Hiking the Waihee ridgeline up in the Maui mountains is dramatic and always scenic. This hike in West Maui Forest Reserve promises lush scenery, great valley views and some dramatic ridge-line hiking. A well groomed ridge trail suitable for trail runners and hikers of all skill levels. Elevation gains by clean switch-backs and stairs spaced apart by spots of flat terrain. Good views available if hiking on a clear day but expect moderate sun exposure. As on the windward side of all Hawaiian islands, you're more likely to be in for wet weather and muddy conditions. But it's not all that bad, since this means waterfalls are plentiful, the vegetation is greener and the cooler conditions make for a nice comfortable hike.

If you're not used to hiking with this level of humidity, this is a difficult one! But beautiful views throughout the entire hike

Beautiful hike. You will be above clouds once on top. Bring water and food and extra layer, gets cold on top. Views are amazing with lot of beautiful plants and flowers to see on the way. Jungle is something else. King Kong might live here! Lol

Amazing views when you are lucky enough to be there on a clear day! And misty and mysterious on all the other days!
When you are as high up as the helicopters you get a sense of exactly how vast the West Maui's are .... they seem to go forever!

Amazing! It's a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. First half has great mountain views. We went up all the way but it was so cloudy we couldn't see anything. Still awesome!
