The Hike up the Lahaina Pali Trail
Hiking the Lahaina Pali Trail can be an amazing experience. Starting from the south side of the Lahaina Pali Trail is the best, if you can get a ride back from the far end. The Lahaina Pali Trail is 5.5 miles long and has quite an elevation change. The heat is extreme when you start hiking up, but there are some awesome sites to be seen. Hiking up takes up about 40 percent of this hike, and it is the hardest part about it. Take a few breaks on the hike up the mountain, and you should be able to make it no problem.
The Lahaina Pali Peak and the Hike Down
Once we got to the top of the Lahaina Pali Trail, we could finally cool down and check out the massive windmills stretching into the clouds. The grass was extremely green from all of the recent rain. We passed through three miles with 3 designated gulches on the way down the far side, and had an amazing view. The hike down is far easier on the far side.
