A nice quick walk with incredible views before we left for the airport. Actually the drive to the park is very scenic as well.

Very short and easy! Mountain views are great!

Wouldn‘t call this a hike! Very short and easy. Pools look cool, but I would definitely recommend to do the Pipiwai Trail next to it, which is even more amazing!

Easy accessible and beautiful surroundings. Amazing bamboo forrest followed by an even more amazing waterfall!

Easy, beautiful hike!

We did this trail starting at Mike marker 38. it's called Acid War Zone to the Blowhole. It has some rock scrambles, but we enjoyed it. Much less crowded than from the other side (mm 38.5 or 39?)

This was a bit of a climb down. I would wear hiking shoes or something stable. I saw plenty of people in sandals, though. The scenery at the bottom is beautiful and well worth the little trek!

Awesome views! The only advice start it early cause I got caught in the rain at noon. I’ve done it for 4 hours 15 min.

This was a fun moderately technical and strenuous hike with awesome views. It can get very windy near the top. There are two interesting educational boards near the windmill that explain the geography and how a windmill works, unfortunately both are very faded. Since others warned about car break-ins, I parked in a beachside lot just to the north of the trailhead. I figured parking in full sight of the highway might make the car a less attractive target. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this strategy since no one else parked there and you must cross a busy highway to reach the trailhead.

Highly trafficked. Some rocky navigation involved. Beautiful views. Highly recommend.

Must see! Absolutely beautiful

Perfect hike for beginners. I've seen more impressive waterfalls at the end but after a long drive along the road to Hana, it's nice to stretch your legs on this walk.

Great hike, need solid hiking shoes for some rocky parts of the trail, really worth the view !

Ahhh the road to Hana! Please be courteous and yield accordingly. Black sands beach is absolutely gorgeous and worth the drive, when we went it was rough sea and raining pretty hard, we still swam in the ocean and made for a great time!

Great walk. Some cloud at the top but no issues with views in the crater. At the first fork I stashed my bag behind a bush and completed the loop with less weight. Easy right up until the re-ascent.

Great ocean view. It can be done in 2 hours with a walk/run.

Part of the trail was washed out. It took a little exploring to find the trail again, but at the tip was beautiful. Forewarned you will get muddy. There is also a way down to the river and the walk back along the river is beautiful. There are numerous places to jump in and see the natural pools.

This is a great little spot. While not a real hike (don’t expect to get your steps in here) it’s certainly a great return on the investment. Being our last day in Maui, and having 6 hours to kill before our flight, the family and I was looking for something quick and easy we could see without destroying our “going home” clothes. This was it. The whole think took less than 30 minutes and the needle was a fantastic site. The whole path is paved and the most strenuous part is the 40 or so stairs to the top lookout site.

For being less than a mile, this trail is harder than I thought it would be! The way down is more difficult because you have to scramble down rocks almost the entire way down. Good shoes are a must! Great views all around and the blowhole is fun to watch. Don’t miss the heart-shaped rock that is to the right of the blowhole.

Get here early. Catch the lady that sells warm banana bread. Wear hiking shoes. Check tides if you really want to see the blow hole explode. Watch out for sharp rock. Please dont leave trash around! Respect the land!

Breathtaking views, a heart shaped rock and an amazing workout! it’s very rocky and steep so be sure to wear sneakers! But it is a must go to!!

Loved this hike did it just before sunset as our final destination along the road to Hana ! Took us about an hour round trip but we hiked pretty quickly. They say it takes about an hour there ans back. Waterfalls breathtaking !!!

Great short hike. It’s a little up hill at the beginning but the rest is pretty flat. It took us a little less then an hour up and back.

Amazing hike. It’s a popular trail, so expect to share it with plenty others,but it’s so beautiful that it didn’t matter to me. The first waterfall is a nice one off in the distance. The bamboo forest seems pretty magical. I like the sound of them knocking into each other as the wind blows. The waterfall at the end is spectacular. There is a sign at the end of the trail that states the danger of the waterfall, but the trail continues on to go right up to the falls and it’s such a wonderful experience to look up and see the water falling down this huge cliff 400 ft above you. Just don’t go under the falls! Imagine a stick or pebble going over the top and falling 400 ft picking up velocity until it smashes into your skull. It was the perfect final destination on our road to Hana day trip.
