Not for the faint-hearted, the views are superb.
- Trail runs from a point near Maalaea Harbor with refreshment stands and restrooms, over a ridge and down to a long, sandy beach with snorkeling, surfing and picnicking facilities. Ranging in elevation from 100` to 1,600`, the trail offers excellent scenic vistas of Kahoolawe and Lanai islands. Whales can be observed during the winter months. Scrub vegetation at the lower elevations gives way to endemic dry-land plants as the trail climbs. The Old Lahaina Trail is part of the historic around-the-island trail system on Maui. This is a Na Ala Hele Demonstration Trail
