Twin Falls Maui Reviews
Nice waterfall stop on Road to Hana Apr 16, 2010
One of the must-see stops along the Road to Hana in Maui, Hawaii is Twin Falls.
Twin Falls is a small waterfall in comparison to others on the island. However, the small size of the waterfalls enable you to get closer to the falls, and swim in them. Some would classify it as a hike to get to Twin Falls, but it felt more like a nature walk with heavy terrain to me. There are some uphill portions in getting to the Falls but you do not need to be an experienced hiker at all!
When you arrive there are some food carts with tropical snacks, fruit, and smoothies. Bring cash! I highly recommend trying the banana bread. There aren't a lot of places to stop and eat along this highway so it is a good idea to get a few snacks if you didn't bring any with you. There are also people selling Hawaiian-themed art. It looked authentic to me as opposed to run-of-the-mill cheap (non-authentic) Hawaiian souvenirs you may find at the airport or a hotel.
Here are the directions I got from a website to get to Twin Falls:
Between the town of Paia and Huelo, at the intersection of Route 400, the road changes from Highway 36 to Highway 360 and the mile markers start over again at zero. Past Mile Marker #2 a bridge crosses the Ho'olawanui Stream. To hike to the upper Twin Falls, park just before the bridge and follow the trail through the cow pasture for about 1 mile. To reach the lower (and closer)Twin Falls, park beyond the bridge on the right side of the road. The trail is located just before the bridge that goes through the trees and descends to the stream. The falls are about a two minute walk from the bridge.
Twin Falls is a great stop on the Hana Highway. Bring a bathing suit and a towel if you want to go in the water.
