Mendes Ranch and Trail Rides

The Mendes Ranch is an active cattle ranch located near the point of Kahakuloa on the east facing slopes of the West Maui Mountains. The ranchland extends from the mountains to the sea and provides for beautiful scenery as well as a wonderful ride. The ranch has been active since the 1800's and is owned by the Portuguese descendent Mendes family. The ranch has been in their family for many years and the cowboys that run the ranch are referred to as "Paniolo". These are the original cowboys of Maui and you will enjoy riding with them. If you are a bit more of an accomplished rider than just a beginner you may wish to allow your horse to run, which is permitted if you have the inclination and ability. Lunch is also an option for you and you'll get a chance to see what a real Paniolo meal is all about.
