Moalepe Trail

Moalepe Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This trail meets the Kuilau Ridge Trail just below a ridgetop. Since the two trails meet at the same spot, it is a mystery why they are not considered one and the same. At any rate, you can hike this one to the end, then retrace your steps, or continue along the Kuilau Ridge Trail for a longer hike.

You will need a car shuttle unless you don’t mind walking all the way back, a 10-mile round-trip. If you have to choose between the two routes, the Kuilau Ridge Trail is more scenic. The trailhead is well marked with a brown and gold sign. Do not leave anything in your car."

"This trail meets the Kuilau Ridge Trail just below a ridgetop. Since the two trails come together at one spot, it is a mystery why they are not considered one and the same. At any rate, you can hike this one to the junction then turn around, or it can be combined with the Kuilau Ridge route for a longer hike. The Moalepe Trail is less heavily traveled and gives you a different, and perhaps more dramatic view of the Makahela Mountains. You will need a car shuttle unless you don’t mind walking all the way back. If you have to choose between the two routes, the Kuilau trail is more scenic." Read more
