Cinder Cone Hike

I've looked at this mound of red cinders in south Wailea at the edge of the Makena State Park and never thought to climb it - but its doable - but whoooo - take walking sticks along since the way down is loose and slippery. The Pu'u Ola'i Cinder Cone Trail is a 2.2 mile moderate loop hike. When you are on the beach in Wailea-Kihei- look south for the cone.

Son Justin was able to make it to Maui for Thanksgiving week and a hike was just the thing he was looking for - before the massive meals...!
