Located within the northwest side of the island this 2.5 moderate difficulty trail provides a multitude of views including the Waihee Gorge and Makamakaole Gulch.

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.
