74. GO BEYOND HANA
PI‘ILANI HIGHWAY, just outside Hana, is a tight, mountainhugging road with blind turns, one-way bridges and heartstopping views from sheer cliff drops. The drive may be risky, but it's worth the draw of Maui's off-the-beaten-path wonders.
Watch for WAILUA FALLS, a 95-foot cascade located about 5 miles past mile marker 45 on Highway 31. MAKAHIKU FALLS (clocking in at 185 feet) is a half-mile hike up the PIPIWAI TRAIL, which also takes hikers upstream along the POOLS OF ‘OHE‘O and
ANCIENT HAWAIIAN TARO FARM sites. Further along the way are several small settlements, including KIPAHULU AND KAUPO. Finally, you will pass the famous ‘ULUPALAKUA RANCH AND MAUIWINE before arriving back in “civilization.” MAUI DIVE SHOP OUTLET STORE (808) 879-1775 EXT. 3 OR (800) 542-3483 ROBERTS HAWAII (808) 539-9400 OR (800) 831-5541
