This arduous but truly spectacular main trail ends at the beautiful Waimoku Falls, which plunges 400 feet from a lava-rock wall. To protect visitor safety, please be advised that, due to a rockslide in early 2017, Pools of ‘Ohe‘o in the Kīpahulu District of Haleakalā National Park is closed to visitors and will remain closed until the area can be assessed for risk of further rockslides. Please refer to the National Park Service website for more information and updates: nps.gov/hale/learn/news/rockslide- forces-closure-of-pools-of-oheo-at- haleakala-national-park.htm. Hāna Those who say “the journey is the destination” are talking about the Road to Hāna. With over 600 hairpin turns and 54 narrow bridges, this famous drive boasts scenery from plunging seaside cliffs to lush rainforests and teaches us all a life lesson to slow down and enjoy the ride. Depart early to avoid afternoon traffic, plan at least three hours to drive each way and consider a guided tour if you prefer not to drive yourself. The epic drive to Hāna, however, doesn’t at all detract from the small town’s charm and magic. Enjoy peace and isolation on the area’s serene beaches and dramatic coastal hikes. Stop by the town’s delightful Hasegawa General Store, a fixture in Hāna since 1910, and meet the town’s friendly people. For an East Maui explore THE FLANKS OF MOUNT HALEAKALĀ, THE KO‘OLAU FOREST RESERVE AND THE HĀNA FOREST RESERVE mark the eastern side of Maui. Beautiful streams rush down the forested slopes creating waterfall-fed pools, fed by the nearby volcano’s fresh-water streams, forming a breathtaking playground of lava-rock basins and terraced waterfalls.
