Spectacular Island-Wide Views
Waihe'e Valley Rd
(mile marker 5)
Wailuki, HI 96793
This trail climbs the windward slope of West Maui 2.5 miles to a peak overlooking Wailuku. It begins just below the Boy Scout's Camp Maluhia in the pasture and climbs through a brushy guava thicket, a young planted stand of trees, and finally into wet native scrub forest. As you progress up the ridge, the view continually changes. First you look down on the Boy Scout Camp, then into Waihee Gorge with its dark verdant cliffs, then north into Makamakaole Gulch, and finally to the top, where you can see from all of Wailuku and central Maui to the Kahakuloa slopes and directly inland to Mount Eke, shrouded high up in the clouds.
