This 4 mile out-and-back ridge hike in the West Maui Forest Reserve offers great views of the mountains and the Pacific on cloudless days. 

Waihe'e Ridge is a great hike for those looking for a hike to see waterfalls or to get a little exercise in. The trail is dog-friendly, but dogs must be kept on leash. Keep in mind there could be wet weather on the hike, so bring any necessary items (light waterproof jacket, hat, etc.).

Awesome Hike if you are looking for some gorgeous views of Maui and mystic fog over the mountains but the description is kind of misleading if you are expecting waterfalls. At one view point you can see large waterfalls way in the distance but you never reach any close waterfalls or swimming holes.

Very muddy but lots of fun! At the base of the trail and near the gate, there is usually a collection of sticks that can be used as a walking stick. Make sure to grab one for the mud section :)
