Road To Hana
Oftentimes, you'll find the fruits of travel can be found in the journey to a place rather than just the destination itself. Such is the case with the drive to Hana on Highway 36. By necessity you'll have to take it slow with the road’s 617 turns and 56 one-lane bridges, which takes nearly three hours to navigate—longer if you stop at the plentiful sites along the way. Along the highway, discover lots to see and do: Kaumahina State Wayside Park; Keanae Arboretum; Wailua Valley State Wayside; Puaa Kaa State Wayside with small waterfalls and pools; and 122-acre Waianapanapa State Park with black sand beach, picnic area, native hala forest, cave and blowholes.
Past Hana, you’ll encounter the Kipahulu section of Haleakala National Park. Stop by the visitor center for info on nearby trails. One of them is the popular Pipiwai Trail. It’s four miles roundtrip, takes about 2.5-5 hours depending on the stops, and ends at the spectacular 400-foot Waimoku Falls.
