Go early before it gets hot, and secure your belongings before approaching the windmills, as they ripped my sunglasses right off my head!

We started on the east side at 0815. We noticed everyone else was walking up the access road towards the east but we followed the official trail and got a serious cardio workout. The footing was all right but proper footwear was essential. We got...More

I stayed at the Westin Resort & Spa in Kaanapali, so this was the closest intermediate hike I could find. I woke up at 5:30AM, was in an Uber by 6, and dropped off at the Lahaina side trailhead by 6:30AM. Highly recommend getting an...More

A great hike near Maalaea Harbor that takes you up between the wind generators with excellent views of the surrounding area. The trail is technically an end-to-end hike with one trailhead just north of Maalaea near junction of HI-30 and N. Kihei Rd, the other...More

We did this trail from both the east and west side. They both are challenging and very rocky for large sections of trail. The west trailhead is off Honoapiilani Hwy just before Ukumehame Beach State Park if you are driving from Kehei side. There is...More

This was our fourth time hiking this trail and every time it has been different. If the forecast is sunny, go early and bring sunscreen and water. If cloudy and raining, watch for mud and slippery parts of the trail. A very fun and rewarding...More

This is a pretty steep trail (we began near Papalaua Beach) and hiked for about an hour. The trail is MUCH longer. The views are worth the effort (see photos). Bring water and take your time. This is a HIKE so wear appropriate footwear. There...More

Maybe it was the challenge, or the sites or the photos or the company, but this zig-zagging trail was amazing!

We started on Ukumehame side and hiked to the 'top' then returned back to our starting point. The trail is easy to follow, and you know you're near the 'top' when you approach the wind farm. You'll walk through the wind farm as you reach...More
