The trailhead to Waihee Ridge is located near mile marker No. 6.9 on Maui’s Kahekili Highway across from Mendes Ranch – take this road and follow it to the second parking lot. When you reach the trailhead, you’ll find two gates: go to the one that leads uphill and start your hike. Don’t forget to prepare for this remote ridge hike: you should wear shoes with good grip, and your backpack should include plenty of water, sunscreen, rain protection, snacks, and a first aid kit.
