Hi there –
Thanks for stopping by A Side of Sweet! It looks like you’re going to Maui and are looking for things to do while you’re there. Maui is such a special place and I know you’re going to have an amazing time.
After a lot of deliberation, I’ve decided to delete the hikes previously mentioned in this post. I’ve been contacted on multiple occasions by Maui locals asking me to do so because the place they love is being destroyed by thoughtless tourists. Visitors read posts like mine because they are on the hunt for the perfect Instagram shot and not because they truly want to connect with nature. They leave litter, go off trails and even cause permanent destruction of the environment just for their personal gain.
I will not be a part of the destruction of these natural wonders. If you go to Maui, please stay on the trails, respect nature, and take some time to disconnect from your phone. Follow the signs and respect private land. Consider taking a bag with you and carrying out any trash you see along the trails. Don’t be a part of the problem, robbing this experience from future generations due to your own short-term self-interest.
P.S. – Here are some other Maui posts you might enjoy:
