There are two trailheads off Highway 30. One goes to the lighthouse and over a ridge down to the coast. The other trail is about 1/2 mile further up the road, just past MP 38.

Nice little hike down to the blowhole. Be careful on the way back as there are several ways to get back to the top. By the time we headed back, it was dark and we ended up emerging back at the road a few blocks east from where we parked the car.

This was a great hike. Very scenic. If you're not sure-footed, you can still see the blowhole from the top of the trail. Be sure to find out when the tide is high so you can actually see it blow. Take the warning signs seriously, people have died. We came at low tide so there wasn't much action, but still incredible views! Be sure to look for the heart in the rock. A must see!

A great trail that was one of our most memorable excursions in Maui. Definitely go to the second trailhead that has a fun descent to the blowhole.

Do not go all the way out to the blowhole. Watch it from a distance. People die here.

Really beautiful stop and not too bad of a hike. Definitely recommend shoes as we were in flip flops. Blow hole is pretty impressive as are the views down below. Look for the heart shaped cut out in the rock.

Jan, 9th 2017 Nice little hike with great views. You kind of have to make you own trail down to the blow hole over the rocks and slippery mud. Love the sign about being sucked in and Killed, and I do recommend staying a fair distance away from it.

Short trail that leads down to a great view of the coast, worth the drive if you are staying on the west side of the island
