“A steep run but worth it, as you get to see so many changes in vegetation.”— E Z
This is an out-and-back. It seems like most of the advertised scenic routes are a several-hour drive away from Lahaina (road to Hana). This is close to resorts and has some nice overlooks, but no really stunning destinations or features.
That said, it is still a beautiful run through greenery that changes dramatically as you go up. The trail goes much further than we did, so continue on to explore more. It was a great way to spend 3-4 hours running in a rainforest-like scene.
