This is a nice trail that begins on private property. One pretty waterfall at the end. Not very challenging.

Great family hike! I’ve heard that this hike is super busy, but we didn’t experience that at all. I think the key is to go later in the day, to avoid everyone starting their excursions on the road to Hana. We got there around 330 pm and only saw a handful of people. We were totally alone at the 2nd waterfall and didn’t see a single person on our way back down. The 1st waterfall is super close. If you want to do the 2nd one, you’ll have to go through a gate which has a bunch of signs talking about how dangerous it is, and how it is for experienced hikers only. It wasn’t at all difficult for my kids. I think they have them up to make sure people are being cautious. I could see it being intense if there had recently been a lot of rain or something, but it was really quite mild when we went. Beautiful trail. Breathtaking waterfall!

The beach was great however the trail map goes through a private property I couldn’t access. It’s easy enough to go around. Be weary of doing this in flat soles or sandals. The ground is very smooth and next to a cliff for much of the path.

Great short trail to a beautiful view overlooking the coast. Don’t miss this hike. Bright sun for much of the trail,so be prepared. If it has rained, can be pretty muddy.

Challenging but views are worth it.

amazing views! a bit muddy/slippery, but worth every step!

Super short hike down to the blowhole. I knocked off a star because of how incredibly crowded it was. I would advise hiking boots or at the very least tennis shoes, but you will see people venturing down in flip flops. Be prepared to have a few heart attacks watching children haul ass down the rocks while they're parents meander their way down, oblivious to the danger the surroundings present to their kids.

When we hiked the trail, it was fairly dry, so I would rate this as an easy hike rather than moderate based solely on those conditions. The bamboo forest was absolutely my favorite part of the hike. Hearing the bamboo stalks knock together with the breeze was really cool. The banyan tree was also really beautiful! If there's no risk of a flash flood you can get closer to the waterfall, but beware there are fines if you get too close!

Bring shoes that grip. Muddy trail!

The blow hole is big and fun! Short hike and a neat thing to see, but there are other places that are 5 star.

Beautiful views. Well worth the hike. Took me 2.5 hours round trip. In OK shape. I’d rate this as moderate.

Beautiful Views! Easy walk to scenic lookout.

Breathtaking views, great workout could be slippery in spots be careful if raining! With the time!

Moderate difficulty. Lots of steps. Bring plenty of water and some snacks. It’s helpful if you have hiking boots for the mud and the hike down afterwards to protect those toenails! About 3 hours round trip. Well worth it, but stick to the trail.

Loved this little hike. Easy so it’s perfect for just about everyone. Stunning views of the ocean. You can go off the path safely here and there and really get some nice perspectives that you don’t see from the path. But be careful because there are no safety fences and looking down at the drops is a bit stomach-turning! We found the Ohai Trail Road quite an adventure as well. Started out at Kihei where we are staying and took the 30N route (past Maui Tropical Plantation). Kind of a Road to Hana type drive with twists and turns, one lane roads and bridges, and beautiful scenic stops along the way. A couple of art galleries and local food vendors, too. Exited the road by Kapalua. Really great way to spend a day!

Awesome trail but not for inexperienced. Pretty steep climb up.

Great one, do in the nmorning to avoid clouds. Did it for sunrise - turns out the gate is locked until 7 AM, so you'll have to add 0.7 miles x 2. Worth it. Easy to follow and walk, takes about 2 hours (with the extra 1.4 miles)

Nice one! Terrain is very easy, so you'll do more mileage than you might be used to

This is really short, almost too short to be called a hike, and you can do it in flip flops... but it’s incredible! The landscape is rough and rocky (what I imagine Mars is like)... at one point I brushed up against a rock and it was a good thing I was wearing pants because it would’ve been a cut up leg. We ventured down to heart rock and got some awesome shots of the rock & blowhole. People... please pay attention to the warnings... the blowhole is dangerous and can suck you in and you probably won’t survive. There was a kid there that stuck his head in and all I could do was pray for him.

My mother would not let me get too close, and by that I mean we were a solid 2 football fields away from the blowhole. But besides overprotective mothers, this is a must do! I recommend no children, as it is a pretty steep climb down nothing but rocks. Also I saw some kids about 50 ft away from the hole itself, and I will not lie, I was kinda freaking out. Super dangerous. Still, it is beautiful, and you should do it!!!!!!!

Steep at first then very flat and easy, short trail. Great views feels like you are walking on mars or another planet! Blowhole is cool too

Great views. Start early.

Very fun but very crowded.

Took my group about a hour to get up. Trail is rated moderate but I would give it somewhere between moderate and difficult if doing it in hot conditions. Quite a bit of elevation gain, slippery in areas, and we sweated the whole way up. Nice views on the way though!

Rocky area, but easy for almost everyone. Definitely recommend going early. Gets pretty crowded even at 9am

We went two days ago, it’s a beautiful hike with so many different views but when we went it was SO muddy, definitely don’t wear your nicest shoes or clothes, most people coming down had fallen at least once! Have done this hike a few years ago though and it was dried up, we had no problems so I guess it just depends on the weather!

We took our 5 and 8 year old up this. It was definitely the most challenging hike we've done with them. Straight up a decent climb right away. It was a hot, clear day and the trail gets baking hot once you leave the first bit of forested area (about the first 1-1.5km or so) - bring lots of water. If bringing kids, also pack tons of snacks because you'll be bribing them a lot to keep going (or piggy backing, like me - which makes for an extra good workout). Despite the dry day, it was still very muddy, which can be fun or disastrous for the kiddos. We got lucky with the clouds and didn't get rained on, but it was a slippery slog.

All in all, a great way to add some variety to a week of beach hopping and over eating :)

A great hike to get out and see the scenery in Maui and get a good workout in!! Such awesome views! trail was very very muddy, make sure you wear good shoes (not sandals!) and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. The road up is narrow, and the parking lot fills quickly. We were there at 7am and were the first there, took us 3.5 hours to complete the hike and the parking lot was packed when we left. There is overflow parking as well though! If you have hiking poles, they’d be super helpful. Would definitely recommend!!

Stream not crossable , it’s a Raging river right now. Pretty muddy since it’s been rainy and the upper trail was closed so u can walk maybe 100 yards in wet mud to see beautiful vegetation and have some coconut chips at the food truck.

Spectacular waterfalls. A bit muddy but not too bad. Took us 3 hours in and out with fairly long photo stops. Highly recommend!
