Twin Falls Maui

Are you looking for an easy and fun adventure on Maui that won’t break the bank?  Something for the whole family to do, but not just another day at the beach?  Have you heard about Twin Falls?

Twin Falls is a jungle adventure on the north shore, along the famous Road to Hana.  It’s become a popular day trip for both tourists and locals, where they can get out of the city and experience the lushness of the rain forest and see tropical flowers and plants in a garden-like setting. Songbirds chirp and chickens scratch amid fragrant and colorful flowers, palm trees, and giant bamboo.  The forest floor is alive with ferns and mosses.  Trails meander uphill to some fresh-water mountain pools with waterfalls.  Many trails are wide and well groomed, with more challenging ones for experienced hikers… all the way up to the top falls.  Slower people can participate by having a picnic at the tables near the entrance.  Portable bathrooms are on site.  An unpaved parking lot near the entrance has room for a few dozen cars, and there’s parking beside the highway.  Please don’t park on the bridge.  The parking and the trails are free of charge.

The Farm Stand features delicious fruit smoothies made with local seasonal fruits and pressed sugar cane.  Banana bread, coconuts, fruits and other healthy snacks are for sale.  After a hike and swim you’ll appreciate these refreshments!  Help out the land owners by buying some treats as a way of paying for your big day out.

Flash flooding can occur and visitors should always be aware of the weather conditions and be prepared to leave quickly.  Rain up the mountain can cause streams in the area to rise rapidly even in sunny weather.  To see some extreme weather at Twin Falls click here.

Huelo neighborhoods – If you’re thinking about real estate in the area, this part of Haiku is known as Huelo, or even more specifically Honopou.  Some of the roads here with properties for sale are: Honopou Rd, Puniawa Rd, Honokala Rd, Ulalena Loop, Ho’olawa Rd, Waipio Rd, and Door of Faith Rd.  I’m happy to help you with any questions about the neighborhoods and real estate market.


Let’s go hiking!

Drive out through Haiku on the Hana Highway and go just past the 2 Mile Marker post until you come to a bridge with cars parked on both sides.  Please remember it’s a main highway, so pull over quickly and don’t block traffic.
