Our group included a 12 year old and a husband who doesn’t do much hiking and everyone had a great time. It was very educational and the hike was not strenuous. They thoughtfully provide walking sticks. Thank you to Jason, our amazing guide!


I've been to the island several times, and this hike was one of my favorite memories. Our guide Yancy was so incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the plant life and conservation efforts on Maui. My husband and I learned so much on the trail. During the hike we had incredible views you otherwise wouldn't get to see without the tour. There were lookouts where you saw valleys that were just so beautiful. There was also some amazing trees like a huge banyan in the forested area. I don't consider myself athletic, and I felt this hike was the perfect pace and distance. I recommend this hike to anyone interested in learning more about the island's botany and conservation and wanting a leisurely stroll in a beautiful setting.


My husband & I were on this tour on Jan 13, 2024. It was raining the past week & some folks cancelled because of the weather. It was truly our gain, because the weather turned out to be just perfect!!! Our guide, "Yangtze"- apologies for misspelling his name, so sorry. He is half Indonesian & was soooooooooo knowledgeable about all the plants, trees, their Hawaiian names (he grew up on Maui) and even speaks a little Hawaiian. We were very impressed with Yangtze's knowledge of the this healthy native forest in the watershed. It's a very easy hike for those who normally walk or hike a couple miles daily.. I am 64 & my husband is 69 and we found this hike to be very doable & enjoyable. This trail is a short, 2-mile hike, but its richness come from the variety of native plants, trees (banyan trees, for example, though not native). We were even fortunate enough to see a Hawaii State helicopter land literally in front of us, to address the "pig situation" ( lol) on the land. I highly recommend this tour & would go again given the opportunity. Thank you, HeleWai eco tours!!!


We hit the jackpot with Kevin as our tour guide. He made the hike educational and enjoyable with his vast knowledge and expertise on Maui history and ecology. It was our favorite part of the trip for sure!


This tour was an amazing experience. It was such an informative, beautiful and fun experience for our entire family. Our guide, Jason, was extremely knowledgable, engaging and kind. I hope to do this tour again the next time we visit.

Wonderful tour. Ended up just being my wife and I so we got a private tour with Jason, who was so informative and knowledgeable about everything we hiked through. Very pleasant hike and awesome views.


We absolutely LOVED the Eco hike tour. Jason our tour guide was very informative of history of the islands, the water system created by the trees and plants along with Hawaiian culture. The hike had beautiful canopies and views of the ocean. My favorite tour ever and we have taken many over the years of vacationing in Maui. Aloha 🌺


One of the most educated and inspiring eco tours I’ve ever attended. I learned a lot from Maui’s eco system, water, customs, native plants and animals and how it all ties up. Our tour guide Jason is the most knowledgeable and enjoyable tour guide we’ve ever had


It was amazing!!! I didn't expect a tour to be one of the highlights of my family trip to Maui. Jason was our guide. He was such a great tour guide. Very passionate about the information


Not an avid hiker but one of the best hiking experiences I’ve done. Really interesting to learn about Maui’s water conservancy efforts originally under the helm of DT Fleming. Jason is a knowledgeable and engaging guide. Most of the hike is under the tree canopy out of the warm Hawaiian sun. Great views of the ocean and ridge lines from the peak. My wife, 14-year old daughter and I highly recommend.
