Stroll along the beautiful coastline and resorts of Maui

Easy, mostly boarded or paved trail with easy access along many different resorts in the area. Great for exploring, seeing the quieter side of Maui. Perfect for a half-day trek.

This walk has breathtaking views. We easily found parking space and wasn't crowded, it was mostly just me and my husband so we had this amazing place all for ourselves. We got to see the sunset. I can't believe such beauty as this exists, I was constantly in awe of everything that I saw and felt a little undeserving. The... More

This trail is great! Its a little north of all the hustle and bustle of the resort area and you get some amazing views. My husband and I ran it and it was fantastic! Its free and close by! I'd highly recommend stopping in and at least walking some of it!

This trail is easy to follow and short. Other than the Dragons Teeth section you can do it in flip flops. The trail consist of wide paved paths, dirt tracks, lava rocky areas and through some car park areas. Nice scenery. Definitely find your way down to Dragons Teeth (not signed) and DT Fleming beach

Great starting point is the beach access parking lot at Kapalua Beach. If you arrive early in the morning (before 0800) you should be able to finding a parking spot with no problem. Then go on a beautiful walk with several short alternative side trails, including The Dragons Teeth. After you are done with your walk then come back and... More

This trail starts out easy near the Ritz-Carlton, but then gets much rockier as you make progress. It was occasionally windy/rainy while we were there, and the rocks definitely get slick. But if you catch it on a sunny day, there are lots of little nooks and crannies to explore (and swim, if you choose) and get away from what... More

Fairly scenic hiking trail with easy access from the West Maui Resorts, but be careful...there are a few spots where a slip could cause some problems.

We randomly stumbled upon this beautiful area when my fiancé and I were just driving around exploring the area on the way to the Blow Hole. Such beautiful views and great photo opportunities. Plus barely saw any people! Highly recommend this trail for anyone visiting Lahaina.
