This trail is very challenging and beautiful! Highly recommend!!

Beautiful!! One of my favorites on Maui. It is a gradual uphill to a majestic view, even a picnic table at the top, so feel free to pack up lunch (just carry out rubbish, please). The walk down is super easy...

Awesome trail with beautiful views. If you look to your right at the base of the hill on the kihei side before you begin climbing up the hill you will see a trail that leads to the right through a gate and leads you 6 miles through rainforest to the most incredible view you have ever seen. If you do take this trail be aware that it is incredibly steep and storms can move in fast.

This trail is not for the faint of heart. Uphill the whole way, and that's not the worst..downhill back home is murder on your feet and knees. It is like waking a dry riverbed, lots of boulders and rocks. Wear sunscreen, there is no shade...

Beautiful scenery on the trail with lots of lookout points. Best to arrive earlier in the morning before the clouds roll in at the peak or you won't see much at the higher elevations. Points through the forest are very humid so bring plenty of water and my wife really wanted a towel to wipe her face. Going up the incline is pretty steady and the trail can become muddy and slippery. We survived in some nike tennis shoes. It does get cooler as you reach the top and we did encounter misting and a heavy rainfall. Made for a very scenic and adventurous hike, well worth the work.

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

great trail! went from ukamahame side. the trail was rugged and hot due to lack of wind. on the way down on the maalea side, there was little relief from the sun, but had a nice breeze. unfortunately my sole of my shoe came off at the 1.8 mile marker, so just had the upper to protect my foot, but finished without even a blister or cut on my foot.

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

The trail is perfect. Ridiculous views.
