NileGuide Expert Says:
An off-the-beaten-track trail that affords lovely views and lots of edible guava. DO NOT EAT the deadly poisonous Apple of Sodom growing near the entry gate.
- Beginning at 1,000` elevation, trail climbs the windward slope of west Maui through a brushy guava thicket, a young stand of planted trees, and wet native scrub forest. Views of Waihee Gorge and Makamakaole Gulch can be seen along the way. On the peak, at 2,563` are panoramic views of Wailuku and central Maui, the Kahakuloa slopes, and Mount Eke. Weather at the summit varies from clear to overcast with showers. No drinking water is available along the trail. Camping is not permitted.
