Hiking the Acid War Zone Trail was something I really enjoyed doing while we visited Maui. I met multiple people on the trail who were confused about the trail and how to get to the Nakalele Blowhole so I will mention some of what we...More

Whether you take this scenic trail, or the more direct route down from a primitive parking area, it's worth seeing this geological phenomenon! The Blowhole spouts off every few seconds, and we saw a few that were at least 50 ft tall!

Okay, so it's discovered, but there's no crowds, and you're here getting the true Hawaiian experience: Just you and nature. The rocks have formed into a "blow-hole" so that when the big Pacific waves come in, it just bursts upward! The trail is easy enough...More

North view from the Island and you can see forever. It's a bit of a hike down to the blowhole, but you can make it. Just ensure the right amount of time. The entire North coast is gorgeous. Worth the time and effort. Past mm38...More

A great little jaunt down to the blowhole. Fabulous spot that'll give you a quick sense of the island's volcanic anomalies.

This was one of our favorite hikes on Maui. It is straight down and then up a sharp, rocky hill but well worth it. The blowhole is fun. Don't forget your water.

Started out in a little parking lot and followed an old Jeep trail down to the light beacon. From there we went down into the Acid War Zone area and continued over to Nakalele Blowhole. This was a pretty mellow hike. Some scrambling on rocks,...More

This place is like a theme park, or rather similar to Old Faithful Gizer in Yellow Stone NP. The blowhole shoots water fifty feet high or more at times. It's incredibly windy there, so keep your sunglasses tight on your nose.

The Nakalele Blow Hole near mile marker 38 is worth driving to. You do have to be in good shape to walk down the (at times steep) rocky path but the hike down is worth it. The geyser was very active and was a great...More

No, you can't. Buses stop in Napili. It's still a bit of a drive from there. Walking is definitely not a good idea either. The road becomes narrow and windy and people drive way too fast on it. Too far to walk to anyway... More
