Start the trail on a crushed gravel path bordered with guava trees and the 100-year old Cook pines. Walk for 0.3 miles through a forest of non-native Surinam trees till you come to the first junction. Then turn right to the Mokupea Lookout to look for the dense forest reserve and the ocean at the distance. Continue your journey on the Arboretum Trail and turn right at the next junction to take the Banyan Loop Trail. Soon you will pass a gate and enter into the Puu Kukui Watershed Preserve.
Walk under the New Zealand Kauri trees and giant Traveler's palms till you enter into a cool forest of Banyan trees. Turn right at the next junction and take up the Honolua Ridge trail. The trail next ascends on switchbacks and after a final rush up you will reach the Pu'u Kukui Lookout. From here, look out for the high mountain peaks of Maui. Then retrace your steps back to the starting point.
