• 4.0 mile out-and-back
• Medium difficulty | Gain 1,590 feet
• Maui, HI | Hawaii
• Driving Directions: Trailhead

Gate on the Waihee Ridge Trail, Looking to Waihee-Waiehu.

Ascend the Waihee ridgeline trail up Maui's western peak of Pu'u Kukui and you'll be hiking above the sightseeing helicopter tours, and admiring the lush rainforest valleys and coastlines beyond.

Hiking on the windward side of any Hawaiian island means wet weather, muddy conditions and the threat of heavy rains. This trail is subject to all these factors, but the wet weather means waterfalls are plentiful, the vegetation is greener and the cooler conditions make for a nice comfortable hike.
