Amazing hike on a clear day

We did the hike on a cloudy day and were left wondering how amazing the views would have been on a clear day. There were a few moments where things cleared up and the views were incredible. This hike is definitely still worth doing on a cloudy day but aim for a clear day if you have an option. The trail can get wet and make for slippery conditions on the way down, but half the fun is trying not to fall.

Foggy but still awesome!

It was really foggy the day we hiked this ridge. But even without the views it was a really great hike, and the fog made for a really unique atmosphere.

Super Fun Hike!!

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.
