As someone who just moved to the island and doesn’t hike much, I thought this was difficult. But man it was worth it!! The views from any part of it are spectacular and there are plenty of places to pull off the trail for a quick break! Even a nice table up top to eat lunch! We reached the summit around 11:30 and the clouds had just started to roll in, and then it became very overcast. Definitely recommend heading up earlier than later if you want the best views!

We hiked this on Thanksgiving Day in 2017 and absolutely loved the views. Having read previous reviews, we were sure to time it so that we reached the summit by 10:45 (the best way to ensure that cloud cover doesn't impede the views). And sure enough, once we reached the top, it wasn't more than 10-15 minutes before the cloud cover started rolling in and completely blocking the views.

It rained on us while we were going up for a little bit. That caused the path to be EXTREMELY muddy. That meant that we basically had to RUN down on our return in order to avoid falling. Overall, a very fun hike with some great views of city/ocean/valley/mountain. We will definitely do this again.

Easy to navigate this trail on the Hana side of the Haleakala National Park. Halfway through, the trail turns into a man made board walk. When we were there in November 2018, they had dropped new boards at various places along the trail to widen or lengthen it. The bamboo forest is amazing!! The waterfall at the end is much larger and higher than you would ever expect! Wear bug spray.

just lovely and mystical. the scenery is breathtaking, the sheer amount of greenery is unbelievable. few waterfalls, pools, ocean views.... the vegetation also changes from sort of a rainforest at the bottom to bamboo forest about halfway through. we strongly recommend it. it's nice, easy and refreshing hike.

It's private property. You are breaking the law if you go on this trail. Hikers we saw coming out of the trail were covered in mud and massive bug bites.

Amazing hike! Not that hard by any means. Definitely muddy. Was pretty foggy at the top. Amazing views!

Highly recommend this hike, especially at sunrise. The views are incredible and varied. It was muddy in sections but nothing a good pair of hiking boots can’t handle.

Absolutely amazing trail, 2 big tips: bring solid footware and dont be scared by the tourists in the beginning, nobody goes further than 200ft, after that you’re all alone and the real beauty of the trail starts! at the end the trail is sometimes hard to find but thats part of the adventure, bonus: look for the sea cave at the end, there is a small path on the left going down into it

very nice hike, the hike keeps on giving with the bamboo forest and waterfall at the end

incredible views along entire hike. good elevation gain, a little slippery at spots, wear good hiking shoes with tread. would not recommend to do hike in or after big rain

Absolutely gorgeous views. Relatively flat hike/walk, but you definitely need to pay attention to where your walking with the uneven rocks.

A stunning hike. Parking is $25 (credit card only) but that buys you a three day pass to Haleakalā National Park, including the summit. If you have a National park pass or military ID, bring it for free admission. We arrived by around 12:00 and seemed to have beaten the crowd. The lot was packed by the time we were heading out, and the trail seemed to be getting pretty congested on the way down. After passing one dry waterfall half way in, we were worried that the higher falls would be dry also. They were not. Keep going — it’s worth it.

It’s not good right now, best time to go not in the winter. We went December 4, 2018. River is out off control, too much rain. You won’t be able to swim or get across. It’s dirty brown water raging rolling down. Upper water fall is closed. Tourists r everywhere it’s not good!

Beautiful view. Love this trail.

Love this trail..... panoramic ocean views for most of it.... Great rocky climb.... 1500 ft elevation gain in a mere 2.35 miles.... I do it in trail runners no prob.... you may wanna utilize a more substantial boot however

Hard core bouldering. Did okay with my heavy treaded vibram five’s. started about 7:30am which gave the ascent some good shade. glad i did, the decent back to the car was hot as sh!t. Enjoying a cider from maui brewing after. Amazing hike.

Beautiful, short, relatively steep trail to the bottom. Slippery at the start, but 1/2 way down there were enough rocks & boulders to assist.

The beach was serene. Not a soul around which made it very peaceful.

Spectacular views! We did this in the light rain and it was muddy and slippery. Would not have been worth it in heavier rain, but as it was, we loved it. Some folks we passed found it easier to do with a walking stick. Given the mud, I thought the way down was much harder than the way up.

My favorite trail in Maui. Reasonably challenging with outstanding views of East Maui. Hiking shoes /boots recommended, definitely not a flip flop hike.

a nice hike, lots of elevation and a killer view. if the trail gets wet it is pretty slippery on the way down so essential footware is key

Nice walk to waterfall and swimming! Easy for most people, walk through stream with current but fairly easy.

10 out of 10 - would recommend!!!!!! Definitely opt for the swim at the end! (You need to be a moderate swimmer) The last waterfall makes the entire hike worth it all!! Got muddy and wet from head to toe so don’t bring anything you don’t mind carrying with you. Would recommend a waterproof backpack if you want to bring your phone or water/snacks.

One of the best hikes in Maui! Go past the sign and go all the way to the fall! Completely worth it!

Hard hike, lots of rock climbing and no shade. Nice view of water but no big view when you get to top. Bring lots of water!!! We ran out

Great trail. Beautiful views. I went early and was the only person on the trail until I was part of the way back down.

Nice and interesting trail through lava field. If you go to the old lighthouse, there are two pools on the way that are worth to stop and swim in them. Just go to the lighthouse and when you see small path leading to the right side, go for it and you will find them! Enjoy! :)

We went this trail when it was raining a lot but it was still very beautiful trail! There are few waterfalls along the way, you go through bamboo forest and there is so big and beuatiful tree on the way! The waterfall in the end is huge and amazing. Definitely worth it!

The way to the first waterfall is muddy so be prepared. In total, there are four waterfalls. When you are at the first one (very nice btw), go left and continue to the second one. There is a swing you can jump from to the water, so enjoy it! You can continue further on the left side (you have to climb a ladder). I was not sure what was the third waterfall because there were two small along the way. To the fourth one, you have to jump into the water and swim a bit. It is definitely worth the adventure!
