This trail is very popular. Expect to see quite a few people on the trail. The trail was dry, but it would be very muddy if there had been recent rain. Try to hike it when there are no clouds, otherwise your view will be obstructed at the top.

Despite the some other claims, this trail has a scenic half to it. The other half borders some ball fields and two dog parks - one for small dogs and one for large dogs. We walk our dog on this paved trail regularly.

Great trail. Definitely easy. Be prepare for a 3 hour hike. Mostly in the woods, no view. But really interesting fauna as you go up in altitude. Great half day activity and totally safe for kids.

Had a very enjoyable time at through this scenic drive. Do some research on which areas you want to stop. My favorite stops were: - hiking to waimoku falls via Pipiwai Trail (~2 miles). Muddy but the waterfall is worth it! - ke’anae arboretum for the rainbow eucalyptus trees - oheo gulch for the cascading waterfalls - wailua falls - there’s a trail to the right to get to the waterfall a 3 minute hike Highly recommend getting the Gypsy Tour Road to Hana app for $6! It was EXTREMELY helpful. It knows exactly where you are on the road even without cell service. With the app, you won’t need to note down mile markers as it mentions all of my fav stops. It’s best to start early, but a couple of the attractions didn’t open til 8:30am. We started too early and missed out on the Eden Garden and Lava Tube

The hike to the waterfall was amazing! Went through a bamboo forest before arriving at this 45 ft waterfall. Rocks at the waterfall are slippery. Most of the hike was muddy and wet. Tons of mosquitoes. Hiking sandals recommended.

Started hiking at 7:30am. It was windy and cold. Hiked in 2.5 miles and back out. Got a great view. Was hot on the way back going uphill. It will be a tough hike if you’re going in and out the whole way.

Excellent trail. I went to Paliku - it gets much greener when you pass O'ilipu'u. If you go that far you will see everything from fine cinder to both rough and smooth volcanic rock, along with grassy trails. Go counterclockwise so you can see the view around the bend as you pass Halali'i.

Nice trail. Very cloudy for us so we didn't see much of the crater.

Great trail with great views as you head up. Be sure to stop on your way up, the best views are during the hike. Keel an eye out for the two water falls early on in the hike. Parking is limited at the entrance of the trail, get there early and it shouldn’t be a problem. If there is no parking at the top lot, parking is at a lower lot which thereafter has a steep asphalt .5mile walk to the start of the trail. I wouldn’t recommend doing this trail if it has been raining it could become very muddy and slippery. The hike should be done in the morning as it gets quite hot up there. This hike took us 2hrs round trip. Would recommend this hike to anyone in Maui as it was our favorite on the island.

Good sunrise trail. Although it is an out and back, it feels like a new hike on the way back. No bugs. a little windy. If you take this, it is worth it to go further south to the cinder cones. The "unmaintainted trail" is okay too.

Great hime. Amazing views, especially at the top. Some muddy areas. We enjoyed it even in mid day. Lots of shade.

Nice trail with some great views at the top. You will need a 4-wheel drive vehicle to legally access the trailhead. Otherwise you have to leave your vehicle outside the park and walk an extra 2 miles.

So the park ranger at the visitor center told me it would take 10-11 hours to do this hike, he was way off. Took me a little over 4 hours, I walked at a fast pace but it wasn't bad if you're in good shape and hike. Some people on the trail were struggling but shouldnt have been a surprise to them since it didn't look like those people exercise. Sand is not bad. it's not like walking on a beach, it's easier. Elevation gain is fine. weather was nice the day I went. only wore t shirt and shorts but still brought rain gear just in case. different landscape than you'd see on mainland. fyi hitch hiking is doable but awkward to ask people for rides as some folks are not cool w that haha

Hard on knees but it’s exciting to reach the summit of the 4th tallest mountain in the world!

Today was the perfect day for this hike...clear and sunny! Views were amazing, from the valley/ridge, to the ocean and Molokai to the west, and Kahului and Ho'okipa Beach to the east. Pay attention during the journey, some of the best views are before the top. A bit muddy and slippery in places, recommend shoes over sandals and I found my hiking poles helpful. Start early, not much shade and lots of people. Loved this hike!

Awesome trail! It was a little confusing though. Many people kept going straight over a wooden plank, through some rapids with rocks where you get your feet wet and said they never saw a waterfall. We turned around and right before the wooden plank crossing there is some thick bamboo with a narrow trail that follows the creek. If you are walking into the trail facing the wooden plank it will be on your left. We took that and saw an amazing waterfall and since not many people knew it was there we had it all to ourselves.

Did this two days ago. Camped at kipahulu campground and started the trail around 9am as recommended by others. Very happy with that decision as it was getting quite crowded as we finished, was also getting quite warm by that time. First half was muddy but kept fairly clean stepping on rocks and roots. Last half was totally fine. Lots of board walk and rocks, no mud. Crossed the river at the end to get near the fall. It was fine at the time as the water was quite low and you could walk on the rocks. Would be very cautious if the water is high or you have poor balance. Whole thing took about 2-2.5 hours at a very relaxed pace with pauses to snack and enjoy the views.

Didn’t do this hike but stayed at the campground. Quite a bit of space for tents. Plenty of parking for vans and things as well. Several grills around and a small shelter with a grill. Outhouses were kinda gross but they’re there. Went in mid January and it was quite full. Near 0 Celsius over night. Bring warm clothes.
