Poelua Gulch Trail

0.4 Miles
Wailuku, Hawaii

Dogs (leashed)

The Poelua Gulch Trail in Wailuku, Maui is an easy 0.4 mile out-and-back hike down to the northern coast of Maui, just south of the Nakalele Blowhole Trail.

This secluded trail leads down to the Poelua Gulch which is a small cove that sits in a valley between two hills. At the shore's edge you can find a fishing spot and an old make-shift building made from drift wood.

Unfortunately a lot of trash from the ocean washing ashore at this cove, so there's plenty littered within the rocks along the coast at the end of the trail. The view of the water from the end of the trail is really nice and no one goes down there, so it's a nice break from the crowds if you're planning to hit the Nakalele Blowhole Trail too.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, and no goal to profit - we share trail data for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes money and a lot of time and effort (including espresso shots) to run the site. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
