We did this trail for the second time and the view still blew us away. The best view is at the scenic lookout (a little over a mile up).
A few tips...
1. Bring water - it gets very steamy
2. Wear good shoes - tennis or hiking
3. PARK IN THE PARKING LOT - NOT OVERFLOW LOT. If you park in the overflow, you add nearly two miles more to your hike and it’s all up in the beginning.
4. It gets easier once you get past the concrete ramp!!

Simply beautiful! You have access to the most « typical view » you hope to see when coming to Hawaii : green mountain sculpted by old volcanic activities. It asks some effort because it’s a constant ascent (2 miles) and then you go down (same 2 miles) but accessible to everyone I think. If you are less in shape, you can stop the ascent at the first lookout and get back without going to the summit, it worth it.

Took us 1h30 up and 1h down, we are in medium shape.

A great trail to see magnificent ocean views, amazing lookouts onto lush valleys and some rather posh real estate. Not a beginner hike; the first section is a paved, rather steep incline, but afterwards it levels out to a more gradual slope. Parking is limited, so I suggest you go early...the drive there is worth the trip in itself!

Moderate Hike in good weather, but if is wet( it usually is) the descent can be somewhat difficult and muddy. Great views when the clouds clear. It took us about 3 hours not counting the 2 hour drive from Lahaina.We were all pretty muddy by the end of the hike, but was definitely worth it.

We did this hike but it is very muddy which makes some areas slippery. When we hiked there were a lot of clouds and we couldnt see the real views that people talk about.
