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 indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
