"With the magnificent Pacific views and elegant Maui condos along the beach, our stay here was magical."
Although you may be enjoying your Maui vacation in the lap of luxury, gazing off the edge of a beachfront infinity pool at stunning vistas, venture beyond the paved roads lined with rolling green golf courses and get a glimpse of Maui in its natural state.
Known as one of the best islands for hiking, Maui offers dozens of diverse trails that skirt the lava cliffs along the water, venture deep through bamboo forests to towering waterfalls, or climb high into the clouds like the Waihe’e Ridge Trail deep in the West Maui Mountains.
Beginning with a steep, paved climb straight out of the parking lot and ascending 1500 feet over 2 ½ miles, this is by no means a walk in the park, but the views of Makamaka-ole Falls, taro farms and the stream below, deep in the Waihe’e valley, make it one of Maui’s finest. Aside from the level of difficulty, there are steep drop-offs, so this hike is not recommended for small children.
The clouds generally roll in and shroud the peaks by afternoon, so it’s best to hit this trail early and be sure to bring water and, as always, don’t forget the camera!
Directions: From Kahului, head north on Highway 340 and continue along the winding cliff road to approximately 9/10 pas the 6 mile marker. Follow the signs to the Maluhia Boy Scout Camp. The trail begins off to the right.
