Lahaina Pali Trail from the Ukumehame (West) Trailhead Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Lahaina Pali Trail is an old Hawaiian horse and foot trail built in the early 1800s. The trail was used as a more direct route across the arid southern slopes of the West Maui Mountains, connecting Lahaina and Olowalu with Maalaea and Wailuku.
There are two trailheads that zigzag up the mountain, crossing ridges and gullies to the 1,600-foot ridge. The interpretive trail passes rock outcroppings, ancient stone walls and offers panoramic coastal vistas of Lanai, Kahoolawe, Haleakala and the Molokini Islands. This hike begins from the Ukumehame (West) Trailhead and can be combined with Lahaina Pali Trail from the Maalaea (East) Trailhead for a one-way, 5-mile shuttle hike."
