Lahaina Pali Trail is a strenuous hike that rises to 1,600 feet in elevation, yet once you reach the top of the ridge, you’re rewarded with panoramic ocean and island views from West Maui to Haleakala. It’s part of the ancient Piilani Trail system that was paved with smooth rock to traverse the island’s coastlines. You’ll encounter endemic trees like the twisted wiliwili and dryland shrubs, not to mention native birds nesting and marine mammals frolicking in the sea. The 5.5-mile one-way trail can be accessed from Honoapiilani Highway 30.
