Maui Rain Forest Hike vs Haleakala Crater Hike vs Downhill Bike Ride

Jump to last reply

Hello. My family of four will be going to Maui for 5 nights/4 days in August. We will be staying in Lahaina and are not planning to rent a car. I've been looking into activities to keep us busy while we are there. At first, I was all for the sunrise tour of Haleakala and downhill bike ride. Then I thought that there is no way I can get my two teenage children up at 1:30 am for a 2:30 am pickup at the hotel, and considered the early morning tour of the volcano and bike ride instead. Then I started to read about how dangerous the downhill bike rides can be, especially later in the morning as traffic in both directions picks up. But it does seem like a fun activity and a must-do while on Maui.

Then I looked into hikes of the rain forest. There's one with Hike Maui that seems to be perfect for us. It includes a drive along the Road to Hana.

And then I thought, if we don't do the downhill bike ride, how about a crater hike? Hike Maui also offers an all-day hike.

If we had unlimited resources and unlimited time, we'd probably do the rain forest and volcano crater hikes. Unfortunately, neither is the case, and my husband is making me choose. I personally am leaning towards the rain forest hike. What are your thoughts about this?

Thanks.
