Special instructions   Short notice, but, worth it.

We probably need to update the instructions, since you can of course park inside the gate up the hill.

Directions  From Makawao, head north on Makawao Ave until you pass St. Joseph's Church on your right.

Turn right on to Piiholo Road. Travel approximately 3km.

Turn left on the Waiahiwi Road.

Turn right on to Kahakapao Road and follow on up until the gate that reads "Entering Makawao Forest.".

The Good  Smells good, pretty trees.

The Bad  Trees...trees...trees...no view really...just trees...

Where  Makawao makai (up hill)

Notes  This is a fairly new trail (2005)

Do not park inside the gate. They may close and lock it at any time. Don't leave your valuables, this is just common sense in Maui.
There are several trails that branch off the paved road (all marked). People bike these trails also. If you head straight up you will hit the reservoir.

The ground can be muddy, and some parts including the paved road are actually steep.

Figure a 7km hike is about 3+ hours.
