Looking to escape from it all when vacationing on Maui? We encourage everyone to do at least one wet-sweat-muddy activity. Hiking is one of the best ways to get-a-way from it all. One of the best Maui hikes is located in the west Maui mountain Kahalawai. The Waihee Ridge Trail provides great views of Wailuku and Kahului.
The Waihee Ridge Trail is a 2.5 miles long fairly steep with a 1500′ gain in elevation, little shade, it is often wet and cloudy, provides amazing lush green mountain views.
Hiking with kids? Waihee Ridge Trail is steep and there are several sections with cliffs. For the most part this is a kid friendly hike and a trail we often enjoy as a family, we usually see other families with small children.
