Descent

The Wailua Falls Trail in Hana, Maui, Hawaii is a tiny 0.1 mile out-and-back walk to the base of Wailua Falls - an 80 foot waterfall that sits next to the Hana Highway.

This is a popular swimming spot, but beware of flash flooding during heavy rains. The trail is short, but not easy to navigate as you have to scramble down and over rocks to reach the base of Wailua Falls.

If you just want to enjoy the waterfall, you can see almost the entire thing from the road.

Parking: a larger parking lot can be found just south of the falls along the road.

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.
