The Maunahui Road Trail is a 9.8 mile trail that leads into and through the Molokai Forest Reserve on the Hawaiian island of Molokai. The trail, which ranges in elevation from 0 to approximately 3,250 feet, is not recommended for beginning hikers.
Maunahui Road trail begins at Highway 46 and the Maunahui Forest Reserve access road. The trail slowly gains in elevation, until it finally reaches the Waikolu Lookout and picnic area. The trail is open to hikers, bikers, horses and 4-wheel drives.
The Moloka‘i Forest Reserve was established by Governor’s Proclamation in 1912 to protect and permanently maintain mountain forests to ensure the continued regular stream flow and water resources. The Reserve is spread across east Moloka’i and is currently comprised of several non-contiguous areas totaling 11,690 acres of public land.
Hunting is allowed on certain parts of the area. It is recommended that hikers wear bright colored clothing and stay on the trail at all times. All hunters are required to carry the appropriate hunting licenses as well as any required permits or stamps.
