The Haipua'ena Falls Trail in Maui County, Hawaii is an easy 0.1 mile out-and-back hike to the 15 foot Haipua'ena Falls. The trail itself is often wet with larger rocks along the trail, so watch your step.

You'll pass through exotic local vegetation for no more than a few hundred feet before you reach the base of the falls. The pool in the falls can be used for swimming when the water is clear, but beware of flash flooding during heavier rains - do not attempt to swim or get close to the stream during heavy rains.

There's also a trail that leads up to the top of the falls, which is no more than 100 feet long one-way (not shown in GPS data).

Parking: Parking can be found on the western side of the stream/bridge.

Warning: Flash flooding is a common occurrence along streams in Hawaii. Please check the weather before hiking this trail and do not hike upstream if the water is brown and rushing. Flash floods can occur anytime upstream where heavy rains fall and you cannot always predict when a flash flood may happen. Be aware of the dangers and hike at your own risk.

Respecting the Land
Hawaiian land is considered sacred to native Hawaiians and many locals, so please stay on-trail, take nothing but photos, and leave nothing but footprints. Respect the locals - don't stay for long and have a backup hike planned in case the parking lot is full.
