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.

very pretty trail. good time had by all.

One of my favorite hikes anywhere in the world. Have done it many times. Go early, go often.

Such a beautiful trail - so many lookouts and great views. Feels like you can see the whole island. This was a real highlight of my trip and I greatly recommend it to anyone visiting. The trail was not too difficult and my whole family was able to do it. We finished in a bit more than two hours and took lots of time to take pictures and look at the view. There are picnic tables at the top also so you could bring lunch and eat there.

Trail head was really hard to find since the trail is REALLY overgrown. It’s a short hike. Beautiful! Be careful of the wet rocks. They are SLIPPERY. My husband fell flat on his back. But you can play in the water and swim if you wanted.

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.

This is a fantastic location. The trail to the beach will take about five minutes to walk and does have some mildly steep spots. There are some small tide pools and cliff jumping spots on the trail to the beach that are enjoyable. The beach is in a secluded location protecting it from wind and some weather. There is a ring of rocks out in the water that slow down the waves creating a calm location with clear water. The water is calm enough for small children to easily swim in.

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.

Not an easy hike. bring waters shoes. expect muddy conditions but beautiful falls.

lots of people. beautiful falls. bring water shoes.

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.

The gate opens at 7am. I headed out ready to start the hike at dawn which was 5:45am, so had to wait til 7. Didn’t see that info anywhere on here, but saw some wild bunnies, a giant snail, and a nice sunrise while I was waiting. The trail is very nice. The mountains around you are green and lush. You get great views across Kahului and the ridge. Waterfalls are visible in the distance, but no water near the trail. It rains often over there, so expect the trail to be slippery in some places.

Very nice hike. Very muddy and cloudy when I went. Pretty good workout. Bring a walking stick very slippery on the way down.

We really loved the hike! In our opinion, the most beautiful in Maui. It’s all the way up the hill, good cardio and legs workout, but the views and the landscape worth it.
Some tips:
• there are two parking lots, drive to the nearest parking to the trail and just wait for a spot!
• get there early! Clouds move fast..at noon they usually cover the trail and you can’t take advantage of the views (one of the most espectacular things on this trail)
• bring a lot of water
• use hiking shoes..it’s really moody

Today something happened that left me completely speechless, devastated, and in tears. I could not believe it today when I was taking my friends, who are in town, to see the Honolua Bay jungle to find that it was destroyed. There was nothing left but the piercing skeleton of what it once was; of what I once loved. As I walked in the usual opening I began to comment and notice that the foliage was greatly cut apart and the trees were cleared back and the sunshine was beaming in like never before. I could not grasp what was happening until I was able to see through, the former dense and abundant forest, straight to the other side. I then found myself in a graveyard of chopped apart trees thrown about to create a shoddy path to the bay. I have spent countless hours in this forest climbing and hammocking in its ancient trees, swinging from vines while reenacting Tarzan, snorkeling in the beautiful bay, and wandering around like a lost boy in Neverland. The magic was gone, the green glow through the jungle’s once dense leaves was faded, and my hope was lost. That jungle brought me so much happiness, joy, and peace. I consider this a death and have been mourning the loss all day. I could not bare to take a picture nor even spend much time in there today because I was so deeply hurt. It is ridiculous to see, first hand, what we are doing to nature. Whether we realize it or not we are all taking part in destroying the earth. We buy plastic, drive cars, kill animals, use paper and furniture without putting much thought into the origin or the result of its being... but those are just a few broad examples. I will never forget this jungle, I have never cried because a tree got cut down, but this is seriously so so wrong. I loved that place. This is the first place I explored when I visited Maui in 2016, this is the first place I came back to when I moved here in 2017, this is the first place I bring anyone who is visiting, this place is my go-to and so very special to me and now it’s nearly gone. I absolutely cannot believe or fathom why or how this could have possibly happened but I am so disappointed and heartbroken.

It’s a cardio workout with nice valley and ocean views. The trail is too well-groomed for my liking. Too easy—a bit boring.

quick and easy. very beautiful. check in advance if swimming is open (was not for us in July).

Not really a “hike” but definitely an easy climb down to the bottom to get way better views. Don’t just stop at the top, the journey down and back up is not bad! I saw a woman in flip flops doing it... slowly, but still! The blow hole is pretty cool to see, as well as the waves crashing off to the side. There are huge boulders that probably are not recommended to climb on, but we did! And the views were awesome! Very beautiful down there with the sound of the crashing waves and looking at all the volcanic rock. Even the drive to and back was so beautiful!

Challenging but worth it! Amazing views throughout the whole hike, very rewarding when you get to the top! Be careful coming down as it can get very steep and slippery!
