at least. Beautiful fees of the ocean, windmills and mountains.

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.

I had never seen or heard of this site before. We arrived and there were no their tourists. Not so much a hike or trail as a walk.

I did this hike one morning when I was off from work. Recommend starting at around 7 in the am (earlier the better). Can get very hot when the sun is out. Start on the Maalea side. Awesome views all along the trial. I suggest bringing plenty of water and sunscreen. The turbines at the top are huge. I thoroughly enjoyed this hike.

Amazing views, great uphill (ankle breaker descent), and perfect on a cloudy, non windy day. Bring water! The wind turbines are worth a look.

trail closed.... :(
