Maui Hiking Trails: A Complete guide on Maui Hiking

Hiking is a common activity on Maui. Hiking on the Maui River is actually a wonderful family activity and a great way to spend the day whether you are hiking with a group or alone.

There are some extremely wonderful hiking paths on Maui, and hikers would not be disappointed. Here we are going to examine some of the best hikes on Maui. You can go through a trail that will bring you through a rain forest or walk through a gulch with a waterfall of around 400 meters (Pipiwai Trail, past Hana). If you prefer, walk down the ridge of the Waihee Valley and spot uncommon birds and tropical vegetation. Even the erosion crater of the Haleakala volcano may be explored and one of the weirdest and unique plants in the world can be seen, the silversword. In fact, we’re particularly fond of the several pathways at Haleakala’s top (Keoneheehee Sliding Sands Trail is fantastic for views into Haleakala).


Hosmer Grove Loop Trail (Upcountry & Haleakala Region)

Within Haleakala National Park lies Hosmer Grove Trail. Turn left at roughly mile marker 10.5 on Highway 378, immediately after entering the park, to access the Hosmer Grove trail. The trail is approximately a half-mile long.

A tremendous delight for the senses is the Hiking of Haleakala and its rough moon-like scenery. But if you find yourself looking for green trees and plants after touring the region, you will certainly have a wonderful journey by hiking via the Hosmer Grove Loop Trail, cedar, spruce, pine, eucalyptus, and more.

Wai’anapanapa State Park Trails

Haleakala’s last exhibition can be observed at La Perouse Bay on Maui’s southeast coast. Scientists estimate that Haleakala erupted into the jagged shoreline of the lava rock in 1790. There is now a monument and the remnants of Hawaiian islanders who lived on the jagged a’a lava rock and built their homes.

Here, visitors can wander across lava fields and explore sea estuaries. This is a popular spot for dolphins and local fishermen. Be prepared for the wind and apply sunscreen.

Keoneheʻeheʻe (Sliding Sands) Trail

The Sliding Sands road descends into a world of heavy lava scenes and ever-changing clouds. The trail leads to the parking area of Maui’s Haleakalā Visitor Centre, next to Pa Ka Sun (White Hill). This hike is best completed in two days, so make sure you have a Paliku camping or cabin permission.

You’re going to notice the first thing, Silence. The sole sound is that of volcanic cinders crunching beneath your feet. If you have time, only coming down 20 minutes will repay you with an in-depth experience and fantastic photo chances. Unfortunately, the ascent out takes nearly twice as long.

The first six miles of the trail follow the southern wall, providing spectacular vistas. Vegetation is small, but green kūpaoa plants and silver lettering can be seen. After the lengthy straight, you can see cinnamon cones littering the bottom of the crater at the first major view.
