Fun hike in Maui that actually has good elevation. Started at Aina Nalu and hiked up Lahainaluna Road to the solar panels (on the right side of the road just before the high school). Then started to hike up the mountain with the solar panels on my right. There weren’t any trail markers. I just followed what seemed to be the fire road up.

The All Trail path does a pretty good job at the start but it does not go all the way to the L. I noticed a couple of pale pink ribbons marking a side trail off the fire road that looked like a dry stream bed. I followed that and they lead to a series of switchbacks. Those eventually ended in the L.

Pretty incredible views of west Maui. Spoiler alert. The L is marked in chalk. Apparently the locals re-chalk it several times a year.
