Hiking

Go early. No shade and full exposure so getting there at sunrise is key. Such a beautiful way to see the light come up. Epic views and interesting volcanic rock

Great views. Brown Red blue color scenery. Turbines in the end. Good for watching sunsets if you are okay with night hiking. We managed pretty well with phone lights

The trail is very rocky and I advise to take hiking boots or hard soles shoes. No shadows on the way, meaning if you do it in a sunny day you will feel the heat! View at the top with the wind turbines is very beautiful.

It was a difficult trail full of beautiful views. I would caution one to pay attention to the wind conditions and time of day. The trail is tasking to a novice trail goer like myself. The wind gusts on top of the lava rock with steep grades made it difficult to traverse. I'm glad I did it, but I might have to be coaxed to do the entire trail again.

It was extremely windy (makes sense, given the wind turbines), but it felt a bit unsafe at times. The views at the top were not that impressive. If your goal is a challenging hike you will enjoy this. If your goal is gorgeous views, you only need to the first half mile, and the rest of the hike is not worth it.

Great workout. Try starting the hike earlier in the day otherwise the heat would be the biggest challenge and not the hike itself. The heat in my case made me grateful for the bits of cloud cover that I’d get occasionally. Carry 2-3 liters of water per person.

Definitely a steep trail, especially in the beginning. Really rewarding view of the coastline at the top! Make sure to wear proper shoes.

This is not a good hike. Compared to other hikes you can do on Maui, this should be at the bottom of your list! Some info/suggestions about this hike if you want to do it anyway: - I’ve done it from both trailheads and would recommend going up from the one closer to Lahaina and then down that one too. The trail closer to Wailuku has nothing to recommend it as the trail is worse, the view is worse, and I think it’s also longer. - As others have said, it’s very hot (zero shade) and steep so keep that in mind and maybe go early in the morning (though I’ve gone midday and it was fine). - The windmills are pretty cool though.

Sunrise views are excellent. Started on Lahaina side at 4:45am to reach windmills just ahead of sunrise

Omg.. My feet hurt. The trail is basically all rocks, well marked, but rocks and straight up hill. You got a great view of the landscape, ocean and windmills, but I have hiked better. Rich in history though I couldn’t imagine doing this to get across town.

Gorgeous. Hot. You’re not supposed to but *in theory* (ie I didn’t tell you to) it sounds very cool to stand underneath the giant wind turbines at the peak.

Fat guy advice ~ What goes up must come down.... Hike is basically straight up the side of a mountain obviously. There are no switch backs or shortcuts, just up. Beautiful views on the way up and at the cross. The way down is torture on the knees.... I’m a big dude (6’1, 300lbs) and this was not pleasant on the knees at all. If raining or wet at all I would not do this trail. All in all it’s a pretty short hike, but still took me like an hour as I was gasping for air on the way up and praying I don’t slip on the way down. Have fun!!!!! Or not.... ;)

Great view all the way up. Pretty rocky and slow going - gets quite hot the later it gets.
