Waihe’e Ridge Trail is one of the most incredible hiking trails in all of West Maui. This trail has it all – mountains, lush jungle, waterfalls, and jaw-dropping views of the ocean.
This is a flat trail that follows next to the ocean rarely leaving the footprint of civilization. Kapalua Trail is a great “warm-up” option to do if you just landed in Maui and want to head out on an easy coastal walk.
Nakalele Blowhole is a natural geological wonder that brings many visitors. But most people quickly see the Nakalele Blowhole without realizing that there is so much more to explore in this area.
The Sliding Sands (Keonehe’ehe’e) Trail descends 2800 feet down into a volcanic crater floor offering views of red hills, cinder cones, and black volcanic rocks along the way. This is a fascinating place to visit especially for those who enjoy unusual Mars-like landscapes and geology.
If you like incredible natural scenery, minus the crowds, Halemau’u is another trail at Haleakalā National Park that you’ll want to check out. You can hike the Halemau’u Trail on its own or connect it with the Sliding Sands Trail for the ultimate hike.
