Journey into the unspoiled landscape of Maui’s east shore on a day trip to explore the area’s towering waterfalls and dense stands of bamboo, journeying along the iconic Hana Highway along the way. This hiking trip and scenic drive along the rugged eastern coastline of Maui is a great chance for nature lovers to explore a different side of this island beyond the beaches and luaus.
Start your day at the Maui Park n’ Ride, continuing on a drive along the famous Hana Highway, a rugged road on Maui’s east coast that winds past a range of incredible scenery and more than 50 bridges. Soon you’ll reach the trailhead for your hike to the waterfalls, journeying into a dense natural environment referred by locals and visitors alike as “old Hawaii.”
During the course of your hike, you’ll proceed past a collection of cascading streams and pouring waterfalls, also known as the “Seven Sacred Pools,” thanks to its sublime beauty. Proceed along paths cutting through dense groves of bamboo, continuing towards a number of other waterfalls buried deep in the forest, some towering as high as 400 feet (122m).
At the half-way point of your day, take a break for lunch featuring a deli-style sandwich. Return to your original departure point at the conclusion of your tour.
