Yes it is all the way without shade, the wind does make difference. Making sure you wear the hiking shoes since few places kind of slippery with the rock and dirt. We had great time and would do it again!

This was a tough uphill hike over rocks and an unsteady trail. It sure was beautiful at the top! The path is uncovered and a grueling 2.4 miles uphill - 4.8 miles total out and back. I’d recommend you pack snacks and water for the hike, and go on a cloudy day. Also, leave your car empty and locked. I saw a lot of broken window glass in the parking lot.

We completed one-way trail from Maalaea side (Use Maui Demolition as an address) to Ukumehame Trailhead which took about 3 hours at a leisurely pace for 2.5 ascent and 2.5 descent. You can park by the road as the gate to drive upto the trailhead is mostly closed. From the road it is about .5 miles to the official trailhead on the Maalaea side where the trail starts to get very steep. The climb is hard and extremely strenuous but the views are very rewarding. If you do not have enough time to do the entire trail but love hiking I would definately suggest to hike from the Maalaea side with a timed goal. The climb from the Ukumehame side seemed a little easier but the views were not that great. We did it on a cloudy day by starting at 2 pm ... on a hot sunny day the trail can be worse given that there is NO water, restrooms and shade along the 5 mile route. We Ubered the one-way trip from Ukumehame to Maalaea where our car was parked. Caveat being the cell reception in Ukumehame could be spotty ... we were good with ATT but another group with Verizon was not as lucky. Overall a great experience that we thoroughly enjoyed.

Being in Hawaii, I’m a fan of slippery ascents, Kauai-style, deep into the tropical rain forest. Maui has tons, but for a change of pace, this hike from the east trailhead near Ma’alaea takes you the dry way up to a pretty vista overlooking Kihei and the Lahaina coast. It is not a difficult hike, as advertised, if you leave at the crack of dawn and have plenty of water. There is no shade at all, but it is steepest at the beginning, then is a relatively moderate ascent up to the windmills, the top , where I turned around, like most people, because I didn’t have a ride awaiting me on the other side. A fine, two hour jaunt if you do it this way. One suggestion: Maui Revealed, the most popular guidebook, suggests heading up in the morning, the way I did , to avoid having the sun in your face. If you want nice photos, however, I would head up around 4, so that your shots of the landscapes are not washed out or hidden in shadow but bathed in a golden glow. If you turn back at the windmills, you’ll be back at your car before it gets dark.

The online content for this hike is pretty accurate. Between mile marker 11-11.5 on highway to Lahaina on the right after the tunnel if coming from Kihei (towards Lahaina). Good amount of parking. No shade from the sun at all and definitely need runners if not hiking shoes (no sandals or slip ons). Bring lots of water and careful not to roll and ankle. It’s really cool to see how big the wind turbines really are and we saw a few whales on the way up and down. Took about 2.5/3 hours up and down tho we did spend a bit of time watching whales. The view doesn’t really change from the bottom to the top - Main thing is to go up to see the turbines.
