Maui Hiking Safety Tips

Here are some general safety tips to keep in mind when hiking on Maui:

  • Stay on the trail. Following a marked trail will help you avoid getting lost.
  • Be aware of your surroundings. Watch out for obstacles, inclines, rockfalls, and drop-offs.
  • Start early. Hiking in the cooler hours of the day will help you avoid heat exhaustion.
  • Wear sunscreen. The sun is stronger at high altitudes, so make sure to apply it regularly.
  • Bring plenty of water. Dehydration is a real danger when hiking, so make sure to drink plenty of fluids.
  • Know your limits. If you’re not comfortable with a certain hike, don’t try it. There are plenty of other options.
  • Hike with a friend. It’s always safer to hike with someone else in case of an emergency.
  • Tell someone your plans. Before you head out, make sure to let someone know where you’re going and when you’ll be back.
  • Never drink from a stream. Do not drink the water from any Maui streams or waterfalls, as it may contain Leptospirosis bacteria. This infection can cause flu-like symptoms 2 to 14 days after consuming contaminated water.

By following these safety tips, you’ll be able to enjoy your Maui hike to the fullest!
