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 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!

This hike had great views. Very rocky trail but worth the hike. Trail head comes up quick on the way to Lahaina.

This was a good hike. Make sure you have some good grip and comfortable shoes. The views are beautiful and it's worth taking an early day hike. Pack a snack or lunch and water to take with you. Don't forget your camera.

My husband and I are visiting Hawaii from Colorado. We were excited to find this amazing trail, with some elevation gain. The views along the whole trail are breathtaking! We would highly recommend this hike!

The trail can start in Maalea and end at Olowalu or vice versa. We started in Maalea and I think the end was easier because the stones were not so bad to walk in. No shade in any part of the trail. So, if the...More

Lahaina Pali Trail is a 5-10 mile hiking trail with amazing views of Maui, the ocean and the Hawaiian islands of Molokai and Lanai. Definitely worthwhile for anyone visiting Maui!
