FIrst off, hiking boots are a must. The trail is very rocky and windy. Pretty views but very windy. Took us 3 hours to go to top and back.

Go early before it gets hot, and secure your belongings before approaching the windmills, as they ripped my sunglasses right off my head!

We started at around 8am. There is very little shade on the trail, so would probably start a bit earlier if I did it again. I think we parked at the east trailhead. Lots of broken glass in the parking lot so assume there are...More

We started on the east side at 0815. We noticed everyone else was walking up the access road towards the east but we followed the official trail and got a serious cardio workout. The footing was all right but proper footwear was essential. We got...More

Coming from Lahaina, look for Ukumehame Park. South of that on 30 is the trail head. Or going toward Lahaina ... The trailhead is on the east side of 30 just past the tunnel.
