Honolua Ridgeline Hike
Explore, Enjoy and Learn about Maui’s connection with water on a stunning native Hawaiian nature trail.
Join a local guide on a hike through the West Maui Mountains along a private nature preserve, typically unseen by visitors to the island. Sweeping vistas, Hawaiian cultural knowledge and outdoor adventure await. After “talking story” with your guide, you will walk away with the real information about what a healthy watershed is—and what it takes to protect it.
On this 2 mile round trip hike, you will discover the flora and fauna of a breathtaking native Hawaiian rainforest cherished by our island communities for its natural resources and beauty. This unique experience will highlight the sacred connection to water from the top of the mountain peak to the ocean reefs below.
Much more than an eco tour, join us for a journey into the rich native forests of Hawaii and the ecology of water conservation lands. We are passionate about all things natural and do our best to blow you away with the diversity of the area.
Complete your day with a visit to Honolua Bay to marvel at the ocean and enjoy a fresh Maui Gold pineapple as a snack.
