Wailuku, Hawaii Map

This trail was very hard, but worth it. The first 15 minutes are arguably the hardest part, and once you get about 30-45 minutes in, you are rewarded w spectacular views. I started at 8am and was sweating the entire time, you should not need a coat unless it’s raining. It was very muddy, I made the mistake of wearing Chacos so it took me about 1.5 hours to the top and almost 2 hours to get down. I took my time and enjoyed it! I would do this trail again!

We started this trail around 730am. Took us 2 hours to do in total with some stops. The hike up can be a little difficult since it's pretty much all uphill but the views were so worth it. We were lucky that is was a beautiful sunny day but it sure made it hot. It can get muddy and a little slippery at times. Once we got the top it was so worth it. We made it just in time before the fog rolled in. So I highly recommend do to this hike early morning to beat the fog, heat, and the crowds. The hike down was much easier. Deff recommend this hike for people who love mountain views. Bring snacks and plenty of water

This is one of the most scenic trails on the island including panoramic views of the ocean as well as getting incredibly close to windmills. It's tough though, only a single tree on the entire trail to offer minimal shade. Bring a lot of water.

Great trail - we started at 8:30 and made it about halfway up before the clouds came in. So I would recommend starting earlier and wear hiking boots if you have them, the ground can be pretty muddy/slippery in areas.

Great views along the way. Unfortunately foggy when we were on the top.
Takes 1 hour (easy) up and 25 minutes down.

Breath taking views all around. But the trail was more difficult than anticipated. The way up took about 2.5 hours. Down took about 30 minutes. I would highly recommend hitting the trail before 8:00 to avoid crowds.

Awesome view! We were there on 9-Oct-2017, started hiking at 9:45 and finished at 12:15. It's a little bit late as the clouds covering the top a little bit. Maybe you should try from 08:00!

Amazing views!!

also no shade, i did it yesterday in the 89 * heat, on the way up, the first of five legs, a few small trees every once in a while, to shade and take a restpic.

awesome hike, very tough sob, but worth it, over lava road placed rocks path, 2.1 miles up up up, took two hours of straight up up up to get to the top. tough but worth it, coming down 1 1/2 hours. one has to be careful going up and coming down, hiking shoes a must. power windmills at the top.
