Great trail. We started around 8:30am, which was perfect. The temperature was ideal and the trail was fairly empty. It took us just under two hours with a short break on the top to enjoy the views and have a snack. It's a steady uphill most of the way, so it helps to be in good shape if you want to enjoy it and not be exhausted.

Spectacular views and a good workout! A must do for outdoors lovers when visiting Maui. 180 degree views of ocean, plus neighboring island, mountains and a few waterfalls (from a distance). We went on a drier day, so there were only a few slippery spots. We wore our Chacos and did fine with these. I would call this a moderate difficulty hike. It took us 2:15 of hiking time to complete the entire ~4 mile round trip, 2:40 if you count the break we took at the summit. NOTE: Trailhead open 7a-7p. Recommend going in the morning as we did to avoid clouds and rain. No restroom facilities.

explored across the bridge off trail, lots of beautiful side trails.

Tough elevation climb but worth every step. Beautiful views.

One of my favorite hikes in Maui. Be prepared for a muddy trail & it's slippery on the way down. The views are amazing but eventually get obstructed by fog at higher elevation. Mountains covered with trees and foliage are lush & green. The weather gets chilly towards the end of the trail. Must do hike.
