Water Source

The Upper Waikani Falls Trail in Hana, Maui, Hawaii is an easy 0.2 mile loop walk up to a 20 foot tall waterfall. You can also access a small trail to Lower Waikani Falls on the west side of the Wailua Nui Stream. The Lower Waikani Falls is a bit shorter than Upper Waikani Falls at about 10 feet tall.

The trail leads out to a swimming hole at the upper falls, but beware of flash flooding - do not swim during heavy rains. Benches and picnic tables can be found along the trail as well.

Parking: A lot can be found across the street from the trailhead along the Hana Highway.

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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, and no goal to profit - we share trail data for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes money and a lot of time and effort (including espresso shots) to run the site. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
