Demanding, can be dangerously hot during the day. Take lots of water. Take the left trail at the windmills to stay on trail.

Wow! What a hike. My friends and I had heard about doing a "moonlight hike" here since apparently it's brutal to do this whole hike in the sun & heat, which I can believe. So we started on the maalaea side first at around 6:45....More

Take more water than you think you will need. Good workout, great views and fun to walk to volcanic rocks. Windmills on the top and can make hike longer if you want. Recommended hike

Great views on this hiking trail even if you don't make it all the way to the top. Plenty of places to stop and catch your breath

My rating represents the degree of difficulty of this trail. Up up up over boulders with very few breaks. The wind is fierce. Attempt only if you are very fit and an experienced hiker.

Not hard to walk. Plenty of stops along the way for beautful pictures. Takes about 1 hour depending on how fast you walk and stop.

This trail is a 10 mile total straight through trail with two trail-heads. We started at the East side and just did the 5 mile round trip to the top and back. The views were decent - you can see a large part of the...More

I started on the Lahaina side. There was ample parking and I didn't feel at all unsafe parking and leaving my car there. Some people like to go toward sunset, hike up a mile or so, and have a little campfire after watching... More
