“This is a moderate out-and-back trail with incredible views of the Waihe'e Valley.”— Michelle Parratt
Try to do the trail early in the morning as clouds tend to move in later in the day, diminishing the views. The trail can get muddy when it rains, making hiking difficult.
Trail ends at a hill called Lanilili at 2,563 feet, where there is a small deck with a picnic table. If it isn't clouded in, you can see views of Haleakala on one side and all the way to Molokai on the other. Return to your car via the same trail.
