Beautiful, easy hike. We got some great pictures at Hugging tree. Does anyone know why it's currently closed? It's been a few years since I did this one.

This is more like a ramble through the woods. I spent a half hour here just walking around and exploring down by the river. Beautiful, but not much to do. It cost $5 to park unless you're a resident of Maui. The trail re-opened Aug. 5, 2017 from a massive flood that wiped away part of the walking path.

Not really a hiking trail - a nice walk. A true tourist destination.
