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.

Very cool quick stop. Once you see the small Olowalu sign to the right of a small shack (where we actually parked instead of hiking through a hot open field like the trail suggests), the petroglyphs are only about 100-200 feet ahead on the right.

Most are on the first set of rocks past a second shack while a few more are high up on the hill where signs restrict your access.

Amazing althought it is really hot, bring at least 2 liters of water
