The Road to Hana is a 52-mile (84 km) narrow, winding, scenic road, leading to the little town of Hana, located at the eastern end of the island of Maui, Hawaii. The road, which travels mostly through lush, tropical rainforest, passes over 59 bridges, 46 of which are only one lane wide, and around approximately 620 curves. Driving it can be a harrowing but rewarding experience.
Too many years have passed since our 1987 honeymoon for me to remember the names of many of the places we saw, but I've selected a few representative photos to share here.
One of the many waterfalls seen along the way
The trail to Waimoku Falls led through this pasture.
The pasture was occupied.
The trail also passed through a bamboo forest so dense that it was like night in there. This photo was taken with a flash.
The two-mile one-way hike brought us to this...Waimoku Falls
This gives a little perspective as to the size of the waterfall.
Waimoku Falls, the largest waterfall on Maui, drops 400 feet down a sheer lava rock wall into a boulder-strewn pool below. It's an awesome sight and made every step of the hike worthwhile.
