Go Beyond Hana

Beyond the CityMaui

PI‘ILANI HIGHWAY, just outside Hāna, is a tight, mountain-hugging road with blind turns, one-way bridges and heart- stopping views from sheer cliff drops. The drive may be risky, but it’s worth the draw of Maui’s off -the-beaten-path wonders.

Watch for WAILUĀ FALLS, a 95- foot cascade located about 5 miles past mile marker 45 on Highway 31. MAKAHIKU FALLS (clocking in at 185 feet) is a half-mile hike up the PĪPĪWAI TRAIL

which also takes hikers upstream along the POOLS OF ‘OHE‘O and ANCIENT HAWAIIAN TARO FARM sites. Further along the way are several small settlements, including KĪPAHULU AND KAUPŌ. Finally, you will pass the famous ‘ULUPALAKUA RANCH and MAUIWINE before arriving back in “civilization.”
