Firefighters from Makawao and rescue personnel from Kahului were dispatched to the scene at around 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Mar. 6, 2013.
The men, ages 40, 27, and 21, were located at 2 a.m. this morning in good health, according to Maui Fire Services Chief Lee Mainaga.
They were able to make it safety out to the trail head by 3 a.m., with no injuries reported, and no medical attention required, said Mainaga.
