If you are not an experienced walker/hiker this could be a tough track. The trail hugs the coastline in spots with grand vistas and ocean breezes. Most of the trail, however, is hot and dry and requires well planted steps. At the minimum, wear lots...More

This shady, ocean side trail is great for people of all ages. It’s wide and flat but there is some stretches of lava rock so make sure you have well soled shoes. Make sure to bring plenty of water and some snacks for when you...More

This is my favorite place in Maui. There’s a beautiful surprise at every turn. Be sure to wear good shoes (flip flops would be insane; the lava rock trail is uneven throughout, and you need to watch your step constantly). It’s easy to get here....More

If you are an avid hiker out to get exercise, go fast, and get great vista views, then this is NOT for you. If you are out to see the land, walk in the footsteps of ancient Hawaiians, touch the same volcanic rock that the...More

This is a hike that is for the most part on lava rock in all sizes. Any step could be an ankle turner so you spend the entire time looking straight down. It is not a scenic hike as you continue to walk through lava...More

Nice hiking trails, not strenuous except keeping balance on some of the lava rock. Go slow driving to and from the trailhead, lots of blind spots, narrow and bumpy, potholes in the road, at least the last leg. Go early and take water, it gets...More

We found this hike in our guidebook and decided to check it out and we were glad we did! The drive out to la perouse bay was a bit sketchier than we expected and made us glad that we rented a beater. This hike leads...More

We only went out 1.5 miles, though the trail is at least 12 miles out. It was incredibly beautiful. Mostly over very sharp volcano rocks and very hot. We took a lot of water and I was glad to have hiking boots, though there were...More

The trail begins along the shore after the small parking lot then goes on under the shade of trees and suddenly turns into a sun drenched, rocky road into a lunar setting.... Very nice hike if done during a cloudy day but if the sun...More

We went to hike the only trail that wasn’t closed on the south side of Maui, where our time share was. The King’s Highway trail also known as Hoapili, the governor that helped reclaim some of it to allow hikers access. Leaving from La Perouse...More
